Understanding property easements

When you are looking to buy a home in Washington State, it can be very easy to get focused on the particulars of the home that you enjoy and make sure you pay the price that you feel is reasonable and good for you. While these things are important, it is also vital that you carefully review some of the other details that may have implications for the ultimate enjoyment or experience of your new home. The existence of an easement is one of these details.

When a neighbor's unruly pet won't pipe down

Dogs are humans' best friends, but not when an irritated neighbor is involved. Confrontations can be difficult to initiate -- especially when the issue stems from a nearby homeowner -- but nevertheless are the answer for some Seattle residents who simply want peace of mind. Many might assume that most neighbor disputes lead to little change, but some situations reach the point of legal concern.

What falls under the umbrella of property disputes?

In Seattle, as residents like you know, there isn't a whole lot of elbow room. With living quarters packed relatively close together, the possibility of property disputes may rise. Riach Gese Jacobs, PLLC, works to provide people like you with the information you need to know what could be considered a property dispute.

Crossing the line: who wins in a property dispute?

Home is where the peace and quiet is -- that is the motto for most Seattle dwellers, at least. Yet when a neighbor takes on another unruly pet or frequently hosts band practice at midnight, tensions can inevitably run high. When those tensions involve more complex issues, including disputes over property lines, the routes to solutions can appear all the more challenging.

When most Seattle neighbors have disputes, tensions generally involve situations such as noisy pets or unsightly yards. Regardless of what issue is at hand, direct paths to resolution can often seem limited. But no one desires a negative atmosphere right outside their doorstep, so many homeowners turn to easing the tension themselves. 

Neighbor disputes: is there a solution?

Confrontations and disagreements are two experiences most Seattle residents would prefer to avoid. But what if such incidents are simply unavoidable? The background noise of city life is one that is typically ignored, yet there are other distractions that can make doing so especially difficult. As with most states, Washington generally cannot become involved in neighbor disputes. However, there are ways to to minimize such predicaments that can help individuals avoid the involvement of a third party altogether.

Noisy dogs and residents' rights

"Home Sweet Home" is the well-known phrase to describe a place of residence in America, but not when neighbors surrounding that residence make a home unbearable. Loud neighbors in Seattle not only disrupt daily life, but can also negatively impact one's emotional and physical wellbeing.
