Hi There,

If after you have asked them politely and explained that you are going to be putting your house up for sale and they are hurting the value, they have not complied, than I would ask again and explain to them that you plan to make this call, giving them an opportunity to correct it. If you are still unsuccessful and you feel that they are violating some kind of code or they could be causing some unsafe or environmental problem, than of course it’s ok. Best of luck to you! It sounds like you’ve got your hands full!
