Next door neighbor owns a car (junk, not running); the car sits in the back yard between our houses. The car straddles the property line. It's been there for years. I want to clean up my back yard, get landscaping, and put up a fence. The car must be moved. But, my neighbor won't move... Read more »

IF (and that is a HUGE unknown!) the car is on your land, the neighbor is trespassing.
Are you 100% Absolutely Positively Undeniably CERTAIN of us on your land? You can have it removed but not necessarily onto the neighbor’s land — unless they neighbor consents to that. (You don’t... Read more »
Due to some hardships I have not been able to keep the property in proper care
My trampoline flew into a pond owned by a privately owned golf course during a major wind storm. The trampoline was anchored down and was ripped out by the wind. I live in an HOA that is next to the golf course. The trampoline is destroyed. Am I responsible for cleaning it up out of the pond?

What is the golf course owners saying? Even though it's an act of God, someone will still have to pay. Either the golf course will just do it on their own, or they will contact the HOA and the HOA will pay, and may end up tracing it back to you.
It may be worth your while to contact... Read more »
Local building inspector entered unoccupied private property without permission of owner or a warrant and take pictures to use as evidence in a civil procedure?
Can Camara v. Municipal Court (1967) or Mapp v. Ohio (1961) be cited to have the pictures deemed inadmissible?

Municipalities have wide latitude to enact building codes and enforce them for the benefit of public safety.
If the home is condemned or has other immediate safety issues, the city should have tagged the property and also sent out letters to the owners, based upon the owners'... Read more »
The bill is a three month cycle so I hadn’t noticed that I didn’t receive two bills, the bill is now 800$ past due. Is it legal for them to let him do this without authorizing with me or without him ever being on the lease?
answered on Mar 8, 2019
What your ex-husband did doesn't sound right. A person who isn't on a lease for property, or an owner, generally shouldn't be able to change the name on the account. Have you talked to the town about getting it fixed?
Despite the bill being in his name, you may still owe the... Read more »

Join the crowd! With passage of the new law, we are in the midst of a rush. Opening a new business regulated by new and untested laws can be a recipe for disaster. If you do not have experience in this industry, I would highly suggest you talk with operators in other states with similar laws (e.g.... Read more »
The township in Michigan where we live requires a septic inspection to be done before a house is bought or sold. When we bought a house 4 years ago, the inspector passed the septic system and said there were no problems. Now we're trying to sell, and the inspector from the same department is... Read more »

The law and requirements could have changed since you purchased the property. A septic inspection is required for most communities to issue a certificate of occupancy as well as for most lending institutions that will fund the purchase of the transaction. I would check to see if the alarm is now... Read more »

I don't see why not. I'm unaware of any fire chief being an elected position, and so there is no conflict by holding two different elected positions. More importantly, in most cases, the school district (and its board) is a separate and distinct entity from the local government. It's... Read more »
I left before he called cop's. What can I be charged with? The whole argument was over a loan and he tried to sell my 100.00 debt to someone we know.

You can be charged with assault and battery. That crime is a misdemeanor and is punishable by up to 90 days in jail.
