May we insist that the property owner have the tree trimmed ASAP? I think the neighbors are renters.

Our upstairs toilet overflowed and caused 20+ gallons of water to spill onto the floor. As a result, our downstairs ceiling plaster collapsed causing out living room and dining room to be unusable for 3 weeks. High power heaters were placed throughout the house causing our electricity bill to sky rocket up to $250 from an average of $50 a month.Our rental property management company is refusing to discount our rent or pay for the excess electricity stating it was out fault. We did clog the toilet unintentionally from regular use but it should of not overflowed to the point that it caused damage to the house and personal property. Do you have any advice on how should we proceed?

Our family purchased a piece of property in Otis Orchards,

Our family purchased a piece of property in Otis Orchards, WA, and we have recently learned that the neighbor who owns property parallel to ours has recently had a survey of the land performed, which extends his property line into our drive way. Our driveway runs a 90 degree turn around his property from the main road to the entrance of our home. If this updated survey is accurate, they would be eliminating the 90 degree turn to our front door, which could not be extended due to a powerpole on the opposite side of the drive way. The electric company told me that if they have to move that pole it would cost me nearly $10,000. An engineer from the utility company told us that there was a law which may protect us due to the driveway/road being their for nearly 100 years. The opposing owner has recently placed a steel beam in the middle of our driveway to indicate his new property line. This in turn has blocked our access to the portion of the driveway nearest the front door. How can we stop his immediate action in order to mediate or handle matters in civil court?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Washington stateJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not by us and we have not received notice from anyone on his endJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
