I am unsure if he has sufficient money as the total average quote is approx. £9,000 and he has said half would 'clear me out'.
Does this mean that the responsibility for the boundary shown as a T on the plans as being my neighbours, this also covers the retaining wall as well as the fence?
Thank you for your response. Just to be clear, the retaining wall is supporting my land which is approx. one metre higher than my neighbours. If I decide to leave it as is and the wall eventually collapses (which could be a long time), I would then be able to insist my neighbour carries out all of the repairs at his expense, including any legal fees?
Sorry about the delay in this response. I feel I have eventually received an inconclusive answer to my query. Your first answer stated that the retaining wall in question is my neighbours responsibility, but after more questions the eventual answer was that if the wall collapsed it would have to be proved that it was my neighbours fault.
The reason for the original question is that the wall is failing and to confirm the responsibility lies with my neighbour as shown on the plan.
