When demolishing a house in nsw, do you need to seek approval from neighbours?
We've moved into a rental, the house next door is being demolished and I'm trying to work out if the owners would have known about this before we signed the lease. We would not have signed up for a lease that would have primarily meant we would be living next door to a construction site for the duration of the lease.
The contractors are Cowboys... They have twice exposed our back fence to the street and the dogs could have escaped. They have severely damaged some fence panels. Now all down the side of the house, there is a huge gap under the fence enough for the dogs to escape from. We've blocked it off with bins etc. tonight my DH came home and literally touched the wall and parts of it collapsed into the yard. I have a 2 year old boy... What if he did that!?!
What are our rights as tenants? We don't feel secure in our own yard.
