Can I Hold My Neighbor Liable for Damaging My Property?

My neighbor has a very large tree in her yard and she has allowed the tree roots to spread under my carport causing it to bulge and tilt to one side. What can I do to get her to pay damages to my carport. The roots from her tree are running into my waterline also causing problems with backups.

You will need to check the laws in your area, but generally if a tree belongs to one neighbor, that person is responsible for damage caused by it. You should try talking with your neighbor first, to see if you can work out an agreement, but failing that I would recommend you speak with a local real estate attorney, who can go over all your options.
