Aedificare in tuo proprio solo non licet quod alteri noceat is a latin phrase. It means ‘it is not lawful to build on one's own land what may be injurious to another.’ Law does not allow a person to make constructions or alterations on his/her own land if it is injurious to another person. For example, a landowner does not have a right to erect a building on his own ground if it interferes with the due enjoyment of adjoining premises. The interference may be caused by overhanging constructions, or by throwing water from the roof and eaves upon the adjoining premises, or by obstructing ancient lights and windows.
