Planning to build an extension on the boundary wall? If so, then you need to be in close consultation with your neighbor. Whether your neighbor has a property on the other side of the wall or not, you still need to agree with him or her before constructing an extension.
It ensures that you avoid breaching the boundary in the process of putting up your expansion. If you go ahead and violate the limits, the local authorities in your area may deny you the permissions you require.
To be clear, you can build an extension right on a boundary wall but through consensus with your neighbor. If you don’t, your neighbor may voice his or her concerns by applying with the local authority.
So don’t build right up to the boundary before you show the plans to your neighbor. If he or she notices anything of concern, accept the corrections resulting from it.
In addition to that, you need to consult a contractor to build an extension right up to the boundary. The average cost of extensions per square meter is between R9,000 and R12,000.
No contractor would ask you to pay more than you should. Instead, the amount you pay will depend on the type of services you want from the contractor. We will make building an extension on the boundary wall a simple, affordable process.
