Building Line

By on March 11, 2019

A building line is a setback line which indicates the closest another building is allowed to be without encroachment.

This imaginary line don’t just stop other buildings from coming close, but also a building itself from projecting beyond it’s legal boundaries via improvements.

They also play a huge role in enforcing uniformity and conformity of real estate in particular areas.

Sometimes they can affect other rights of property owners such as visual rights.

Such a line is fixed at a certain distance from all sides of the building in question.

Building lines are determined in recorded subdivision plats or with subdivision building restrictions in the subdivider’s deed.

Local governments also have the authority to set them.
