Did you get a building permit? Sounds like you expanded the property?

How do the condo bylaws read regarding this matter. In duplex most times the land is split in the middle if that is the case unit 2 has no legal grounds to stop your addition.

Possible claim would be increase in exterior liability insurance and reserve for replacement of siding, painting and roof, so your % of condo fee could increase. Your personal assessment from the city should increase as well.

He wants a personal settlement for what? I know plenty of great Newton attorneys. Hope you pulled a building permit.
