Hi , if a casa wall sits on is on the road edge of a back ( tarmac) road , no through road and the casa pre 1951 has a habitation license . It is obviously aloud to exist as is so far ..!
1:could this change at any point in time ?
2: if a project is submitted for general upgrade and extension works will this be a new problem eg the offending wall would have to be removed and placed 3 meters in from the road !
Thank you for any relevant info .

What i would do is take a photo of another similar property to yours and go and ask the Camara "If i buy this property would i have a problem " explain to them your concerns because all you want is general information. It's worth a try.

It depends on the location, if the wall faces a main road then yes the camera may request a demolition.

Peter is right to suggest visiting the camara, they wil tell you exactly what is allowed. Planning laws change frequently here and not all camaras have the sme rules., some are very strict on boundary distances. Good luck!
