New Neighbours and now my problems start
Good day everyone. Hoping that I am posting in the correct forum, if not my apologies.
I have lived in this house 33 years and had our 7th neighbour move in about 2.5 years ago who started renovating the house and it is still under renovations to this day. I have put up with jack hammering and all kinds of noise trying to be a good neighbour, but the latest project has me really worried. The only time they are really friendly is when they need a favor to do something otherwise they do not talk to me (mostly his wife).
When we bought our house the neighbour and my husband (who passed away 5 years ago), graded/sloped the land in between the houses so the water would run off and we would not get flooding in the basement. Only on 2 occasions did we get a bit of water in the basement when there was heavy rain during the winter when the ground was frozen. Everything was fine all these years until our newest neighbour moved in and decided to put in a walkway right against his house. Now that the walkway is in I see that it is not sloping and is much higher then my stone walkway and I am concerned that come this spring if and when we have heavy rain and the ground is frozen I will get flooding in the basement.
Are my young new neighbours trying to take advantage of this old widow? Your suggestions would be appreciated..thank you.
