ENGLEWOOD – And now the age-old favorite question: “Who is responsible if your neighbor’s tree falls on your property?”
The general rule is that unless the tree owner knew that the tree was unsafe, he is not responsible. The general rule throughout the United States is that if a tree limb or a tree root protrudes on a neighbor’s property, that neighbor has the right to exercise self-help – i.e. the offending root or limb can be cut off. But just a word to the wise, discuss your intentions with the neighbor before cutting the branches off.
ENGLEWOOD – OK, so Body Shaping Fitness has been open for about six months. Englewood’s newest health club will hold its official Open House and Grand Opening celebration from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 29.
