Boundary lines between properties in California are not always as clear as they should be. As a result, you may have a neighbor who puts up a structure that exceeds the boundary line and winds up on your land, whether in whole or in part. The legal term for this is encroachment. Your neighbor may encroach on your property purposely, or it may be accidental due to a misunderstanding or miscalculation.
There are many different types of businesses you can start in California, and all involve their own strengths and weaknesses. If you would like to take advantage of pass-through taxation while protecting your personal assets from business creditors, a limited liability company may be a good option. According to FindLaw, there is no minimum number of people required to form an LLC, which means you can form one yourself and enjoy some advantages of both a corporation and a sole proprietorship.
