Neighborhood Law and Legal Definition

Neighborhood refers to the region near some place. It includes any place not distant.

In Commonwealth v. Turner, 2 Va. Cir. 267 (Va. Cir. Ct. 1954), the court held that “neighborhood means the neighborhood in which the party resides, which includes where he moves and circulates and transacts his business, and attends church, stores, mill and mixes generally with the people in the usual calls of life, and is best known, not extending to any great number of miles, and not extending beyond the same immediate section of his residence, and such acquaintances must be within that limit”.
