Have Real Estate Law Questions? Ask a Real Estate Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you tonight.
Here you are going to need a local real estate litigation lawyer to sue the neighbor.Usually the lawyer sends them a demand letter and then if unresolved you sue here arguing they violated city codes/ordinance and should be required to come into compliance by moving it.
The neighbor bears all of the cost here to move the pool since they allowed it to be built in violation of the code/ordinance.The courts usually set a reasonable deadline for them to move it and come into compliance.If they fail to meet the deadline they are in contempt of court here.
You have rights through the Virginia courts and this includes damages to you for loss of use of property, legal fees, costs, etc.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.
