My question involves an easement in the state of: Iowa
My neighbors water meter and a shut off valve is in my house in the basement. I sent them formal notice and gave them 4 months to move water line. They refused. I turned off the water. (live in a town of 600) The owner of the house brought the sheriff and the very agressive, bullying mayor and threatened to send me to jail if I did not turn the water back on. Mayor said he would shut off my water. Isn't this my property? My understanding is that if the neighbors pipe breaks and damages my basement or foundation my insurance will not cover it because it is not my water line. Who pays for this??
