Foundation replacement that will affect driveway easement
Greetings! We are considering buying an old house in the city of Alameda that will need the brick foundation replaced. The big issue is that one side of the house abuts a narrow driveway that is shared with the building next door. The next-door building owns the land under the driveway, and the house in question has an easement to use the driveway to reach the back of the property. Both properties need to use the driveway to access their parking. We don't know if we would be able to replace a foundation without blocking the driveway. Has anyone else dealt with a similar problem? How did you handle it? Can a foundation be replaced by only accessing 3 sides of a house? Is it possible to reserve street parking for the neighbors for the duration of the project so they could still have parking? Thanks!
