Trespass and other Interference with Property Rights

Trespassing involves entering another person’s property without permission and without being legally authorized and causing any damage, even if it’s slight. Any interference with the owner’s use of the property is enough to show damage and can form the basis for a lawsuit against the trespasser. Trespass and interference with property rights can include putting up a fence on someone’s property or having a roof that hangs over a neighbor’s property or having garbage on a piece of real estate you don’t own.
