He removed 18inch lawn from my property thinking that it belongs the other lot with out even asking me or checking the plot map. Can I sue the builder for what he has done? he said he will fix it but not sure when but I want to take a legal action.

A: A North Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. The decision to sue is yours to make. You mention wanting to take legal action, but your description mentions that the builder expressed a willingness to fix the damage. Depending on the dimensions of your plot, it's possible working cooperatively to rectify the matter could be more economical than court. If you discussed in further detail with a local attorney, that could help you better assess your options. Good luck
