Do we have a case for a small claims harassment suit Neighbors

Customer Question

Do we have a case for a small claims harassment suit?

Neighbors to the rear of our home have had up to 5 "no trespassing" signs for the past 3 years facing our property. Some of the signs are worded directly to us: "Jim & wife hands off- don't be reaching over"; and: "This means you" and: "Gym & Laverna keep your grubby hands off our sprinklers". These signs are a blatant insult and obviously there to harass and insult.

Our yard is only 20 ft deep. We had to replace our wrought iron fence because it was rusting from their over-watering. This water has been a constant nuisance to us and our guests & has reached as far as our kitchen doors. They have also called the police on us making various false claims against us, causing embarrassment.

In addition, they play loud music which other neighbors have been bothered by as well. We've taken this abuse for the past several years but these signs are bringing this to a head. We are 75 & want to live in peace.
