My father purchased a house in Springfield Gardens NY fifty years ago surrounded by trees. Developers purchased the vacant land and built new houses. The new owner erected a garage one foot from his property line without his knowledge or permission. He is now deceased and we have a buyer for the house who wants to add onto the front of the house.He is being refrained from doing so because of the one foot. The neighbor who owns the property is not affected and the garage is still standing. We have been told that we have to know nine feet off the back of the house. My father is now deceased. It does not make sense. We have therefore lost our inheritance. Since he was not responsible for changing the property line and the owners who did so are now deceased as well. Could this not be grandfathered in? Otherwise the house will sit there until it is burned to the ground and destroyed or used by drug addicts. Please help. Thank you
