Footings problem

I don't know much about building, but Hubby says that we will run into a problem if the neighbours pour their slab before us (which will definately happen). Not that we have a slab, we will be on stumps; but we need a concrete footing for the side wall which will be on the fence line.

I just sent our plans off to our engineer to see what we can do. It may mean that we have to put a footing down in a few weeks at or before the neighbours pour their slab.

If that ends up to be the case, then we will have to remove the trees that currently line that fence and pull up the deck. I hope he doesn't take too long to respond as I am hoping to replant the trees somewhere else. If possible as they are pencil pines which don't like getting moved.
