Getanswers answerstotoyour legal questions about realreal estate ...... Get legal questions about estate Email your questions to and we’ll get them answered

the question: I live in a small community that does not have a Home Owners Association. There's a community pond that overflows during heavy rain and floods only my property. Is there something I can do to force the other homeowners to help pay for repairs to stop the flooding?

the answer: This is hard to answer without the benefit of reviewing title documents. Assuming there are no easements or maintenances provisions in the other property owners deeds you may very well have to deal with the issue yourself. In that you say ìCommunity Pondî that sounds like the other property owners may have rights to use the pond and if that is the case it would seem rational that they should then join in an agreement to maintain the pond. If the other property owners do have rights and refuse to do so you should see an attorney about your options in forcing them to help or terminating their rights.

How to green your home and garden (StatePoint) Going green at home doesn’t have to turn your life upside down. There are simple measures you can take in your kitchen and garden to run a planet-friendly home. Reduce Waste Ensure your kitchen is properly outfitted with labeled paper and plastic recycling bins. Keep these receptacles handy to encourage your family and guests to make use of them. Take your waste reduction a step further by setting up a bin for food scraps, which you can add to your yard trimmings. Composting creates a natural fertilizer that’s makes a planet-friendly alternative to the chemical variety. By recycling and composting, you can join the ranks of Americans reducing the waste they send to the landfill. In fact, recycling and composting prevented 86.9 million tons of materials from being disposed in 2011 in the United States, up from 15 million tons in 1980, according to government estimates. Protect Wildlife You may think of your yard as “yours,” but you are actually sharing the space with furry creatures, insects and birds. Habitat destruction and loss, as well other manmade and natural threats, put beautiful species like humming birds at risk. Make your garden a safe haven with bird feeders and by planting native, sustentative shrubs, trees and flowers. Unfortunately, bird to building collisions,

particularly with windows, are estimated to kill between 100 million and 1 billion birds in the United States alone, according to a new report from the Cooper Ornithological Society. Ensure the safety of your airborne visitors by applying static-cling decals to your windows, which helps birds detect glass, thereby avoiding injury or death. Decals from WindowAlert, for example, rely on special ultraviolet-reflecting coating that looks like etched glass to humans, but is quite visible to birds, and add a decorative appearance to your home. The coating can fade over time, so remember to replace decals every six to nine months. More information can be found at

Eat Local Source your food locally to reduce your carbon footprint. If possible, buy local, in-season fruits and vegetables that didn’t have to travel the world to reach your plate. And while flowers are beautiful to look at -and the right ones can provide nectar for pollinating insects and birds -- consider turning at least part of your garden into a space for herbs and vegetables to grow. When dinner comes from your own back yard, it means fresher produce that’s good for your family, and good for the planet. Don’t just enjoy nature this season, take care of it. With a few small tweaks, it isn’t hard to run your home more sustainably.

(StatePoint) Protecting dogs from fleas and ticks is an important part of responsible pet care and this season shines a light on the prevention of Lyme disease in dogs. Distressing and harmful for your pet, parasites can cause diseases that affect you and your family. Flea bites can cause skin disorders, infections and allergies, and spread tapeworms. And bacteria spread from infected tick bites can cause Lyme disease, a bacterial infection that can affect humans, dogs and cats. Lyme disease is characterized by lameness, swollen joints and fever. Ticks carrying Lyme disease don’t discriminate, so it is imperative to take a proactive stance in protecting not only your pet, but your family from this debilitating disease. Whether you suspect your pet is besieged by pests or you wish to prevent the problem in the first place, experts identify three clear steps to take -- treating your pet, treating your home and treating your yard -- in that order. “The fleas and ticks on your dog are a small component of your concern,” says Caryn Stichler, vice president of marketing at Sergeants Pet Care Products. “Fleas and their eggs can live out-

Protect your pets from fleas and ticks side in grass, soil and crevices in sidewalks, and inside on rugs, carpets, floor cracks and bedding. Treat your pet first and foremost and then the animal’s environment.” Fleas and ticks multiply at an alarming rate. So act quickly this flea and tick season: Treat the Pet The first step is to apply a preventative treatment on your dog, that contains fipronil, the number one vet-recommended active ingredient for killing fleas, ticks, chewing lice -helping to keep Lyme disease-carrying ticks at bay. It also contains an Insect Growth Regulator that kills flea eggs and stops the rein-

festation cycle. The topical can be found at grocery, mass and drug retailers nationwide. Treat the Home “Washing pet bedding, vacuuming carpets and treating with household insecticide sprays, powders and foggers are good first steps to ridding your home of fleas and preventing infestations,” says Stichler. Use a spray that’s pet friendly and designed to reach the hiding places of fleas -- rugs, carpets, drapes and upholstery. Treat the Yard Your yard should be a safe zone for pets to play, not a place to pick up parasites. Ticks,

which are usually dark brown or black, have pincers and can be spotted by the naked eye. Fleas are tiny, brown insects and can be difficult to spot. So inspect your yard wearing a pair of long white socks. Secure the infested socks in a plastic bag and throw them away. Now spray your yard and around the foundation of your home to kill flea populations lurking outside. When it comes to the health of your pet and your family, be proactive. Clean your pet, home and yard regularly and use treatments year round to kill pests and prevent infestation.
