Homeowners want to bring back the original design of the stoop on their townhouse but have concerns it might encroach on a neighbor’s yard. The original newel post would have been placed slightly inside the neighboring fenced front yard but because the lot line ends before the stoop it is likely actually city property. They have tried to discuss the issue with the neighboring rental property owner without any luck. In addition to investigating the revocable consent process from the city what steps should they take?
Please chime in with your advice.
