Exercising your legal rights to sunlight

You have legal rights to your sunlight; nobody can build up so that your solar exposures are affected. Government acknowledges value in the amount of sunlight that hits your home.

You have a legal right to demand that your neighbors remove trees and other impediments to your solar access. If a neighbor’s trees are shading your prop­erty, you can do something about it. Remember though, this right goes both ways. If you’re shading somebody else’s property, he or she can force you to remedy the situation. Check with your local governments to see what sorts of laws apply to your specifics.
