Lake Views - Right of Prospect
Michigan law does not recognize lake views as a property right...
One morning, you awake to find a new house, shed, or fence being erected in the path of your view to the lake.
That does not mean all is lost. Often times, enforcement of setback and height requirements under local zoning regulations can protect the views of the lake, indirectly.
