We have a wee problem with a neighbour. They’ve built a deck that extends past their boundary and onto our land.
After the usual argy-bargy, we lodged a complaint with ACTPLA (at the advice of ACTPLA, mind you) only to be told that it’s outside their authority. This is apparently because the structure was exempt from a DA.
Does this mean that in the ACT if you build a structure that doesn’t require a DA you can build it wherever you like? Is the onus then on the lessee of that land to go through the expense of a civil action to make you remove it? That doesn’t sound at all right to me.
Does anyone out there know anything about this?
