property line situation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Good morning,
 
Where (if at all) in the code (UBC/CBC) can I find a reference to the situation when a structure (house) on one property surcharges the retaining wall located on the adjacent property along the common boundary?
 
Also, the property line is located several feet away from, and parallel to, the boundary retaining wall.  The neighbors had actually paved, and used for many years, these several feet of the adjacent (not theirs) property.  Does the code or any other document address this situation?  What is an accepted way of dealing with it?
 
Thanks,
