State of Disrepair
I don't think there is any issue with having your hives close to your house will cause any problem, and if it is sunny there that is a bonus. However, you have to weigh that against what the neighbor's reaction may be. If that location is going to rile up the neighbors, I'd try to choose a location less likely to upset them.

If 'next to' your house is simply that the hives would be visible to the neighbors, but not 'close' to them, for now put the hives in the less sunny spot you originally had in mind. Then build a fence or other visual barrier and move the bees where you want them after you get the fence built.
