I own a park and the previous owner subdivided off a lot and sold it. However the private lot has park water and sewer and I'm tired of paying the bills and messing with collections and maintenance of his utility connections. What should I do? The private lot/home is next to the city road and can easily hook up to private utilities but the owner refuses to do so. Should I dig down on my property and cut the water line and cap it? They are threatening to take me to court if I refuse to allow them to continue using my utilities. There is no written agreement or anything between the previous owner and the owner of the private lot.
