Q: How can I prove I am being harassed by the city
Code enforcement is harassing me. Now they are targetting my neighbor for helping me
A: You need a lawyer who knows how to protect your civil rights. Code enforcement harassment can result in liens against your property which then drive up your mortgage payments and can put you in danger of losing your home if you can't afford the new payments your mortgage company can force on you if they do pay the code enforcement liens.
