Neighbor Law

Nuisance Reporting

Most nuisance reporting should be directed to the local city to address. Some examples dealt with in City Ordinances are Old or Junk Vehicles, Vacant Buildings, Snow Removal and Long Grass. In addition, to report any housing code violation, contact the city where the violation is occurring.

Minnesota Fire Code

The State Fire Marshal regulates the excess or hazardous storage in dwellings.

Get Help


In our positions as librarians, not lawyers, we can suggest resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file) or legal opinions (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts). To do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law. Even though we try to suggest materials that will be of help, more research is often required to find a complete and correct answer. For many questions, the best answer may be to consult an attorney.
