I loaned my car to my sister-in-law on the condition that

I loaned my car to my sister-in-law on the condition that she pay for the increased insurance ($25), does not damage it, does not do anything illegal with it (like drugs), come help my mother out, and return it immediately if we needed it. This was all a verbal contract and she has had it for about four months. I requested it back because I was having trouble with the car I drive and gave her as much notice as I could, about 14 hours of notice. She never responded. I notified her when I headed out to retrieve it and she never responded. I got it home and within an hour she had come over and took it out of my driveway. When I had it I noticed it was damaged, she had not been paying the money or helping my mother, and seems to be doing drugs (making indications of past behavior and talking being able to do weed and alcohol to my brother (separated)). My brother indicated she talked to him about it the night before so she got the message. The deputies the police sent out say it is a civil matter. Isn't a verbal contract as good as writing in this case? The second I took it back that contract should have ended and for her to take it again would require a new contract (which was not created)? Would a ranking officer be able to make a different call (the two deputies (two separate calls) were worried about their boss being mad). It has been a few days now.

What is the difference between "a road" and "a driveway"

what is the difference between "a road" and "a driveway" legally? There is an "shared driveway access easement" between two adjacent parcels of land. The one built first put in the driveway running the length of the building to a parking lot. The adjacent land locked lot is planning to put in a 180 home sub-division, using this driveway as the 2nd entrance/exit. The Medical office building that is using the driveway now has 5 offices total. The building is set only about 20 feet off the driveway, which now is planned to be turned into a road. Is it legal to use a shared driveway easement signed in 2005 for a major subdivision access road in 2016? And what is the definition of a road vs. a driveway. I would think logically that a driveway would lead to a place where one could park. the plan is to connect a road that leads to a parking area in the sub-division to the road that leads to the small parking lot in the Medical building. To me that connects two roads and is now a road and not a driveway. Any help would be appreciated.

For twenty years I have lived in a neighborhood with issues.

For twenty years I have lived in a neighborhood with issues. I have reported to police but had to endure: nails in my driveway which flattened my tires, poisoned trees on my front lawn, neighbors shouting at me "getting what you deserved" when I reported that a neighbor knocked on my door and forcefully shouted at me then broke a light, trash dumped in my yard, kids putting their bikes into my car while I was driving, children bullying me with loud voices, neighbors smoking pot outside so I can smell it in my home, dead cats put into my backyard, children beating/fighting in the street, I have been attached by dogs while walking at night, etc. The police sergeant told me I am at fault for not calling in the problems but I have. When I call in the officer assigned never follows up with me -- even if I request follow-up. Then, when I try to reach the officer to see about the incident report, I get another officer who tells me he was the one who went to the neighbors house and they didn't see anyone home. They confuse reporting and the never give me a report number or case number ***** the incidents. When they make a verbal statement to me, somehow whatever they say is never done. I never get case numbers on the incidents that have been reported. They never have the same officer follow up. It is constant weirdness. I am told I am supposed to help the police in my town but it is impossible because of their own communication issues. When I write the information down that I am given, they later tell me the information I have is wrong. they also make weird comments to me : "I know you don't like yourself", "I know them and they are nice people and it is not neighborly to call the police", "The citation will not force them to sell their house". Some of the statements the on duty officers say to me are this weird. I am concerned because I cannot afford to find legal help and the police and my neighbors are causing a lot of stress for me. I believe the police are treating me poorly because I report the issues that go on in my neighborhood and they say they want to deal with it but I believe in this small town they are all friends and they want it quiet. Why would the sergeant tell me to call in when the on-duty officers do not know what they are doing? They do not log the calls and I am not given a case number.

My father's estate has problems with neighbor. One (1) ): He

My father's estate has problems with neighbor. One (1) ): He put a fence up without a permit and which blocks the Estate's driveway Two (2): He paved his private road without a permit and made it higher making it so that a car is not able to get into the Estate's driveway without tilting over. Three (3): He yelled and screamed at real estate brokers to get off his private road so that agent and buyer were unable to walk the property. What are the behaviors in this scenario that could rise to tortuous interference with a real estate contract?If Estate hung on to the property while the Court decided this, can the neighbor be liable for the difference in the appraised value, the mortgage payments, court costs, and legal fees while the court was being decided?If the property was sold and the suit was not limited to forcing him to take down the fence or to regrade the driveway but instead the central issue was the interference with the contract for sale, could the Estate remain an interested party?
