What is the Iowa code on evespout run off to flood another person's home

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Iowa

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

No

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

A city official told her she had to get an elbow on her evespout and an extension straight out to her sidewalk instead of pointing it to my fence.

You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.

There are several sources.

First is the Iowa Constitution.

Second is the Iowa Administrative Code.

Finally, there is Case Law on the subject in Iowa which also augments the statutory law.

I absolutely will rate you. I hope to get the answer so I can proceed and have the Iowa Code to give to the city. I know one cannot delibertly )(sp) flood another property and this is what has happened over and over. I want the code to take to the city to help them get this handled. This person is in violation of so many things and it needs to be stopped. I need your help with the water runoff code on another person's property to proceed. I know from a farm situation several years ago where a farmer had his tile exiting right at the fence line so he would flood another person's property. This was illegal and was immediately handled. I need the code now to get this handled quickly before any more damage occurs.

I gave my credit card for $5.00 and assumed I would get an answer from that. If not, please do not run my credit card. I am disappointed.
Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 11 months ago

Sure, I would be happy to clarify how the code/case law may apply. Please give me a second to type out my answer.

Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 11 months ago

Oh, no. The $5.00 is the deposit. Not the cost. Which is clearly explained before one asks the question. You may go to www.justanswer.com/help to confirm this and also to cancel your question, then.

All the best!

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.

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.
