Building on Exclusive Easement
What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? California
Hi, I am a first time homeowner when I purchased my house 4 years ago. Shortly after, my neighbor build a short wall and a concrete pathway over a small strip of a shared front lawn which I have exclusive easement for as prescribed in the CC&R without my permission. What is my legal rights in this situation? Can I order them remove it? If I don't do anything, do I lose the easement because of the "hostile takeover"?
Furthermore, I just received a "Cease and Desist" letter from my neighbor complaining that "extraordinary high amount of water" is being sprayed onto their property and is causing damage. Upon my inspection, the sprinkler is spraying on that new concrete path which was originally a part of my lawn to start with! Any recommendation on how I should reply to this "Cease and Desist" letter? I really need help on this. Thanks a lot.
