Сколько метров должно быть до забора, если сосед строит новый дом, сажает деревья создает другие объекты?

Not so many neighbors over the years have been able to maintain good-neighborly relations.

And, as a rule, the cause of the deterioration of the relationship was a new building or tree, which appeared right on the common features. At the request of a little retreat from the fence, often you could only hear disagreement, which turned into protracted disputes and quarrels.

In order to avoid such situations, it is necessary for each of us to be aware of the restrictions established by law and to immediately demand their observance.

So, the State Building Standards - DBN 79-92 “Residential buildings for individual developers of Ukraine” - such distances were established for green spaces:

  • from the walls of buildings and structures to the tree axis - 5 m, for shrubs - 1.5 m;
  • from the border of the adjacent plot to the tree axis - 3 m, for bushes - 1 m

However, it should be remembered that the branches of trees and bushes should not cross the boundaries of adjacent areas.

In the case of penetration of roots and branches of trees from one land plot to another, the owners of land plots on which branches and roots have the right to independently cut off the roots of trees and bushes that penetrate from a neighboring land plot if this is an obstacle to the use of a land plot.

Also, according to DBN 360-92 ** “Urban planning. Planning and building of urban and rural settlements ”, if there is no building on the other side of the border, the distance to the side border of the site from the most prominent wall structure should be at least 1 m .

At the same time, the necessary engineering and technical measures should be provided for, prevent precipitation from the roofs and eaves of buildings to the territory of adjacent land.

Сколько метров должно быть до забора, если сосед строит новый дом, сажает деревья создает другие объекты?

According to sanitary standards, toilets should be located no closer than 15 m from a residential building and a summer kitchen, and 20 m from a drinking well.

Requirements for fencing (height, structure, material) are established by local building regulations. The fence should pass along the border and should not create obstacles for the intended use of the neighboring land plot, obscure it, etc.

Also, land owners and land users must choose such land use methods in accordance with their intended purpose, in which owners and land users of adjacent land plots have less inconvenience: shading, smoke, unpleasant smells, and other noise pollution.

It is worth noting that the DBN today is losing force, since now such issues are no longer the competence of the central authorities, but are assigned to the powers of local governments.

Today, such standards are established in local building regulations or a project for building and improvement of a settlement, which are approved by the local council after coordination with the local town planning and architecture authority. But It is worth noting that the established norms of the former DBN fully find their displays in the acts of local authorities.

And if there are serious disputes regarding the compliance of neighbors with the rules of good neighborliness and regarding the borders of land plots owned by the court, the owner addresses the court through his lawyer, because today there is a procedure for obtaining legal assistance from lawyers in courts.
