Customer Question
Hello, I have a...

Hello, I have a bit of a problem with my neighbors. My partner and I moved into a neighbor hood just outside the city limits. Our house was the first house built on the block and we watched others built around us. That was 4yrs ago.I say about 2yrs to now we hear people walking by and calling us obscene words that I refuse to say. yes I smoke the funny stuff every once in awhile but not often. last Friday night I came home from a gala and wanted to smoke. When I drove around the corner to my house and into my driveway there were at lease nine people standing outside waiting for me to come home. I said to myself that this is crazy. I have no privacy what so ever. They know when I leave to go to work, when I come home, and my days off and also they are at my job yelling FREAK into my store. Saturday morning I saw an undercover cop watching my house. I really think that they all have listening devices in their homes and planning their next move. I also feel that they have military thermo cameras looking into my house while I am here because one day I was walking in the naked I heard a person say he's in the bedroom. I have black out curtains and blinds for that one reason. I am being watched all of the time. I just do not feel comfortable. I put too much into this house to move.

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

Texas

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

Not that I know of.

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.

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.
