Guttenberg addresses "nuisance” properties

By Shelia Tomkins

Being a property owner comes with both rights and responsibilities. When one person's use of their property interferes with their neighbors' enjoyment, health or safety, nuisance laws can be called into effect to deal with problems.

In legal terms, a nuisance is an activity or physical condition that results in annoyance, inconvenience, discomfort, or injury to another person or to the public.
