My neighbor recently graded and cleared a lot next to my property, and in doing so he also graded approximately 75- 100 feet over the property line onto my property. How do you estimate the damage in a dollar amount and how should I proceed to get a settlement?
Based on the facts provided, there may be multiple causes of action that would give rise to damages. The amount of damages would be dependent on many factors, including any devaluation of the property. I recommend that you consult with an attorney experienced real property litigation.
