I called the municipal technician and he told me that, that they both have to agree and that’s it, that whatever they both see convenient, but if there is no good feeling between them… then one of them wants to raise it more, but without breaking the regulations, of course.
The heights of closings must be defined in the urban development regulations. If it is not, maybe there is a generic “superior” norm that solves that doubt (in Galicia the Autonomic Basic Plan). But as @cabronias tells you, the right of views and lights is regulated in the Civil Code.
The distances of the Civil Code have effects of civil jurisdiction, but in the NNSS or PGOU of turn (and if not, very possibly in the provincial complementary NNSS) there are minimum straight lights that are usually higher and that the change the gap should respect. Here the town hall can get involved.
If I comply with everything, and the neighbor bothers that I can see over his property, let HIM spend the money to put ON HIS SIDE what he considers appropriate…, of course, complying with the regulations, I do not see the logic of spending the money on ME, who is the one who complies, and also on a MEDIANERA, which I say, will belong to both of us, so I am putting money that HE would have to put on top of it.
