Lammey v. Eckel

In Lammey v. Eckel, 62 Ark. App. 208, 970 S.W.2d 307 (1998), the Court discussed one aspect of the law concerning boundary line by acquiescence. The Court stated: A boundary by acquiescence arises not by a parol agreement but from the actions of the parties. It is more in the nature of an implied agreement presumed to exist by the long acquiescence of adjoining landowners who apparently consent to a dividing line between their properties. The concept is based upon the landowners' tacit acceptance of a fence line or other monument as the visible evidence of their dividing line. The acquiescence need not occur over a specific length of time, although it must be for "many years" or a "long period of time."
