My neighbor built his driveway that extend across on my property under my front window. I spoke to him numerous times as to where the property line is even before he built it. I would like to have him remove it so I can build my own fence. I sent him a certified letter giving him a deadline to remove the concrete structure(yard) What can I do to get him to act seeing I don't have money to take him to the Supreme Court.

Maverick. A neighbor built about 8 inches over our 20 foot

Hi maverick. A neighbor built about 8 inches over our 20 foot wide property line in brooklyn. We wish to demand that they remove the breach or pay x amount of dollars.How long do we have to give them to cure and since their breach was with concrete and brick ( and they will probably wish to use such again) , can they be granted an extension for after the winter time to cure if we inform them in December? Concrete workers have many problems doing concrete work in freezing temps, snow and can be impossible. Or does the their liability remain, forcing them to cure and if necessary, make a porch out of metal or implement a basic ramp to their door until they are able to do their work.Furthermore, is there a statutory penalty for building over the property line? Or in other words, do we have a right for x in damages even if they cure?In addition, I believe you have to contest within 10 years in new York, the building upon your property.

The house next door is a rental, we have paid to have the tree cut in the past ,but it has become a big problem it's over my roof and removing the slates : Your home owners insurance has been canceled as the tree is dangerous. Over two years now,the owner made a big show of marking the tree ,but rented the house again.and the renter's are responsible for maintaining the garden.They obviously didn't have the kind of money needed to take care of this problem. Right now it's rented,but not like before he takes care of the property it was rent to own.I would be greatfull to understand the law I'm in South Carolina. Union.

Hi. We have a fence around our property. We have alot of trees on our property. Some trees overhang the neighbors driveway and other trees and bush overhang a field some of which is owned by the neighbor. Nothing is near his house. He is hassling us to trim the trees and brush. I tin it's his responsibility to trim, not us. An arborist actually told me that too. So do I need to trim?
