Neighbor’s extension


I live on a block full of attached homes with a 25 by 20 ft backyard. My neighbor decided she would like to extend her home basically the full 25 by 20 ft. which would darken my apartment and close me in. I would like to know the halacha if she is allowed to go forth with her plans.




The first thing you would need to verify what the local zoning laws are, as they have halachic bearing on what neighbor is allowed and not allowed to do. Additionally, check the deed of the property, as it might say something there about this. After checking these sources, I would advise you to speak with one of the local dayanim.

Best wishes
