Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney and I look forward to assisting you.

Has the drainage caused damage to your property? Is the water flow to your property "natural" or is it being redirected by the neighbor so that it flows onto your property?

Expert:  Loren replied 11 months ago.

Thank you for the additional information. Redirecting the water from the pool to drain onto your property is a trespass and you can demand that they cease such incursion onto your property. If they refuse then you can sue for damages in the county court.
