A neighbour keeps putting items up against my end wall which in time breeches the DPC and could cause dampness.Alas he does this because its his driveway that separates our houses,he will not put anything up against his wall.Where do I stand.
Hello, I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this.
The position ii this. He can do what he wants on his land but if he does something on his land which causes foreseeable harm then he will be liable to compensate you for that harm. If dampness has not yet been caused there is no action against him. Sometimes it can be a good idea to warn someone that what they are doing may cause a problem so perhaps you could write to him warning him that he risks breaching your DPC and asking him to stop putting items against your end wall.
Thank you very much for your answer,does one really have to wait until damage is done,and do I have a right to build and extension on my land but will need to put some scaffolding on two feet of his land
Thank you for your answer,I guess I will have to forget an extension
