Clarify neighborhood matters


A construction measure affects the neighboring plots of the building plot. That is why the Building Code of Saxony-Anhalt contains numerous regulations that serve to protect the neighbors.

These include, for .B, boundary distances for buildings and outbuildings, but also for trees or determinations as to which neighbor must erect the fence. In addition, there are regulations that give the neighbors a special legal position in the building permit procedure. In certain cases, they can inspect the construction file.

In Saxony-Anhalt, the filing of an action in court in disputes under neighbouring law is only permitted after an attempt has been made by a municipal arbitration board, a lawyer or notary to settle the dispute amicably.

In the brochure "Agreement on the Garden Fence", published by the Ministry of Justice, you will find detailed information on the Neighbourhood Act.
