Property line dispute.
We bought the property we live on in APR 2009 and the property behind the house was fenced in with our backyard, with an agreement to use the property for a year. without notice, in 2010 (approx 16 months after we moved in, the property owner had someone remove the fence which released our dogs into the neghborhood.
When we bought the property, it came with a sprinkler system in both the front and back. We placed our makeshift fence (for the dogs) at the 'natural terrain (and neighbors
fenceline) and we also used where our sprinkler heads came out as our guideline for the location of our 'fence'.
In 2009 we built a deck, which was permited by the city, which needed to be 4 feet from the property line.
Last year the property beind us was sold (we had a 'first right of refusal which was never presented to us). A surveyer came to my home and told my 1 year old son (the only one home) that he needed to get into the back yard. He came into my house and went to the back yeard and placed a stake about 6 inches from our permited deck.
This year the contractor
, who is building our new neighbors house removed our 'fence' and released our dogs into the neighborhood (again). He then ran over our sprinkler heads (which we thought was on our property, as we bought this house with a sprinkler system).
The contractor then built a rock was (as there is a slant to the properties) at the location (about 6 inches from where we thought our property was ocated (onto the new owners property). Now the new owners of this property want us to move our fence (again) so she can build a flower garden on "HER" preoperty and a fence.... which means our sprinklers wil now be watering her plants and her fence.
What are my options please?
