The House of Sand and Fog (2003)

34 Bisgrove Street (a cliffside ranch) becomes a tax-sale battleground between the home's former owner, Kathy (Jennifer Connelly), and its new deed holder, Behrani (Ben Kingsley). Not only has Kathy lost the emotionally grounding house, she has to watch from the sidelines as a disproportionately large roof deck is added to maximize the ocean views.

Moral: Pay your property taxes on time, or the county could seize your home and put it up for auction.
