Dangers of neighbours rebuilding Increased boundary disputes are likely if planning policies to increase housing densities combined with the trend to maximise land space go ahead. Archicentre state manager Angus Kell says in a recent case a house actually fell into the block next door during excavations. ''Often in inner suburban areas older homes are being demolished to be replaced with townhouses, apartments or one very expensive property,'' he said. ''Many of these redevelopments involve extensive deep excavation across a large section of the land to allow for the foundation structures, underground carparking and storage facilities. ''One of the most dangerous times is when deep excavations are taking place on the boundary . . . and there is heavy rain which can change soil conditions quickly.'' A major slip can cause financial disaster for the owner of the property being redeveloped and the neighbour as it usually ends in a costly legal dispute. Mr Kell says an owner proposing building work must protect the adjoining property from damage. Archicentre is increasingly asked to undertake status reports on neighbouring properties. ''A status report carried out professionally on neighbouring houses records all existing defects to allow the tracking of any new damage which may occur during the construction period,'' he said. The report records the condition of the home photographically combined with an extensive written report and provides protection for all parties: the builder, the owner and the neighbour.
