Homeowners have noticed that a neighbor has applied for a permit that would include installing a construction fence in the backyard. There’s currently a fence on the property line, but plans are for an eight foot tall construction fence to run outside the property line while a new addition goes up. What rights to control access to their property do the homeowners have? What else should they consider before the neighbor’s construction project begins?
Please chime in with your advice.
