Hi folks. I'm glad I found this forum. Maybe someone could help me out.
My neighbor has a motorboat and trailer. When he first got it, he parked it on a parking pad on his property behind his twin home. About 4 months after getting the boat, he decided to build a two car garage at the back of his property where the parking pad was.
When he was about to begin building the garage, he asked me if I'd mind him parking the boat behind my property on the "proposed alley" or I guess now just easement. I didn't have a problem as I thought he mentioned it would be temporary.
A year later the boat remains. I really didn't mind (although always questioned the legallity of it). I approached him the other day about moving the boat for two different projects I wanted to do, and would be helpful if we could drive work trucks right into our back yard. When I asked about the second one, he became nasty and said that he wasn't moving the boat permanently. This wasn't what I asked him, but now that I see that he will cause me a great deal of difficulty, I do want the boat gone.
Does anyone have a clue as to what my rights are. Again, the boat is parked not on my official property, but on the "proposed alley" or "easement" behind my house. Can people park things there? If so, can anyone do it anywhere? Does the homeowner have rights to the easement since it was never finished into an alley? Any kind of advice would be great!!!
