    What's the law on building an extension that blocks a neighbours window? 13th Apr 18 at 10:04 AM
    Ok, we are going to view a 3 bed house and one of the things that attracted us to it was that we could build a fourth bedroom over the garage. But we drove past yesterday and saw that the next door neighbours garage is attached to the house we are going to see. Also, the neighbours have almost finished a 4th bedroom extension above thier garage with a window overlooking the house we are going to see. So if we were to buy the house and extend above our garage ( like they have) the two houses would effectively meet in the middle and block thier brand new window!
    So my question is, Does thier new extension with window effectively stop anyone who buys this house building a 4th bedroom of thier own?

    Less confusing for everyone if you start your own thread rather than tag your question onto a rather different one.

    If the facts are correct, the answer to your question is probably 'nothing.'
    If you want more detail, please start a seperate thread. This one is dead.
