Ask an Australia Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your prompt reply, we were the first property in the street and initially there was supposed to be another garage the other side of ours but instead we got a garden bed. Is there no recourse because they have built over our damp course and a sharing of costs to fix? We had to put the garage there because of council on the boundary line. We sit below everyone else. I am all for good neighbours and if I can sort this out amicably I certainly will but I would just like to know how I stand before approaching this.
Again Many thanks
