    Angry Hazardous Rocks at Edge of Driveway by Property Line

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: Delaware

    My neighbor's property borders my driveway and they have placed large rocks within a few inches of the edge. Every time someone enters my driveway we run the risk of our car sustaining damage. I have hit them as well as any friends and family who dare to enter. When they get hit, the rocks shift a little and soon after the owner moves them back. He's even put a piece of rebar in the ground to prevent them moving. I have asked them to remove the rocks and replace with something flat (to prevent tires running over the corner of grass) and they ignored me. Is there a law about encroachment or creating a hazardous condition? Friends whose car sustained damage have threatened to sue. What can be done?

    Ar these rocks on your neighbor's property? If they are you could learn to drive and not run into things on someone else's property.

    They were likely put there because you and friends were driving in his yard doing damage.

    Despite the previous response you need to know if the rocks are on your neighbor's property or on yours. If on the neighbor's, you don't have much recourse. You and your friends will have to take care driving. The only way to know for sure is to have a survey done .

    You did ask if the rocks were on the neighbor's property. But you offered no advice. Then you posted the above quote which I think was uncalled for. I think you may agree.

    Bud, who died and left you in charge of what constitutes a valid post? When did you get appointed the dictator of what people are allowed to say?

    I asked the question and gave the OP the best advice available if the answer to the question is yes.

    Right back at you. You got a problem? Tell me what it is or shut up. Nobody left me in charge the same as nobody left you in charge.
