Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Do you have a copy of your Deeds (the Land Registry title) to hand?
yes I have an electronic form, can I email it to you?
Thanks for your reply.
Well, you will need to look at the Deeds to see what rights your property has been granted, over the driveway.
If i refer you to the Property Register, this should set out any rights you do have- there should of course be a right of way over the driveway, and as regards ***** ***** supply, you are looking for wording similar to -
"together with a right of passage of water over the driveway and the right to access the driveway for the purpose of maintaining the drains pipes and sewers serving the property"
or words to that effect.
If such wording does exist, then you have the right to make the necessary works. If there is no such wording, I'm afraid you would need to seek consent of the owner, as there is no implied right for you to enter and carry out the repairs just because your water supply runs under the driveway.
If you have any problems with understanding the Deds, please feel free to send them as an attachment in your next post.
Hope this helps.
Can I assist you any further?
