Can a neighbor build a mailbox on my property in AA County, MD?
Can a neighbor build a mailbox in the easement area of my property? I live on a corner lot. As you face my property, on the right, there is the main road. On my left, Neighbor (A) has a driveway ONLY, that allows them access to their parcel of land, set back behind me and Neighbor (B). Neighbor (A) has zero easement area in front of his driveway. The builder placed a mailbox for Neighbor (A) on my property, in the easement area. I was ok with this, trying to be a good neighbor. Now, 15 years later, this neighbor has become, “that neighbor”. You know, the one we all dread...always making noise, being mean, causing trouble, rude, scary, etc.
Neighbor (A) started to stack concrete blocks around the mailbox post. They are not permanent, just stacked. It started out as just one layer, three in the shape of a C. Then later another layer of three and now a third layer of three. It’s very unsightly and it’s on my property. We have HOA rules that need to be followed and these blocks are non-compliant. However, let’s get to my big problem...it’s my property and Neighbor (A) is basically building a new structure on it. He swears because it’s in the easement, that he can, that it’s allowed. He is not a rational man, he once referred to himself as “The King” in an email once.
Does anyone out there have advice, past experience with this? Can I move the blocks? I asked him to move them. I advised he was trespassing to even place the blocks, which could be considered dumping or abandoning property?
