My land is bordered by a stream which drains water from a large housing estate. The stream is eroding my boundary embankment and the Council tell me that I am responsible for it's maintenance. My Deeds show,by way of measurements, that my land limits do not extend in to half the stream as would be the case if I was responsible under Riparian Law. I have owned this property for 43years and never touched the stream. The Deeds do not mention RL. Please help.
