Neighbors learn about code enforcement, nuisance laws at NRC's "Good Neighbor" Law Workshop
Did you miss last week's "Good Neighbor" Law workshop? We talked a little about the "Good Samaritan" statute, a state law that exempts neighbors from trespassing when landscaping a vacant property. See the ABC57 story on the workshop
, or learn more about the Good Samaritan statute in the links below.
Thanks again to Ann Carol Nash from Halpin Slagh PC, Attorneys at Law
