see the attached letter i took a picture of...
The guy is a realestate agent. He's actually very weird as a neighbor.
First, "haven't seen" Paige lately? This means what? He watches the home occupants and our guests? WOW!!!! What we do, when we come and go, is none of his business. Is he stalking???
Second, yes, he's bugging us. Consider point 1 (and that he's called DTE energy company without previously discussing with us, he has obsessively sent letters, called) i feel he's borderlining harassment and intimidating behavior; At no point did anyone say "no" for him to go so obsessively over the edge. Add the timing of Christmas and calling it an "issue", this shows how little couth he has!
Third, the branches he claims may be residual falling from the removal of the dead limbs and may also include healthy limbs--DTE came out and removed dead limbs about 1 month ago to clear the power lines (the call that he made to them). The tree removal process brushed/broke several limbs during the removal of dead limbs. He cannot state that falling limbs are coming from dead or previously healthy limbs. Nor that the source of these are from acts of God.
Fourth, he is always trying to extend his control outside of the bounds of his house. To the point of throwing things over our fence, telling us when we can put garbage out, picking up garbage across the street... very weird stuff. We do not appreciate the condescending tone. We are not idiots. The Charter he wrote is actually ARTICLE 710. It also states the tree must have dutch elm disease, which the tree cutters stated this tree does not have. I am curious, how did he make such determination that it was diseased?
Fifth, avoid rallying the troops in his madness. Randy is, from our understanding of the articles, to be at least 1/3 liable to any issues with the tree since it does not lie only on my property ("notice shall be made upon each owner of property or party in interest in the property in question"). Randy's home is at the rear of ours, and the tree is at least 1/3 on his property and 2/3 on ours (the fence stops on both sides of the tree, almost bisecting it in half or 2/3-1/3)
