I live in an agricultural region, so it is very common... even on residential properties where there are fractional shares involved.

Never have in 37 years.
I do not....not in a rual area.
Once every blue moon...
Twice in the past decade.
Have not dealt with water right issues in my 22 years.
Our brokerage deals with these regularly for rural properties. Water rights are a big issue in the Central Oregon high desert - and having water can determine whether or not you can utilize the property the way you intend. Loss of water can destroy the economic vitality of a property.
We have lakes, but it doesn't really come up as our biggest lake, Candlewood Lake is actually owned by the local power company.
I've never dealt with water right issues.
never in my marketplace.....
Zero, it's just something for the test.
Almost never. Occasionally I'll run itnto a shared well, or shared pond.
Never in the areas I serve.
Those issues have never come up for me and do not appear to be an issue in our area
Working in the City of Denver, we usually have public water, but on occasion I send rural acreage, and do have water rights.
I'm in the 'burbs. I've never had it come up, nor have I heard of it in 30 years in and adjacent to this business.
Never...We are in the city...suburb.
Seldom in the areas I have serviced!
I do not
Nada in the SE US. Never in San Diego, since it is municipal water service most of the time.
We do not have that issue or problem here in NH. The governement only gets invloved with commercial uses pumping water for commercial use
Never once in 25 years.
Not very often and usually we deal with flood zones.
Seana Johnson - not much! I have never had to worry about it - yet.
only on waterfron properties.
We do residential, mostly in the suburbans, a few rural properties. I don't think we've ever had a property with water rights.
We do not have those issues in our market.
Never had a water right issue - ever!
Rare excpet for the smaller burgs
Not so uncommon. But not in the context you want.
Here the issue is the neighbor installed an elevated patio and the other neighbor directed their gutters to the fence line. Now the subject owner yard gets flooded by storm water runoff every rain.
It is the water right to NOT get flooded because of changes neighbors make.
I haven't ever had to deal with this in my 13 years in the business.
Not an issue in our mainly urban area.
Seana Johnson Not really an issue here.
In Virginia they are called Riparian rights and it only applies to waterfront property.
