Call the code enforcement office for the town.  they have to keep vibrations down to a minimum.  you should have someone take a film of your entire property and date it so that if there are any cracks, you will be able to document that the cracks are new.  You may also have to contact the county engineer, and determine if the neighbor has ll of the proper permits for interior renovations and construction.

Construction Law
From zoning issues to negotiating construction contracts and from mechanics liens to defects and delays, construction law requires attorneys to have a range of experience and knowledge in a host of areas necessary to guide projects from inception to completion. Whether you're involved in a private project or a public works project, whether your company operates in the construction industry or you're a client who wants something built, a construction law firm can advise and consult with you throughout the project, helping to ensure you have the necessary legal protections in your contracts, assisting you on zoning and permitting issues, and working to resolve any disputes that arise.
