Re: Neighbors satelite dish is overhanging on my roof

This seems rather petty, since it is not blocking or otherwise causing harm to your property or getting in the way. You must already have a neighbor war going on with this guy, and this is just the next volley?

Petty only begins to cover this - totally off the scale petty

People like the op make me thankful I have a life and am blessed with an assortment of wonderful friends and neighbors

None of us are near perfect yet we find a way to just along

I suspect the solution can be found in quiet contemplation and counting ones blessings.....

this is a Rowehome all of the white roof that belongs to my property. The the coax cable is tacked along the ridge of the roof on their side with plastic cable clips.
my neighbors also has Direct tv.
The problem is it is in line with my antenna for my over the air DTV and blocking my signal. when it was put in i can no longer to recieve the channels that are over the air. There are 4 over the air tv stations that has older tv shows on that I watch that cannot get on cable. there is already a war over my Wi-Fi
they want access to my internet

Those that live in glass houses ....

Your geto roll-roofing job is rolled onto the neighbors metal roofing and has in the picture over 20 nails into the neighbors roof, that's a far more serious issue than a dish that that simply casts a shadow on your roof. The neighbor can come after you for some big bucks ...

Yes, the rolled roof should have been tucked under the metal and then capped.

Sooner or later that ridge is going to leak again because it was not done properly. It should have been done like I mentioned above. As for your neighbors not doing necessary repairs they can be held liable. If you can't get along I would sell even if I had to take a loss and then never buy into a duplex again.

That's libel to claim as such!
Anyway I'm not sure there is such a thing as a half-ridge, meaning the ridge (In this case, it's just not there) needs to be paid by both owners.

and it's spelled "liable".

As for the wifi, cmon dude, just get WPA2 AES security and you're done.

And the HD OTA antenna, I'm surprised a small dish blocks channels of your antenna. And it's not even because it's floating above your roof! It's just an alignment thing. That dish could be well over your neighbor's side and still block your signal if placed properly.

Is it one of those cheap little power boosted plastic antennas? Get a real aerial, you'll get more channels than you thought existed.

I'm surprised no one has asked why this apparently bothers you so much.

That said, I know if a neighbor's tree overhangs onto one's property, you're legally allowed to cut the branches. If I were your neighbor, I'd tell you that you don't own the "air" above your home...

yep, whatever extends onto your property, in this case, at least the LNB. it's probably better in this case to just mount his OTA antenna a few feet higher, so this dish don't interfere.

the Roof is not finished yet I had to have it replaced quickly before I had a bad storm.

I have my Wi-Fi secured with WPA2/aes.

It is verry hard to communicate with my Neighbors they don't speak english verry well

the thing with the Wi-Fi that has been going on since 2003
they rather not pay for internet, they want it for free.

The last one to get the roof work done would have to pay for the capping of the ridge. As it is now, it is not done correctly.

Yeah, I guess it's been quite some time since I've had to spew legal jargon.

Reminds me of a time years ago when I installed a yagi on the side of a customers building to get service for Internet.

The yagi was almost six feet long and it overhung an ally which Apperantly was "owned" by the neighbors. They bitched and threatened to sue the customer of ours so I had to go out and move it. Never mind it took me mos of the day to anchor it with tapcons at the top of a 28 foot extension ladder.

Jerk.

the worst part about it, a subcontrator for dish installed it right after my roof was replaced. their other dish they have on the 3rd floor the base of that one looks like a tarball landed on the base of the direct tv dish

My brother had a run-in with some Dish Network idiots about a year ago. My brother cancelled the service and the idiot that came out to remove the dish dropped his ladder on my brother's car. He left without saying a word but a neighbor was a witness. It took months to get reimbursed. What's really messed up is he had to go to court 50 miles away because that's where the company is based. I always thought that where the accident takes place has jurisdiction but I guess I was wrong.

There is no way that a dish of that diameter is blocking your OTA broadcast reception (unless the reception is EXTREMELY weak to begin with). OTA is NOT a line of sight type of broadcast. I'm surprised the antenna experts here haven't chimed in yet.

If it really is a problem, your best course of action is to continue your assault on Dish Network. While petty, your complaint is likely legally sound. Demand to speak to a supervisor (politely but firmly). Suggest to them that you will retain a lawyer if they do not remedy the situation to your satisfaction. That should get them moving.
