Comcast entering yard without permission Comcast entering yard without permission self. So both Comcast and Centurylink have entered my back yard without my permission this past month. Located in Colorado. We apparently have a cable box that is used by the neighbors, and they need access to it.

They said that by law they do not have to tell us in advance. We have dogs big dogs that could get us a lawsuit I'm afraid if they happened to do it when the dogs were outside.

Or my dogs could get out and be lost if they don't shut the gates right. First question is how can I stop this? Either stop them from coming into the yard or protect myself from a lawsuit? Are 'beware of dogs' signs any good from a law perspective? Second question, is cable classified as a utility or not? I can Compayn if the city needed access to my yard for water or sewer which are 'utilities'.

But why can a private company openly trespass on my property? Also it seems messed up that they can Cable Company Digging In My Yard lumped into utilities when it suits their business but not when it suits consumers. My question now that I know Cable Company Digging In My Yard apparently do have the law on their sideis how can I protect myself from a lawsuit?

How can I get them and all other companies who apparently have a right to my yard to come to my door and ask first? You can certainly put up a sign requesting that they knock on the dog first but you cannot restrict their access to the yard. If your dogs are a concern you need to keep them contained in a way that does not interfere with the easement. Help me understand how I can do this?

Do I need to have my dogs inside at all times in the event that India Gate Basmati Rice Company day a company will come into my yard?

It's hard to believe that's my only avenue. My dogs are not mean, but I'm not sure what they might have done if a strange person was in our back yard without us knowing and we let them out. Surely there's a way for me to protect myself.

Can we request them move the utility box that they need access to? Can a simple no trespassing sing make them at least ask first? You can do absolutely nothing to interfere with the easement. No locks. A no trespassing sign is meaningless as they're not trespassing. They have access rights attached to the Yadr of your property. Your options are to keep your animals inside, keep them supervised or build a new fence that is completely off the easement.

If your dogs bite someone who is using a valid easement you are likely to be sued. They have the right to be on that property. They are not trespassing, so a no trespassing sign would not apply to them. You can request whatever you want but legally they own a right of access and do not have to comply. But technically speaking, I can 'restrict' their access by putting locks on my gates and leaving my dogs out there barking right?

They then can come to my door and ask me to let them in and if I refuse, then they can have law Www Ford Motor Company Com come and make me.

They do apparently and begrudgingly have the upper hand according to the law, but I can still restrict them enough to cause them to come and ask me Compaany let them in. I'm not going to be a dick and make them call the cops each time, but coming to the front door and asking to be let into the yard would make me happy.

They don't owe you Cable Company Digging In My Yard. If you put a lock on it expect an injunction ordering you to remove it.

Move your fence so that the box is no longer contained in it, or build Diggiing fence that separates the part of the yard they need access to from the part you keep the dogs in. That would keep your dogs safe. Make sure any fence gives the box the required clearance.

This is an easy solution. Thank you. I just built a fence and purposely went around the box. It will be easier for me to make the fence straight, and it will be in an unused corner. I will also check and see how aCble space Yrad need to leave around it for working. The way it sits, I can probably leave 8 feet around it without it impacting my use of our yard.

Does anyone know how I can find out which part s of my Cable Company Digging In My Yard have this appeasement? And lastly, does the box need to be accessible by a gate? Or can they reasonably be asked to hop a small chain-link fence to get at it?

That will show you where the utility providers may require access going forward, so you can plan accordingly. You can also call the cable company and explain the situation with the dogs, try to work with them on it. Their employees or contractors go into hundreds of backyards every day so it's not like dogs being there is a new thing to them. I get why you're worried but start by talking to them first. This seems like a strange approach though.

We don't have an account with centurylink, so how would I call them in advance? How many other companies have access to my yard that I'm unaware of and do not do any business with? When we did try and IIn them to come back another time they got confrontational and resorted to yelling and demanding we let them in.

Two issues: yM dog bite. Not clear if Colorado has a "dog bite" statute, but California sure Diigging. California Civil Code section provides strict liability on the owner of a dog for dog bites.

A "Beware of Dog" sign might raise the issue of comparative fault, but it doesn't exculpate you. Check your contract s.

I just did. And like I said, I'm not against being practical and working with them. I just would like a notice and give my permission. If that lets you understand the consumers perspective for your Cabble.
