Legal Question

Asked on: 7/30/13, 2:15 pm

hi i am renting a house in josephine county of oregon and a couple months back we had an internet satellite installed on the edge of our property. We had previously discussed in a friendly manor with our neighbor that he was unsure where the property line was. They day the satellite was installed the neighbor came outside and watched the two men put it in where he said it seemed close to his line but that was fine. He then proceeded to cut down a tree in front of the satellite (ON HIS PROPERTY, & *BLM LAND*) for our benefit of better service. Now he is claiming to be upset by the placement of the satellite which he then decided to have his property surveyed only to find that it IS on his property, in fact half of our yard is his property but is separated by a shed from the majority of his yard. The owners of this house have used the side yard for over 20 years where we now have two gardens currently growing veggies. SO, my first question is would this yard be considered an easement or possibly adversely possessed by the home owners? The neighbor is threatening to build a 6 foot fence through our garden on his new found property line and WITH OUT NOTICE cut our satellite line which they very well know is our means of communication as we have a phone line through magic jack which uses our internet. Not to mention i am an online student and have an online business. FINALLY we are currently in a state of emergency in southern oregon as there are 2,000 acre wildfires 8 miles away from our neighborhood. IS THIS LEGAL??? CAN I TAKE HIM TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT?
