What is light trespass?

There are a lot of ways that your neighbor can impact your quality of life. Maybe they refuse to maintain their property, bringing your property value down. Maybe they built a fence that is so tall it breaks local regulations and makes you feel enclosed in your own yard. Maybe they don't agree with you on where the boundaries are, and they think that your land actually belongs to them.

Have a bad neighbor? These tips can help

Unfortunately, you cannot pick your neighbors. You may get a bad neighbor who constantly looks for ways to aggravate you or who actually infringes on your rights. Maybe they use your property without permission, build structures too close to the property line or start a dispute about where that line even is.

Neighbors may not know where the property lines are

The whole idea of getting into a property line dispute with your neighbor may seem a bit preposterous to you. After all, those lines are well defined, right? If they clearly cross the line with any structure — a shed, a fence, a deck, etc. — then they are encroaching on your property. That's not really a point they can contest, in your mind.

What is a property line dispute?

Seattle residents like you share relatively close quarters with one another. There are a large amount of people in a relatively small space and houses tend to be built very close to one another. Unfortunately, this means that some people may run into property line disputes with their neighbors.

Common dispute causes in a neighborhood

Whether you live in a neighborhood in Washington State that is governed by a homeowners association or not, you may have heard some of your neighbors discuss issues with other homeowners that they are unhappy about. You might even have a gripe about a neighbor of your own. While it might be difficult to consider, you may even be doing something unknowingly that offends one of your neighbors.
