Customer Question

I have a property and in 1986 the private combined drain collapsed, the council carried out the repair and charged the 10 Properties 10% each. The drain actual services 10 properties and 10 garages owned by other people. I believe if the sewer serves multiple properties, all owners are jointly responsible for the costs. Therefore the £50k should be split between the 20 properties not 10. I and still fighting the council and I have offered to pay 5% What is the law on joint costs of private sewers repairs.
