Neighbours complaining about Barbecue - what is the law in Poland?

Hey there wondered if anyone can help me on this.

I have lived peacefully in my house for four years but recently the land next door was sold and now my new neighbours complain constantly about everything. They built a garage 3 metres from our fence which we didn't object to, I know I could of. I have a brick barbecue built 3 years ago 4 metres from my fence so distance from barbecue and there garage is 7 metres. They have told me I cannot use this as it could stain their paint on the wall of the garage.

My first reaction was F off but I wondered if anyone knows the law as they are the type of people who would make this an issue.

Thanks in advance for any advice

I don't know about the law. I know they are being unreasonable some ah..les like that exist. You need to check those 3 meters and if that the right distance tell them to move they grange away if they have an issue. Could be you can sort it out this way. If not it is better to take a stand now before they gonna pick on something else.

What you need to do is act from a position of strength, and show it. What they're doing is testing your strength - of course, there are no such regulations, but if they've built a garage illegally, they're obviously trying to discourage you from things that they don't want.

Check the regulations here - muratordom.pl/przed-budowa/dzialka/warunki-techniczne-usytuowanie-budynku-granica-dzialki-aa-cQoW-RJiK-STv5.html - and use it against them. One good option is to talk to them directly with a list of non-compliant things, then explain that they can either rectify the situation, or you'll pay a few grand to a well known local lawyer to sort it out directly with the town hall.

Go with that.

They built their garage too close to your grill... their problem.

If their garage`s door or windows face your fence, it should be 4 metres. If they don`t, 3 metres is enough. There are still exceptions to it (length of the garage) which allow to build such structures within 1.5 metre or less from the border.

One can read about it here

Well, there is no such direct law but if the damage appears, they might demand compensation, indeed.

I do pity you coz you gained lousy nitpicking neighbours.
