So I have been remodeling my little house this past year and have been just OK with my neighbor. I live in a small gated community and there is an association that is big on rules. I want to get along with these people but it can be a challenge. The houses are free standing and considered an actual house (not condo) but our back house wall makes up two walls of the neighbors back yard court. She has a new boyfriend living with her and he is a gardener. This 50 something couple has apparently planted many plants including a fair amount of ivy on our back wall. I know this because I was fixing the roof and saw it and it can also be seen from the street. it is against the rules to grow/attach anything to a neighbors wall. My parents first house was damaged by a neighbors ivy...wall and roof. So I am very concerned about letting it go. I could talk to her directly about the problem but I don't see a compromise. I want it off the wall. So that leaves me with going to the association. I hate that this neighbor has put me in this position but she didn't seem to care enough to ask me when planting. What do you guys think is the best call in this situation?
