I have DA approval to extend my semi detached house and need to extend my side of the party wall for a new back-room extension with a flat roof. Two issues though:
1. It seems that the fence that continues on from the party wall into the backyard is actually on my property. This section of fence needs to go for the 3 metres of the wall it will be replacing on the boundary line. It looks as if his pergola id actually over the boundary line and will impede the extension of the party wall.
2. A builder said that he will need to remove temporarily my neighbour tiles on the property lines where the flat roof will now meet the existing tiles roof as part of the construction.
My neighbour refuses to meet with me re discussing above and is actually quite aggressive about it. The irony is tat he wants to build as well one day and I will be very accommodating.
What are my possible next steps? If council has approved it and I give my neighbour written notice can I remove the fence and replace that section with a brick wall without his agreement. What about displacing his roof temporarily?
I have run out of patience because his complaints to council has delayed construction for 1 year. What legal option do I have at my disposal?
