A: There might or might not be an easement recorded in the county records for your leach field. If the new neighbor interfered with the leach field, you could end up in court to assert the right to keep using the leach field. Make friends with the new neighbor to avoid any problems, but also use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local real estate attorney to review the real estate records and advise you of your options.
