Customer Question
If my neighbour is...

If my neighbour is trespassing in my property and cutting my hedge more than a meter from the fence inside my property, do I have to have video as a proof , or a photo of the cleared hedge is enough?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

WA

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No, but I did spoke to Shire ranger in the past and police officer over the phone

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Is that breach of the law

Good Morning

Have you spoken to them? If not you have to speak to them and request that they not enter your land without your consent.

If they continue to do it then you can take action against them and get orders that they not enter.

But you have to speak to them and make it clear that you do not agree to them entering your property.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
