Your Rights When Neighbor's Property Is Nuisance
WEST CARROLLTON -- High grass, chipped paint, trash, household items piled high, neighbors living without their utilities turned on. If it is in your neighborhood and you don't like it, you can stop it.
"It's kind of aggravating to know that we've got a nice house and the others are bringing ours down because they're all dilapidated," said T.J. Sorg, who lives in West Carrollton.
"Every citizen has a right to protect their property values. And that's basically exactly what property maintenance is for to help maintain the property values in the city," said Carl Enterman, the West Carrollton Code Enforcement officer, who tries to do this one complaint at a time.
He says most cities and towns work in a similar way; just find your code or housing inspection office.
"People will call us and lodge the complaint. The majority of the time, they can stay anonymous, which is fine with us. If it's something we've not seen, we like to know about it, so we can address it," said Enterman, who says they work with the homeowners to fix the property, and they usually comply. If not, the owners are given legal notice and a certain amount of time to fix it. With no response, it ends up in court.
When it comes to a public health issue such as excessive mold or perhaps a bed bug infestation, that's when Public Health Dayton Montgomery County gets involved.
When a property becomes such a nuisance, it is torn down.
"Now they've got an open lot, they can build a nice house," said Sorg.
"A lot of people don't even realize this department exists. Not just in our city, but in a lot of cities. We're there to help," said Enterman.
