This is my last resort. He has been doing this ever since he moved in. Probably 10 years now. My husband works 10 to 12 hours a day. We have a lawn service take care of our yard. Yet every time this guy nows, my husband has to go out and take care of removing the grass from our drive. We have talked to,him numerous times. Today we took pictures of the mess and it rained on top of it. So,it was that much harder to remove. His excuse was that I don't respect him, because,I don't speak to him.???? What is to respect. It would really be disrespectful if I really told him what I think of him. I don't intend to stoop to his level. Do we have any legal recourse?
There really is nothing the legal system can do to solve this issue. Neighbor problems are difficult to solve. After 10 years, it is unlikely to change. But you can use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local attorney to send the neighbor letters, you can file complaints with the local building and zoning dept., call the police, etc. You might even have your attorney file a trespass charge. Any of that might escalate the tension.
