Couple claims Tim McGraw, Faith Hill's property damages home

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A local couple has filed a lawsuit against the trust that owns Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's home in west Nashville.

According to The City Paper, Ernest and Jennifer Gendron claim that their home is being damaged due to negligent action on behalf of 1151 Crater Hill Trust.

The lawsuit was filed last Thursday, June 27.

The Gendrons live downhill from McGraw and Hill's $12 million home and have sustained damage to their property caused by the flood in May 2010.

The damage continues to have a negative effect on their home.

Downed trees and other "forest material" from the country stars' property were heaped onto the Gendrons property after the flood.

The flood also damaged natural drainage paths so that water now flows directly onto the Gendrons' patio area, house foundation, basement and garage when it rains.

The City Paper quotes the lawsuit and explains that the neighbors have tried to rectify the problem prior to seeking legal action.

"The Plaintiffs have attempted in good-faith, to reach out and negotiate with Defendant to avoid a public and contentious legal action but the Defendant has either refused to agree to corrective action or has misled the Plaintiffs into believing action was imminent, only to take no action," the lawsuit reads.

Bill Ramsey, the attorney for 1151 Crater Hill Trust, stated that the lawsuit centers around the land.

He told the newspaper "it's really like a nuisance lawsuit against the land."
