If you own property on one of Michigan’s many lakes, rivers or streams, you have most likely experienced the tremendous advantages to owning waterfront property…swimming, boating, fishing, and enjoying a cup of coffee on the dock. You have probably also realized that you can get a lot more than just peaceful waterfront views with your property. Riparian property can give rise to disputes over ownership, shared usage, access or easement rights, placement of docks, piers and boat lifts, and other issues.
