Last Friday DH comes home and asks why there is a cable up in our backyard. I had no clue. I didn't put a cable up. But apparently a neighbor down the street put it up claiming that half of our backyard is his. DH and I are ticked! This guy did NOT get a surveyor. He just measured things out according to his (outdated) deed. The land was purchased in 2005, our house was built in 2006 and we bought it and moved in May 2007. Anyway, so now we have to get a surveyor which is gonna cost quite a bit. One guy gave me quote for $650 and my mom is going to talk to another guy and get a quote from him (he charges $85 per hour). So the only way to prove that we own the property behind the neighbor in the 1st pic is to get everything surveyed by a professional. And I can't wait to prove this idiot wrong. Here are some pics that show just how much of our property he is trying to claim.
You can kinda see the cable going through the middle of the pic. That is literally right off of our sidewalk. Our property ends somewhere past the tree that you see on the right. We're not exactly sure where though. But you can see where the grass gets taller is how far my DH mows it. This guy is ridiculous! That's literally half of our backyard. And no, all that junk around the tree is not ours. It belongs to our neighbors.
I can step off of our sidewalk and touch the cable.
The private property sign in front of the electricity pole is ours but the one hanging from the cable is the one the guy put up. His cable touches the pole then angles in toward our yard even more. Enough so that it includes my DD's tomato plant that her and DH planted last week.
And here is another pic to give a good idea of our yard. There's still a big chunk to the left I didn't take a pic of though. But hopefully by the end of the week we will have this mess settled. But I just had to vent because I feel like I'm going to explode.
