Matt Lauer's horse farm has been issued a stop-work order by local residents. Lauer's decision to turn the $3.5 million property into a farm for 30 horses has angered residents living around the area.

According to the New York Post, the order was posted last month on the former office structure.

A source told the Post: 'When tearing down the old office they found rot. We need to fix the roof before work can begin again.'  

'We're not at odds with the town,' the Lauer source added.

The Hamptons property was previously a tree nursery and is right next to Lauer's $15 million mansion. The massive estate includes 36 horse stalls, a riding arena and a man-made pond, as well.

Local officials have reportedly received plenty of complaints from the "Today" show host's neighbors, who think the farm could cause traffic problems and will be too intrusive.

One neighbor, Harriet Whittenberg, told the Post the plan would bring down the quality of life for Lauer's neighbors.

'Just because Lauer and his wife have this dream doesn't mean that you can take down the quality of life for everyone,' she said.
