Neighbours

Noise travels, branches from trees reach over property lines, smoke and other substances - like pesticides - can be carried on the wind, garbage and junk can be unsightly or dangerous and even bright lights can impact your neighbours. These are all common sources of irritation between neighbours. Knowing what the rules are and some options for resolving disputes can help ensure you have good neighbour relationships.

Good Neighbours

Many things that you do in your own yard or house do not stop at your property line. And, if you have neighbours, this can lead to problems. Understanding activities that can be a source of conflict and knowing about options to resolve disputes can help.

Noise FAQ's

Noisy neighbours can make it hard to work, sleep and do other things in and around your home. Whether you are the one hearing the noise or the one making noise there are some guidelines about what noise is acceptable.

Pets

Many communities have rules about pets from licensing requirements to restrictions on the number or species of pets that can be kept.

Trees

Who has the right to trim or cut down a tree can be a source of friction between neighbours.

House Parties

Knowing your responsibility when you decide to host a party can prevent trouble later.

PLEA can provide you with information to help you understand many legal matters you, a family member or friend may be facing.
