Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: My Mother is in a nursing home and remains the owner of her former home. That property has a garage and a neighbour has grown a ficus creeper on the brick wall that forms a boundary. The neighbour refuses to clear the aggressive creeper from the roof and gutters of the garage and now the creeper is growing across the face of the garage, inside the garage and down the opposite side of the garage onto the front verandah of the house I have asked her to pay for removal and she has refused!. what can I do!
JA: What state/territory is the owner in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Suburban Melbourne Victoria
JA: What steps has the owner taken so far?
Customer: She says it was trimmed in March and that she cannot afford to undertake the work needed
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: The disputed property is not owned by the person living in the home but has a "life tenancy" maybe I need to be in contact with the property owner but I do not have those details
