A panicked 911 call out of Washington state this month highlights the importance of seeking legal representation in property disputes before they get out of hand. As many residents here in Michigan may remember, the call to 911 dispatchers came just days ago from a man who explained that his neighbor was demolishing his home with a bulldozer. In a matter of minutes, the 51-year-old man in the bulldozer had demolished four of his neighbors' homes and even destroyed one neighbor's truck.
An easement is generally described as a nonpossessory interest in another person's land usually stemming from a want or need to use someone else's land for which the other person does not have ownership. Basically, an easement allows the holder to use the property, but prevents them from excluding others from the land.
If there is one thing that the people of Michigan are sick of right now it's the recent flood of political ads that seem to have taken over the airwaves. Over the past few decades the once "vote for me, I'm the right choice" ads have given way to smear campaigns that seem to be more concerned with slinging mud rather than focusing on making change happen.
