wallis has no particular reputation at present
encroachment by neighbour


We have recently purchased a building land in Valais.

Once we took possession, we visited our land.

We saw that our adjoining neighbour is building an underground parking.

For this he has dug-up on our side from the border approx 1.5 - 2 meters (all along the length of our border).

Apparently, he needs space to work from our side.

But, no one asked for our permission or permission from prior owner and now he is cementing his basement structure and he has also cemented on our side (50 cm inside our land).

We have complained to the neighbour, the commune and contemplating legal action but it appears as a very costly process.

Our lawyer has written a warning letter but he has continued to build on our side.

I just want to know if anyone has experienced something similar or does Swiss law permit building on neighbour's land without consent?

Thank you.
