Customer Question
Can a cop come...

Can a cop come onto private property to take pictures of things a person "needs" to get rid of?

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

Nebraska

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

No. Nothing had been stolen. A cop keeps coming onto my property taking pictures of my personal property.

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

The cop got the town to vote telling us we needed to tear down our garage. We did and now our personal property is sitting in our law so a cop came over taking pictures saying it's an eye sore.

I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Is this a case where the building is in violation of the local code?

Lawyer: P. Simmons, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Again, this depends on context...was the reason to report a violation of municipal code?

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.
