Not sure as yet what the damages are. This concerns my son's house in Chico, CA. He is also thinking about contacting PG&E concerning the care of the lines. Some qualified person will be out to check his house out. His own homeowner insurance said it was his neighbor's problem.
No I do not. I don't actual know if the tree fell or if the his branches brought down the power lines. I wish to forward this to my son so that he can reply properly. Would that be alright with you? I'm just trying to find out what can be done legally. From what I can understand the owner of the property has been contacted several times concerning the problem with his trees.
So we can't move until we find out the cost of the damages, which makes good sense.I guess that if it's under 6,000 then he can go to some claims. Does he have any recourse with PG&E?
So when he finds out the total amount of damages then he can go forward. It's unfortunate that some people just won't take responsibilty for their lack of caring for other's property. If the monetary amount is more six figures does he then have to obtain an attorney or can he file hiimself?
The owner of the house next door just put his property up about a week ago for sale. It has been a rental property for awhile now. If in fact the house sells real quick does that mean that he is no longer liable because in fact it is no longer his property?
Thank you sir! Step one, get estimate for damages and then go forward. I will recommend that if needed my son can get in touch with you concerning any legal matters. I thank you most warmly..... Cheryl
