Not a new issue, but our neighbor
's fruit tree is extending about 5 feet into our yard and is within inches of touching our house. Our neighbor has told us he has "no time" to cut the encroaching branches that have fruit on them, but this morning, he was actually picking the fruit. He has time to pick the fruit, but not trim his branches. Huh? What are our rights? Can we trim the encroaching tree branches?
JA: Because real estate
law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No.We're trying to be good neighbors.
JA: Is there anything else the Real Estate Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: This neighbor refused another time to cut branches off another tree (no fruit), and we cut it back ourselves. He actually cut the branches once and left ONLY those that were extending into our yard. Nice neighbor, yeah?
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 Real Estate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
