In the state of. Currently under contract and buyers

In the state of Washington. Currently under contract and buyers requested sewer scope. Couple of surprises: 1) the PVC pipe has been compromised 2) the compromise appears 93 ft away from my house and about 55 feet into my neighbors property. It appears there is no easement. Initial approach was not favorable and I have backed off until I have more information, i.e. what exactly would be involved with repair and what would the impact be. My question is, do I have any recourse if he refuses to allow me access for repairs? Buyers have indicated they will walk if repairs are not completed.

I purchased a temporary above ground pool. I want to set it

I purchased a temporary above ground pool. I want to set it up in my back yard. An HOA fellow said I had to get approval first. I've read the CCR's which state I have to have approval for any changes to landscaping relegated to the front yard are any permanent structures. I would like to know why I would have to seek permission for something that is not specifically restricted?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: UtahJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet I could see no reason to do so. Maybe I'm just obtuse.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No permit is required. It was purchased from Costco. It will be inside a confined area with 5' foot high block wall and gated. The purpose is for two overweight 68 yr old husband and wife to excercise. The pool demension is 18'x11'x48". Again it can be taken down for storage in the winter and we had one last us 3yrs when we lived in California so it's not permant.JA: OK. Got it.

I live in a retirement community. One year ago the HOA

I live in a retirement community. One year ago the HOA decided to put a Landscape Maintenance building and yard next to my home. It has become a nuisance with trucks and cars coming and going all day. The front gates are always open giving the impression that it is their neighborhood. But, it is a neighborhood of houses now with this nuisance and hazard in the midst. Is there anything that could be done, assuming the HOA acted within the limits of the developments rules and regulations, to attempt to have this relocated?Don

I have a Bermuda-grass lawn that merges with my neighbor's

I have a Bermuda-grass lawn that merges with my neighbor's Zoysia-grass lawn...no barrier between. I hired a lawn-care company to maintain my lawn. My neighbor frequently complains to my lawn-care company that 1) they keep stepping on his lawn when caring for my lawn, and 2) when mowing, my cut grass is getting on to his lawn and acting as a weed. My lawn care company is well aware of my neighbor's demands and insists that they are not stepping on his lawn. I received a call from my lawn care company today saying that my neighbor and his workers got into a chest-to-chest argument and the police were called by both parties. (I'm at my office.) First, do I have any legal liability arising out of numbers 1 and 2 above? Also, do I have any legal liability arising out of the argument that occurred today? Finally, I have no idea what I can do to prevent these kinds of encounters with my neighbor. (He also aggressively confronts the painters, the roofers, the gutter cleaners, and any other contractors who visit my home to do work.) Any advice in this regard would be much appreciated?

We live in Florida. My neighbor is selling her house. I have agreements with my neighbor about my pets being allowed on her property, her not using any pesticides, etc. Does her realtor have to disclose these agreements with potential buyers? The neighbor agreed to this in writing and said she would have her realtor disclose to potential buyers, but I'm not sure I trust that.

My renter in Georgia hired a landscaper to cut the grass. The landscaper accidentally hit the neighbors fence and broke it. The landscaper admitted fault and came back the next day and came back again 2 weeks later to fix other issues in an effort to bring it as close original as possible. I had my property management team look at the fence. They said it looked right. Now the property owner of the fence wants me to fix it different and is threatening legal. Am I liable for this or is the landscaper?
