My question involves real estate located in the State of: Michigan
My property ends where my neighbors driveway begins. Between the side of my house and his driveway, I have about 5 ft of property. My neighbors has a snow blower, and when he clears his driveway, he points the blower chute towards my property, not his. It's annoying enough that all of the snow from his drive is going into my front yard, but its even worse when he blows it into the side of my house. Snow is piled up from the foundation about 2ft up the side of the house, completely snowing in the egress windows. We do have a local ordinance that basically says a property owner can not move snow from his property onto property that he does not own.
Now, last summer we had a minor issue with water in the basement that was solved by improving downspouts and run off, and we've been doing what we can to keep snow and water from the foundation. If this snow melts and we incur water damage, is my neighbor possibly liable for this? At least partially? Thank you.
