Hello and welcome! I am an attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
I am very sorry to hear about this situation and your neighbors being unreasonable. Unfortunately, when neighbors are behaving like this you are left with very limited options when you have exhausted all attempts to reason with them. However, you have the right and a valid claim to bring them to court based on a private nuisance and interference with your use and enjoyment of your property. This would include any damages in addition to a court order being issued requiring them to clean up the area and prevent them from further action.
This matters can be contentious but if they won't negotiate you really do not have a choice unless you decide you can live with their behavior.
Here is a link to the State Bar of California Lawyer Referral Service that can assist you with locating a lawyer in your area to retain for a private nuisance/tort litigation matter: http://www.calbar.ca.gov/Public/LawyerReferralServicesLRS.aspx
All my best and encouragement. Thank you for allowing me to help you with your questions. I realize this was not the answer you were hoping to receive however I have done my best to provide information which truthfully addresses your question. Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
Hello again. This is a courtesy check in to see if you needed anything else in regards ***** ***** question because you never responded or replied positively. Pressing a positive rating will not cost any additional money - it is simply the trigger used by Just Answer to pay me for my time (pressing the middle star or the fourth or fifth star on the right are all positive rating buttons). I am simply touching base. Let me know. Thanks!
