To whom can assist,
My name is Jeff & I live in Fishers IN, Hamilton County, Delaware Township
I have a few questions regarding a civil matter w/ a previous next door neighbor
My neighbor had a major storm water drainage
issue over the last 4 years. I proactively informed him of the matter as soon as it started. He continually ignored & eventually denied his responsibility for the damage. I have great pictures that document clearly the water coming from his house & onto my front yard as it eroded & killed approx 200 sq ft. of my property. I further have a letter from the City of Fishers Storm water engineer stating that the issue is caused by the neighbors run off supported by my photos.
There is another area in the backyard that the neighbor literally killed with vegetation killer out of spite. It is 2' x apprx 80' along my side of fence line.Damages
are approximately $1,000-$1500
I filed a small claims case which is scheduled for this Fri & can not be continued any further. Upon filing the claim I discovered that the homeowner
who caused the damage had sold & closed on the house 1 week prior to my filing the lawsuit.
My question: is he (previous homeowner) still liable or does the damage go with the new property owner based open the timing of the house being sold & closed and when the suit was filed?
Any suggestions or recommendations would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I sincerely ***** ***** assistance as I am not working due to health issues and can not hire an attorney.
