Is there a required distance betwenn a residence and the property line in the town of frankfort, new york?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken so far? Has any paperwork been prepared or filed?

The building already exists. There is a dispute as to the location of the property line. I want to know if there is a specific distance requirement between the residential structure and the neighboring property.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have they talked to a NY lawyer about this?

No. I am simply inquiring because the current distance from my residence to the property line contended by my neighbor is only 14 feet. This seems far too close to meet regulations, but I don't have the specific local distance requirement.

I am asking about side yard setbacks for residential properties. I do not know what you are asking in regards ***** ***** designation.

For residential properties, the setback is 10 feet from the property line, meaning the neighboring houses must be at least 20 feet apart side to side.
