Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I would like to assist you with your question today.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
As far as repairing the gutters within 10 days. Usually if you communicate with the code enforcement officer and let him know that you are taking steps to have the repairs made they will allow you additional time to complete the repairs. This does not mean you can months to do the repairs. But extending the time by a few weeks is possible. What you will want to do is to let him know that you have contractor lined up to do the work and when the expected completion date is. If you have a written contract
with an anticipated completion date, provide that the code enforcement officer. Also if you can temporarily fix the old gutters so they still function that may appease the officer. The code usually doesn't distinguish between a dented or bent gutter that has been straightened out and a picture perfect gutter.
As far as taking out a protection order against your neighbor that can be difficult. Protection From Abuse Orders of PFA's are available in Pennsylvania when the abuser is a family member. That is not the case in situation. You many be able to file criminal complaints
against your neighbor for Harassment
and stalking 18 Pa.C.S.A § 2709.1 and Harassment 18 Pa.C.S.A § 2709. http://www.legis.state.pa.us/WU01/LI/LI/CT/HTM/18/00.027.009.001..HTMhttp://www.legis.state.pa.us/WU01/LI/LI/US/PDF/2002/0/0218..PDF
Review the two statutes and see if his conduct is similar to what is prohibited by the statutes. If so report it to the police.
If it is not you can still notify him that you do not want him to come on to your property or to make attempts to communicate with you by calling, yelling at or attempting to talk to you. If he does not honor that requests then you should be able to hopefully have harassment charges filed against him.
I hope that I have answered your question. Please let me know if you have more questions or need more information.
