What is a nuisance?

We frequently refer to somebody as a nuisance . Well the law recognizes "nuisance" as an inappropriate behavior pattern. The nuisance is an unreasonable conduct which causes real, substantial and unreasonable damage or interference with another person's ordinary use and/or enjoyment their property. Nuisance could relate to an adjacent landowner's use of loud music, burning or utilizing other materials that cause pollution of the air, or invade or infect the water supply. There are an infinite number of nuisances. Suffice it to say that if one could prove that another individual is unreasonably interfering with the use and enjoyment of their property then the one interfering with the property is probably responsible and can be held responsible under the theory that they are a nuisance.
