I live in a gated community of villas. My villa shares a common wall with my neighbour's villa. He has recently extended that wall and put a roof on that wall, making the terrace (open area) as another bedroom. He did this in my absence and I got to know only when I returned home. Now there are few issues with that: 1) As per our sale agreement with builder, no construction is allowed in the villa. 2) The common wall is a partition wall and not a load-bearing wall. it may not take the load of the roof causing damage to the structure 3) They have used the full width of a common wall, while as per site demarcation half of the common wall is under my plot area. Hence it is also an issue of encroachment. Can you please advise what are the legal recourse I have in this case?

If there is an illegal construction then, one can go to the municipal corporation of the city and can lodge a complaint with the proper procedure. The municipal corporation will send a notice to the residents/owner of the property. Also you can also file a complaint with police and can take help for illegal construction.
