PS. This garage is designed with a built in ramp to glide out (backout) the car to the bridge so that you don't have to start the engine inside the "garage".
Jimmy, let me say that all americans are not like that, of course. Seems to be a common thread here from foreigners that we all think and act the same. Truth is there are over 350 million of us from all around the world and we act and think differently. Some from more homogenious countries may want to map that onto the US, but it isn't so. The range of opinion here really does span the spectrum.
Now as regards this guys neighbors. This is expected. The area he lives in is known for putting on a free wheeling, liberal sixties mentality. But i have found in my limited contact with people that live in that area that they are some of the most vicious, money grubbing a-holes i have ever met. Suing your neighbor in LA (rich, white LA) is as common as taking out your trash. I had one acquaintance i was visiting years ago in the hills that was sitting with me in their house, eating a sprout sandwhich, smoking weed and telling me she was a bodhisatva. Then she proceeded to tell me how she was suing her next door neighbor for some construction and her father had sued her over a real estate deal and they don't talk anymore. Superficially laid back is how i describe them.
The real problem with this story is they don't give you all the facts. The neighbors mention that he was tearing up the property for 5 years. That is a little insight to what is really happening. and, of course, the owner will now sue LA. Truth is, we don't know anything about this dispute and the neighbors may have had it with this guy. Who knows?
In conclusion, please don't let this sensational story out of LaLa land put a bad taste in your mouth about owning property in the US. Although you never know about your neighbors wherever you may move, the US has a pretty strong property rights history. In fact, our nation was pretty much founded on the proposition.
