Your home is where you go to get away from the world. That is why the law ensures that you can get maximum enjoyment from your property – provided it doesn’t encroach on anyone else’s rights.
There are a various laws that deal with all the possible issues that can cause problems between neighbours. For instance – if a neighbour is making a lot of noise on a regular basis (Noise Nuisance), it is a different case than if he makes a racket once-off (Disturbing Noise). As they say, good fences make good neighbours, so be careful not to encroach onto your neighbour’s property. Similarly, if a branch from your neighbour’s tree hangs into your yard, and it is infringing on the use of your property, or causing damage to your property, you may ask him to cut it down first. If he unreasonably refuses to do so, you may cut off the offending branch of the tree yourself. Just make sure you don’t damage the tree in such a way that it can fall over or die.
Although there are many laws governing neighbours, it all comes down to being considerate of those who live around you.
