I live in a rented townhouse in Dupont that is right behind a restaurant and I’m having some serious problems with the owner. He seems to not realize my property, although rented, is not his. He parks his car in my parking space whenever mine isn’t there; he puts the smelly garbage from his restaurant in my trash cans (and trust me, bloody fish wrappers are VERY smelly and messy); and I often find him on my back porch, which he climbs up onto to access the roof of his unit. Whenever I try to talk to him, he pretends not to understand me. What’s the recourse for something like this? It doesn’t seem serious enough to get the police involved, but I’m tired of having to go into his restaurant to yell at him in front of his customers to move his car.”
