Building ConstructionEnduring the pains of a construction project—the months (or even years) of inconvenience, noise, vibrations, debris and annoyance—is dreadful. This is especially true when the project is not yours but, rather, your neighbor’s. In today’s world of booming high-rises and the repurposing of single-family homes and neighborhoods into multi-family dwellings and mixed-use environments, it is common to see substantial construction projects within close proximity to neighboring buildings and houses (often right up to the adjoining property line). Small buildings are demolished to make room for larger ones.

Sometimes during the construction, access to a neighboring property is required in order to either perform the construction or install safety measures. Such access can entail activities like installing sidewalk sheds on the neighboring property for overhead protection, possessing a portion of the neighboring property during excavation and even underpinning the neighbor’s building.
