Experienced Attorneys to Help Resolve Nuisance and Trespass on Your Property
For decades, Blado Kiger Bolan, P.S., has represented individuals and businesses in the Pacific Northwest in every facet of real estate and property law matters. Our real estate attorneys handle much more than just the purchase and sale of homes and buildings.
For example, we assist and advise clients with an entire host of land use issues, including trespass and nuisance matters. Our attorneys have handled several nuisance and trespass cases in state and federal courts, as well as before administrative agencies.
Nuisance and Trespass: More than Just Loud Neighbors
With regard to nuisance and trespass, many people envision neighbors blaring loud music at all hours of the night or someone sneaking onto another person’s property without permission. These are all examples of nuisance and trespass – and they are issues that we handle.
However, both nuisance and trespass encompass so many more actions that our clients regularly face. In fact, acts of trespass and nuisance may include the following:
- Pollution encroaching onto your land (including noise pollution and odors)
- Illegal dumping of trash, cars, chemicals, and other things onto your property
- Dirt and soil erosion from another location that has washed onto your property
Essentially, when an individual, business, or even the government disrupts your enjoyment and use of your property by the way they use their property, you may have a valid claim for nuisance and/or trespass.
Nuisance v. Trespass
In property law, nuisance and trespass are terms with similar but different legal definitions. They both involve the interference of someone’s property, but “nuisance” refers to the interference of one’s property in any way. “Trespass,” on the other hand, refers to the physical, unlawful, and intentional invasion of one’s property.
If you believe an individual or entity has committed a nuisance and/or trespass on your land, you should seek the legal assistance of a reputable real estate attorney who has experience navigating the nuances of property law.
Matters We Handle and Services We Provide
As mentioned, trespass and nuisance actions affect our clients in many ways; some of the services that we provide in this area of law include the following:
