For years now, my neighbors have been having their crew(the husband works for a landscaping company) plow their snow onto my property. My property was once an empty lot owned by them, they sectioned it of and built this house back in 2001, when I puchased it, since then I have been putting up with this. I also have another serious problem with our property line, originaly there were orange spray paint marks that were over past their driveway but had an x on that spot and moved over about a foot towards my property and remarked, how do I deal with these neighbors?

I have the same problem and have asked neighbor to stop plowing snow onto my property. Any suggestions?

I have the same problem. New property owners with a lot of money recently closed a public road that runs perpendicular to my property. The people along that road always plowed the snow down over my property, often flattening my fence. I didn't object then, but the new owners have gated the road. The road, which used to be everyone's access to public lands, is now closed to me, so I would like to stop them from plowing their snow down over my property. I just started investigating my options today and noticed this forum.

1.)Since I've last written, my neighbor is now trying(a little)to keep the snow off my property by not plowing it to the very end of his driveway, I did mention it to the crew last year, by the way. Does anyone if there is some kind of ordinance about snow removal from personal property? 2.)I'm still interested in finding out about the property line situation, since I'm paying taxes on it, you would think I wouldn't have a problem, but I heard that because they are using that property(their driveway is paved on it about 6"-12", where I wanted to plant border trees)they may have rights to it. This may not sound like a lot of space(1 foot), but when there is not a lot space behind my house, it makes a big difference, enough that I can't plant the trees there. I live in Johnston, does anyone the laws governing this situation?

Ask them to stop plowing into your property. If they do not comply, mail a certified letter to them asking the same thing.

And when the snow clears this spring have a surveyor come and map your land.

Thank you for the e-mail. I'm disabled and cannot afford a survey of the property line. I'm trying to keep a friendly relationship with my neighbors, but not a the expense of losing my property, any advice?

I have a similar problem... I live across from a business that continually plows the snow from their large lot directly into my front yard. I would be willing to put up with the snow, except in the process my lawn gets torn up from their plow. Does anyone know what my legal rights are?

My neighbors wouldn't listen to me. They were plowing their whole yard, not just the driveway, into my yard, and we are on small city lots. So it came down to calling the cops after this was going on for years. Technically, it's probably trespassing. So they are not allowed to do it. I also put up a beautiful 6' fence. :)

I would contact the dept. of building if snow was dumped on my property. My neighbors are doing this to me and also emptying half there pool water with chem. into by back yard and also the pool cover water also. They put the hose near my fence in order to do this. I did call the building dept. Yes I have asked them not to do it a few times, then they did it to the house behind me one year and back to me the next. So finally I did contact the dept of building. my back yard was flooded and the foundation of my house also. even water coming from the back of my house and draining into the front of my house also. plants have died and patio is full of soil. my pool liner is now not level all lumpy due to force of there water. Have same issue with shoveling show from there driveway onto my plants/ivy instead of there own side which is right next to there driveway also. I have asked them many years and do not want to report them but might have to. they even moved my garbage can so they would have more room for there snow in front of my house. never had this with previous owners. one year we shoveled out correctly and then they double parked there car in front of my driveway and cleared there car. I had an ambulate coming for me the next morning for surgery and needed my access cleared. not o-k having to do it 2 times due to them.

Call the police dept request a written not verbal no trespass order against party owners and get a copy . Post sign no trespass or dumping near property line,driveway wherever offending party creates a nuisance. Chicken wire if permitted to set a boundary. Re: draining pools DEM dept of environmental mgt whereas bleach into the ground has an effect on earth and wildlife also. Plus municipal sewer office whereas pool should be drained into their sewer and they prefer emptying it onto your property or street and not pay sewer services for it. Oh well some day when we hit the lottery we'll buy a house in the woods and have geese for protection there bills have hooks in them and yes latch onto trespasser and then there wing opens and strikes the shin bone breaking it. Even if lines cut ,there are 2 ,doesn't matter those guys will get them el pronto then cops can take burglars away ! Not like the old days I'm 68yrs neighbors had coffee together,helped out,friendly ,respected each other,extended family. Now wanton disregard ! Also cameras oh yes nothing like a video, no he said she said. Best wishes .
