Quick claim Issues : RealEstate

Me and my fiancee are intending to build a new house on part of the property beside our current home. Biggest issue has been determining property lines to ensure the location of our new home. We found out through the county, legal we dont own half our property because our neighbor filed a quick claim with the former land owner. The issue being the quick claim was signed in 1998, while my mother in law bought both the lots we own in 1987. The county (GA) refuses to get involved and expects us to resolve the matter. Because my neighbor is an absolute scumbag, I dont expect him to resolve this. What are my options outside of taking him to court? Or is that my only option?
