Dear PoP – Is This Legal?

“Dear PoP,

The house next door to us recently built a deck off their dining room that comes right up to our property line and is a few feet higher than our 6 foot privacy fence (see attached photo). So, my question is, does this deck violate building code? And if so, how should I handle this with the neighbors? Finally, the house is now for sale (investors bought it a few months ago and did a major renovation, including the deck) so there is rarely anyone there to talk to, even if I wanted to.”

Anyone know if this violates code? And since it’s already been built – how would you deal with the neighbors? Especially if the neighbors are investors and not living there?
