As a homeowner, you have certain rights and responsibilities when it comes to your neighbour’s building plans. These include:
The right to object to planning permission if you believe the extension will have a negative impact on your property
The right to access your neighbour’s property if necessary to carry out repairs or maintenance
The responsibility to maintain any shared walls or fences
The responsibility to ensure that any alterations to your property do not negatively impact your neighbour’s property
If you’re concerned about your neighbour’s extension, it can be helpful to work with a surveyor. A surveyor can provide expert advice on the potential impact of the extension, as well as your rights and responsibilities. They can also help you navigate any disputes that may arise with your neighbour.
