How can I gain access to my neighbor’s property to do repairs to my house when she refuses?
My house has an addition on it with the walls abuting the property line, which means that I have walls exposed on both my west and east sides. I need to do repairs to the stucco on the exposed walls of the addition, but the neighbor on one side has refused to give access to her property for work to be done. The situation is complicated by the fact that while some of the wall is exposed, some of it is partially covered by her decks and so it would require going onto her decks. Her decks are falling apart so I am also concerned about any consequences that may come from that. I would be happy to contribute to helping repair her decks, but realistically, her decks need to be torn down and rebuilt and that would cost far more than any damage to my house from not being able to repair my stucco. I’ve tried discussing the issue with her as has my contractor and she has consistently refused to allow him to do the work that needs to be done. So I am now trying to figure out if there are any other solutions.
Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.
