Thank you. It is unlikely to be the massive increase in gutter size which has caused the problem. The reason is that the amount of water flowing off the roof and into the gutters is unchanged.
In fact, having a larger gutters should ease the problem because they will not overflow as easily as smaller gutters.
Nonetheless, if this extra flow of water down your downspout is caused because they have changed something such as removed downspout and therefore, there is now nowhere to going down your downspout them before, then you have a claim against the council in negligence for doing the work negligently and also against the council in nuisance because this water, flowing from their properties, as a result of their changes to the gutters, is quite simply a nuisance.
It would be really useful if you could find out what changes had been made to the location of the outlets on the replaced gutters.
If you send a solicitors letter to the local authority they may take more notice or, if you don’t want to spend any money, check your house insurance to see if you have legal expenses cover that would pay for legal costs of any action.
If you have already written to the council without effect or acknowledgement, you can then make a further complaint about the councils reluctance to deal with this, to the Local Government Ombudsman which is a free service although it is not particularly quick.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Please don’t forget to rate the service positive. It doesn’t cost you anything but helps me greatly, I get paid!
