Use caution when building to the boundary
Monday, 31 March 2014
The Victorian Building Authority is encouraging anyone planning to build on the boundary of a property to make sure they accurately identify the title boundary line to avoid encroaching on an adjacent property.
The VBA's Chief Executive Officer, Prue Digby, said any encroachment may be considered a trespass of land.
"Encroachment could result in the adjacent land owner taking the property owner to court to seek to have the encroachment removed," Ms Digby said.
