Land-locked, NO Tours, and the TRUTH About WHY

Being land-locked here at Crazy Critters on November 12, 2020, was really difficult to understand. We reached out to the Lake County Sheriffs’ office for help on this day in hopes of finding support because when we asked the people to hold off erecting a fence across our entrance and exit they threatened us with harm.

Here is our post from November…

We requested them to ask these people to wait before they blocked our safe entrance since we had hired attorneys to resolve the situation. BOTH parties had retained attorney’s in order to come to some sort of term agreeable to all parties and those attorneys had already spoken and began negotiating.

Confused until now, Ken breaks down the entire thing here in this video.

In Florida, a fence can be considered a nuisance if its construction was motivated by malice, rather than a legitimate purpose such as preventing trespassing or vandalism.

According to NOLO… Spite fences are fences constructed purely to annoy a neighbor. They’re usually tall, ugly, or both. Spite fences are typically metal or wood, but they can also be made up of trees or shrubs.

Talk about nuisance… now their monstrosity of a SPITE FENCE has fallen onto our brand new perimeter fence!

We share in a Facebook post…

With all of the drama and the fact the facility is still land-locked here in the end of January 2021, we have zero tours scheduled and you can see in the video just how inconvenient it is for us all.

In fact, we can not even bring in large bales of hay for the animals other than two or three sting so we are having extra expenses. Added, we could not get our order of telephone poles delivered that we need to continue to build tortoise yards for the large sulcatas here at the facility.

Please consider coming out to the plant sale fundraiser to ensure the growth of the animal facility. We need all the money we can raise in case we have to pay the attorney more money to help resolve this issue. This is on top of the normal reasons we already host plant sales, like power costs, diets, and enrichment programs.

  1. So have you been using it for 7 years or more ? If so then they cant do this ! And on your deed does it give you right of egress and ingress?

    1. Thanks so much for seeing our post!

      Ken and I have used the easement for over 23 years and his mom has since 1962.

      The easement was never properly drawn out over the years as we sold off pieces of the farm in what is called land-lot splits here in Florida.

      Only selling to family until we sold by owner to the family of jerks next door.

      Then the family refused to carry homeowner insurance so we served a foreclosure or payoff note. They paid off the mortgage and now own the land.

      They themselves used the easement going straight for over ten years before land-locking us.

      Some people are just bullies.

      Thanks again for seeing the post and asking a great question!
