Next door neighbor has run-down car parked in driveway

Customer Question
Next door neighbor has...

Next door neighbor has run-down car parked in driveway (popped rusted hood, up on jacks, no cover). Been there for years. Neighbors have complained with no results. A real eyesore. Any legal action possible?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

Not working, old tag, rusted. Not sure the year manufactured.

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

Apparently not because it's been in this condition for years. I moved in 3 months ago.

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

Basically, he refuses to even put a cover over the car. It's an eyesore to the nice neighborhood. Just want to know if any legal action is available.

Greetings! I am a legal expert on the site and am working on your question.On review of your facts, you have a good case.You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.A lawyer letter start. martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.If needed, a court case could be filed. By being prepared and pressing your claim, the other side should feel the pressure and consider the risk of losing and legal fees. That realization can help bring about a settlement!Please let me know if that is acceptable and feel free to reply back and follow up

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

I recently Hired a contractor for the shed and the driveway.
I recently Hired a contractor for the shed and the driveway. He gave me two quotes. I agreed with the price and pay him up half upfront for each task. Three weeks into the project he only managed to completed the shed. For the driveway he only did partial. I gave him a deadline. A week later he admited that he cannot get the permit for the driveway. I have pay him upfront $2000 for the driveway, and he only managed to get a form about 250 square feet. No concrete has poured. So I expected that he owed me some money after paying him for his partial work on the driveway. Can I use the remaining balance for this unfinish driveway to pay for the remaining balance I owed him on the shed? Thank you for helping … read more
