A walkway leading from the front yard to the back yard at my

A walkway leading from the front yard to the back yard at my house has been in place for more than 15 years. Some of the land occupied by this path is on my neighbor's property. Three years ago I put up a fence to enclose the walkway. The then-owner was living overseas, and to my knowledge, unaware of the encroachment.One year ago a real estate developer purchased the next door property. This developer is now telling me that they are going to remove the fence and put up another one along the real property line. Doing this would remove my long-standing access to my backyard.

I live in Dallas Oregon. We bought 70 acres about a year and

I live in Dallas Oregon. We bought 70 acres about a year and a half ago. The north property line is about a quarter mile long, with only half being fenced.We were contracting with the north neighbor to build an out door horse arena in the southeast corner of our property.The people we bought the property from were there over 20 years. Now this north neighbor has brought a cat onto our property, trespassing and destroying trees and other plants, as well as destroying a portion of the existing fence saying that his property extends past the fence. The plot map we were given upon purchasing clearly shows he has trespassed. He has bladed out property on three different occasions.What are my options?Thankz, Geff

Our previous neighbor in, constructed a wall to level s yard

Our previous neighbor in Virginia, constructed a wall to level his yard which encroaches by about 3 feet x 10 feet over our property line. He did not ask nor receive our permission. When he sold his home the buyer called this to our attention. We wrote him a letter granting him permission to use our land for as long as we owned our home and indicated that we were not binding any future owner of our property. We are selling our home. What should we do?

A twenty year old five foot retaining wall is beginning to

A twenty year old five foot retaining wall is beginning to cave in the middle. I am on the lower side and my neighbor on the upper. We don't know whose responsibility it is. My survey does show a double lined rectangular box along my driveway where the retaining wall sits. Does this mean it is on my property and my responsibility?JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: TexasJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, we really don't want to go that far. We would probably be willing to split the cost or pay a percentage if we knew whose it was,JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No just wondered if my survey was indicating it was on my property and therefore mine.JA: OK.

We share in alley with 2 commercial biz's in CA. There have been +50 paring citation in a year. The city has come out to paint the property line/ discuss with owners and staff where the property ends and can get tickets. Few weeks later staff painted new lines to confuse all. Parking enforcement comes out and the staff comes out to debate, points to new illegally painted line, creates additionally confusing. We have all on video/photographs, including them attempting to remove the paint. Can someone please point to a law that highlights the repainting line/ attempting to confuse city representative, covering up after the fact details as being illegal police can prosecute?

I'm in Dallas. My next door neighbor has years erected

I'm in Dallas. My next door neighbor has for two years erected several 15 ft. tall, brightly colored banners along out property line in the back yard. I want to plant something that will hide these hideous banners, but I'm worried there might be legal consequences if I choose bamboo to plant. I've checked with Dallas Code Compliance, who said there were no restrictions. Since part of my back yard is in a flood plain, I checked with those folks about any restrictions. They knew of nothing. What is the risk of losing a lawsuit should my neighbor choose such an action?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: OK.
