What legal actions can we take to keep neighbors off of our property who trespass our yard? 9 Answers as of April 01, 2013
I have neighbors that travel through my yard on a weekly basis to get to the other side. My husband has spoken with the man of the house last year and asked him to stop but he and his family continue to pass through.

These are types of cases that typically are handled by a local magistrate. If neighbors continue to trespass onto your property you could file a complaint with the local magistrate.

For starters, put up a no trespassing sign. Then if they continue to trespass, file a complaint with the police department. That should solve the problem.

Call the police. In Nevada we have the Neighborhood Justice, which is an organization that helps people mediate issues.

He spoke with him last year. Speak with him again. Call him up everytime they go through. If you are home when they come through, go out there and tell them they are not allowed to travel through your yard. Put up "No Tresspassing" signs. If that doesn't work, put up a fence.
