Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney with more than 18 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help
Also, if you would like to chat on the phone, let me know and I can make that happen.
Primarily your rights will depend on your city (if you live within the city) or county (if you are outside the city limits) code.
What you are describing is governed by local "zoning" laws.
Many cities and counties have laws that limit the ability to build up and block neighbors views. If your neighbors are in violation of a local ordinance? You can request the city or county take action to correct this
Now...if there is no city or county ordinance on point?
It is MUCH more difficult.
You may be able to sue to block this...but frankly speaking if there are no local zoning laws? You will likely be wasting money to try and stop this...since the law defers to local zoning laws in this area...if the city county do not have rules to enforce this the court will not likely allow you to deny your neighbor the right to develop their property.
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that you have a right to a view independent of city or county rules, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
