Property disputes: where to draw the line

Buying or renting a home in Seattle can come with countless advantages: fresh Pacific Northwest air, lively city life and the excitement of settling into a new pad. Unfortunately, it can also come with difficult neighbors. One topic that causes dispute is determining property boundaries. Many neighbors experience stress and even potential danger in property disputes, but there are various regulations that help protect citizens from escalating neighbor disagreements.

Dispute over outdoor lights prompts new city ordinance

Neighbor disputes in Seattle often arise over tangible elements such as landscape features and property lines. Yet plenty of intangible intrusions can also occur between two properties, like excess noise or light. The trouble is that what some may view as a nuisance, others may view to be no big deal. Thus, each side in such a dispute often sticks to their proverbial guns, with both believing their own respective point of views to be right. Often, it takes the intervention of city officials to resolve such matters.
