If my property line goes through my neighbor's stairs, do I own that land?

Question Details: We let our previous neighbors build stairs that partially went over the property line by about 4 feet. Our new neighbor of 2 years is now claiming that they own the land under the stairs, the entire strip on land running perpendicular to the stairs, and also an additional 10 feet into our land. They also keep mentioning that the house is in litigation even though we have not received a single notice since she has been there. Does she really own all that land?
