Hello, and welcome. I am a licensed attorney and happy to assist.

If your brother is harassing you by making false reports to inspectors, causing them to come out and disrupt your business and/or family life, you can bring an action in court for defamation (making false reports) and for nuisance (unreasonable interference with your use and enjoyment of the property you occupy). You can also sue for an injunction prohibiting any further behavior of this kind by the brother. If your brother fails to comply with an order that he stop his harassing behavior, he can be held in contempt of court.

The law is on your side and you do not have to continue being the subject of this harassment.

I hope this helps. If you need additional information or clarification, please let me know and I will continue providing assistance. If I have addressed your concerns or pointed you in a positive direction, please remember to leave a positive rating when prompted, as that is how attorneys on this site are credited for the help we provide.

Good luck!

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.

This is a question regarding PA condo responsibility. Short
This is a question regarding PA condo responsibility. Short version... Residents are not to have bird feeders/feed animals. We live by the lake and there are animals nearby...Two of the owners below me (I'm 3rd floor) started feeding the birds and tossing scraps out when they moved in. I brought it up at meetings and in emails and nothing was done. Recently a raccoon (I believe) has pooped on my deck and entered a dresser, pooped and damaged it. After another letter to the Board they wrote a policy, but the owner on the 2nd floor continues to feed the birds. I suggested the Board contact Animal Control to trap the rodent. They did not respond. This happened several years ago and the owners complied and placed the feeders on the bluff...In addition, a new board member who took this under her belt suggested I do the neighborly thing and ask not to feed the animals, she became rude, I caused the problems, not to speak to her or or husband and hung up... I emailed the new member and informed her of what happened and that I left a message with the other owner, but will not contact her again. Am I responsible for something that the Board neglected to do? Is this free service? Thank you.... … read more
