I bought a house 3 yrs ago that had RV parking in my back yard through an alley in the rear of my house, approx 1/3rd of my back yard is devoted to this. It has a 20’ chain link fence for access, and a cement pad around 15’ x 50’. When I bought the house it was advertised as having RV parking, I would not have bought this house if it didn’t have it.

So the problem is this, behind my house is the alley, and then a row of houses, then a major street. The city is widening that major street, so in they are removing the row of houses, and as I just found out, the alley as well.

There is no other means of access into my back yard except for a small gate. So when I loose the alley, there goes my RV parking, I talk with the city on several occasions and they just seemed to string me along, saying they will get back to me. Finally they returned my emails and stated that the alley was originally intended to service the row of houses behind me, and that I was just fortunate to have used the alley for this long.

My question is I know I cannot stop progress, but I am loosing value in my house. I paid a premium for this house because of the RV parking.

I feel I should be compensated. What do you think, do I have a case?
