Does Lake Worth Florida have the Civil Law Rule for property damage caused by our neighbor puting paving stones on the grassy swale between our houses and also putting an extension on their run off gutter onto our property so the water does not flow on their property.

I own a house next door to a hoarder. He has had a house
I own a house next door to a hoarder. He has had a house fire in the past, and has been getting fines multiple times per year in regards ***** ***** junk. This week he told the public health worker that the boiler for his furnace is broken and that he is going to fix it, however has never fixed anything like this before and refuses to have a professional do it. I have always been concerned about the fire hazard, but now that he is going to fix his own furnace it is beyond the point of worry. I need to know what my rights are living next to a hazard such as this.
Thanks for taking my questions. I am living Potomac,
Dear Sir or Madam,Thanks for taking my questions.I am living Potomac, Maryland at zoning 200. My neighbor plans to build a fence of 4 feet high and 6 inches away from the property line in his side. The problem is that my six 20-feet high healthy Leighton trees along the property line have to be trimmed up to 3 feet to fit the current planned project.My questions:1. As the owner of the healthy trees (the roots are in my side 3 feet from property line), do I have obligation to trim the trees for the neighbor or does my neighbor have the right to trim my trees himself up to the property line?2. What if the trees are died from my neighbor's harsh trimming? How much should I request for the damage?3. What should I do in advance to prevent such thing happening or get compensation if bad scenario?Best,JoeJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: marylandJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: HOA needs neigbors to sign a form for agreement. I have not signed yet. But it is a formality. HOA will approve it anyhow.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
We purchased a 22 acre parcel of land in state that we are
Hello,We purchased a 22 acre parcel of land in Washington state that we are slowly developing to become our home. I had the surveyors out to mark the corners and while they were doing that they pointed out to me that the city messed up and installed a sewer pump station on our land instead of on the easement. I have big concerns about it, but I kind of left it on the back burner until this week. I went up to drop our boat off at the property and I realized someone had bulldozed a path on our land right next to the pump station and pushed the debris into one of our ponds. After talking to the neighbors I found out it was the city that did it. They were working on the pump station and installing new things into it. I feel that the city has now trespassed, destroyed a part of my land and installed more things on my land without my permission. I feel as though I should be entitled to some sort of relief and I don't know where to start... Help

In the "Seller Property Questionnaire Addendum" the Seller
In the "Seller Property Questionnaire Addendum" the Seller answered he is not aware of : "Any current or proposed construction that will affect existing views", and "Any current or proposed construction, near the property, of public or private facilities, such as highways, hi-rise buildings or commercial development".These statements are incorrect. Construction of a 21 new apartment project right across our home on the adjacent 1/2 acre canyon lot that had been in the planning with the city for the past three years just begun. This development poses a significant impact on our home as the planned 4 story complex will block our view, access to its underground parking just across from our home will solely be possible through "our" alley, and construction noise will occur over the next 16 months. We purchased this home due to its tranquil location at the dead end of an alley to avoid traffic noise and enjoy un-obstructed canyon view which the planned development will both ruin forever. Had the seller disclosed these plans to us we would have reconsidered the purchase. Need help deciding on the next steps.
