Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello, Thanks for choosing Justanswer.com! I look forward to helping you with legal information today.
You may sue your neighbor in civil court for trespass, conversion and nuisance. You could also ask the court for an injunction so he would be prohibited from using the pipe anymore.
I would recommend working with a civil litigator on this issue. First, a cease and desist demand letter will be sent to your neighbor. If he fails to remove the condition causing the flooding to your land, you could then sue and obtain the prohibitary injunction. If you are successful in your case, your neighbor will have to pay all of your legal fees.
If you have any more questions, I am happy to answer them! If this answer is responsive to your question, please accept it. That is how we are compensated and it costs you nothing further to press accept. It would also be appreciated if you provided feed back on your view of the answer. Finally, if the answer was especially helpful you can provide a bonus but it is certainly not required. If I can be of further assistance or you have other questions in the future you can ask for me and reach me at this site. Thank you!
