Bylaw and property right entrenchment

Postby avonord » Thu Sep 24, 2015 10:37 am

Hi All. A hypothetical scenario..

Let's say I bought a house. It has a driveway for the past 20 years and it was built without a permit. Also, the driveway violates a bylaw. A neighbour calls and complains about it. A week later, the city tells me to take the driveway down. Can I fight this? Am I entrenched in my right to the driveway?

Thanks

Best to consult with a lawyer. You won't get a legal opinion here.
