“Dear PoPville,

The owners of the house next door do not maintain it at all. In particular, when there are heavy rain, they let their basement get flooded and do not do anything about it. The sitting water is leaking into our house. We have cleaned their drain for them, talked to them, but it serves no purpose. We now have mold in our house.

Does anyone know how to handle this? Do we file a complaint? With whom? Do we talk to a lawyer? Specific recommendations welcome! We moved out of the country three days ago and dialogue, which has never worked, is not really an option any more!”
