My question involves real estate located in the State of: WV
I have a new survey. In the front of my house, my neighbor has a six foot privacy fence that comes 12" past my property line, and is attached to my house, which blocks all access to one side of my house. On this side of my house is my dryer vent and telephone jack/hookup which I have no access to. Also, where the fence touches my house, the siding has been cracked. My neighbor will not unlock the fence gate for me to get to the vent to clean it out, unless it is convenient for them (which is NEVER), and I see it as a major fire hazard. I also have not been able to get a telephone line in my house since the neighbor will not give me access to that side of my property. In the back of my house, my neighbor has a chain link fence which has been attached with nails to MY wooden fence. My fence is 12" away (on my side) from my property line, so to me it seems like their chain link fence is ALSO on my property. I was aware of all of this four years ago when I bought my house. I asked them to move the fences and they said no, but, the house was a forclosure and the bank didn't want to deal with the legalities, and the price was so good, that I bought the house anyways. Do I still have a legal right to make them take their fence down?
