Correction- I did try to trade an easement for a piece of property adjacent to my garage but he refused.

If he will not agree to remove this on his own the procedure would be to file an injunction having the court order him to remove the pipe. The neighbor is trespassing on your property by placing the pipe on your land.

Hi-


I thought an injunction requires an immediate and irreparable harm situation. The pipe has been there for a little over 3 years.


 


We just recently moved into this house (inherited from father 12 years ago) and have started remodeling etc and we are trying to identify property boundaries, easements, etc.(this is another story).


 


The property is in Pacific County.


 


Is an injunction the right thing to do?


 


 

That would be the way to have it removed. What do you have in mind and we can figure out how to accomplish it?
