Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Are you asking if you can sue the owner of the home?
Your options are limited to have the place "demolished"...only the city has that power. And they have discretion (so you can NOT force the city to take this action...it simply is not possible).But you CAN sue them...what you are describing it sounds like you have a case of "nuisance".Under the law, if a property owner maintains their property in a way that offends their neighbors? The neighbor can sue for the nuisance.Consider hiring an attorney and filing a nuisance to recover for the loss of your property valuePlease let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
Any attorney with 'general litigation' experience can field this. You can contact the state bar for a referral.
