But don't expect perfection, nor a complete absence of effects at the neighboring property.  I recall many years ago, in Seattle, where a 3-story-deep excavation resulted in movement/cracking of the uphill neighbor, even though it was across a wide city street.  Not enough to endanger it, but definitely enough to cause the owners some distress.  Document, document, document!
