After this many years, maybe not. Look up 'open and notorious usage'. She
may have a common-law easement. OP should find the corner pins for the lot
and verify if what Gramps said is true. If that takes a survey, it is money
well spent. If she is infringing, time to get with the city and find the
local procedures for encroachment cases.
So you're saying that another person can mess with his stuff and his
privacy, and he should just accept it because she's an old lady who
has been there for a long time.
What universe are you living in? Because it ain't this one.
Wow; This sounds familiar. I wouldn't blame you from the sound of your
frustration. My friend had a neighbor who was the same way until the
old man was sent to a care home. Does she have family? Chances are, if
she dies, her family would move in and would act the same way. People
sue others for the dumbest shit nowadays, why don't you sue her for the
damages her wooden siding structure caused? I agree that if the
untreated wooden siding is touching the soil that would attract
termites. If it was me who lived next to a mental-defective who fucked
with my motorcycle I would kill him or her. Mess with peoples personal
items then she deserves the name calling then; regardless of age or
mental state. All old people are like that sometimes; they "THINK" they
own the whole neighborhood or they are powerful in some way.
Also; Why does she mow the lawn everyday? Does her lesbian friend join
in on the vibration action? Take pictures of them in action, then put
the pictures in everyones mail boxes on the whole street!!! LOL
1 .... Whether or not she harbors trmites is absolutely None Of Your
2.......Whether the structure is on your property or not is legally
posible to determine.
3.......Whether it is on your property on not may also depend up on the
law known as "Sqatters
Rights." Any action you take in haste may prove very
4........It appears she has been there muchl onger than you so no doubt
knows whats legal.
5........So tread lightly until you know for sure where you stand.
6.........Last , but not least, Use some common sense.
Hardly follows. When we bought our house we had a neighbor actually
get her lawyer to write us threatening an injunction if we didn't
stop using "her" road to access our property. Never mind that the
road had been a public road since the land was first platted a
hundred years before, and was clearly signed as a public road.
Turns out that by simply claiming the road was hers, she had
successfully stopped other land owners from using it to access their
own properties, because people assumed she knew what she was talking
about and had the law on her side.
All that said, public obscenities wouldn't have helped our cause at
all, and would have left us looking like immature assholes.

Get your termite inspector to put in writing that the termites are from her
house, We will see how far you get with that? Then think about this,
someday you might reach 82 and you will most likely still be bitching about
the old lady that use to live next door to you. Lesbian there nothing like a
good Lesbian story , spices up a post especialy one were the poster makes
himself look like a A-Hole. Look at it this way you probley like the same
sexual stuff as a Lesibin, I know I do! Maybe were all (men) Lesbian?
I read the guys post and it sounded like a crazy rant to me. Both houses
have termite damage maybe. Do you really think this exterminator can say
where the termites started. Jack's termites may have damaged her carport.
She should sue.
Am I the only one that had a good laugh at this part?
Jack talks tough, but what kind of pussy would let a little old lady
delay construction for a week like this? Simple enough to handle.
Tell her to stay off your property. Tell the contractor and workmen
not to talk or listen to her. If she comes on your property, call the
police. If Jack can't handle this, termites are the least of his
As for the termite problem itself, the simplest remedy would be to have
the termite company put a maximum strength barrier treatment along the
side of his structure facing little old lady's carport. The only
other remedy would be to get expert witnesses that would testify in
court that the carport is infested with termites, they are creating a
problem with your house, and there is no effective way to deal with it
on your own property. If you can prove all that, which I think is
unlikely, then you could prevail in a lawsuit.
