The end of summer a person parked their boat on my property. He owes me money and here it is almost summer and the boat is still on my property. What can I do legally to keep the boat?
Write him a letter stating what you are owed and probably add a sum for using your land as a parking space. Give him a reasonable time to respond - include details as to where his payment should go and the deadline to pay and remove the boat. Make it clear you will be filing in court if he does not comply by the certain date. Mail it to him certified mail. If the amount owed is under $10,000 you can go to Justice of the Peace court without an attorney . Think about the TV courts such as Judge Judy!
