What can a person do about a neighbors unkempt property
State/Country relating to question: Illinois
tried talking to owner,it is a rental property,he has continued to ignore property owners in out neighborhood to clean up property
Thank you for your question and for using JA. Is this in the city or the county and is there an HOA?
city, don't know if there is a HOA
If there is a HOA, then the HOA can send the owner a certified letter demanding that the property be cleaned up. If there is no property then you are going to have to depend on city codes enforcement. You can make a complaint to your city codes department and an inspector will come out an check the property and make the owner take the necessary steps to bring the property up to code. How much they can make him actually do depends on your particular city ordinances.
