becuase now they have written me a letter syaing that basically they are going to seek legal advice
For years their garden has drained into our garden, they have basically admitted that in the letter, but now they are experiencing their 'fair share' of flooding issues during heavy rainfall
And are now blaming us
Yes, they have written us a letter saying that it is our fault
in the letter they make reference that the last 40 years they have not had extreme problem and that the old lady who used to live at out our has 'put up with the bad flooding' issue in our property
but the way I see it, their garden has always been draining into ours, we have simply rasisied it 3/4 inches to the same level as theirs and now they like everyone in the entire area experience flooding of a few inches during moderate to heavy rainfall
What is the law when it come to your back garden?
What can you do, what can you not do?
We havent exactly raised our garden 3 foot or channeled any excess rainwater to flow into their garden.
I guessed all the information that you have given me, it seems pretty obvious, but I need something solid as a response to my issue. Somthing with a bit more substance.
I need to reply to their letter and that reply needs some actual hard facts
I cant just reply saying 'sorry you are wrong, prove we have done anything wrong'
