I have had a phebalium hedge which has provided support

Customer Question

I have had a phebalium hedge which has provided support for the'upside' neighbours driveway.
JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
Customer: Historically this hedge has presented a view issue for the neighbour.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: I have had the hedge cut down but maintained the trunks to the height of their driveway to preserve its security.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: Q: is their a legal proportional cost estimated for each neighbour.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

Where the hedge provides a support to the driveway then you have made the best choice, as your neighbour has the right of support in case the driveway slips to your side. The costs are usually shared in this situation as they have the benefit of better views
