In general, if a fence or retaining wall is on your neighbour`s side of the property line, you are responsible for it. Where it is on the real estate line, they must get your permission before construction, and should try to find an agreement on the price. Depending on where you live, they may also need city clearance and construction monitoring by a geotechnist and statistician. Yes, yes. Isolated walls, including retaining walls, above 6 feet in height, require a building permit. An electrical clearance may be required for accessory accessories (for example. B electric lights, automatic doors, etc.) on the fence and/or garden walls. Walls insulated to or below 6 feet in height, measured by quality or finite surface, do not require a building permit. Fences, hedges, walls and retaining walls no more than three feet high are permitted in all front, side or rear courtyards required on a road. Only open fences no more than three feet high are allowed at the required angle angles. Walls, hedges and other visual obstacles are prohibited.
