Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Is it true you never asked them?
When did they know about this do you know? Was it when it was built?
So the landlord never knew about it? Why didn't you ask permission please?
What are they asking you to do, if anything?
Can you attach it here?
So it looks as if at this stage they only want to know if you have built over a drain? Are there any repairs which need doing? If so, you need to do those as well.
But it looks like you dont need to do anything save for any repairs and say you havent built over any drains.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
They have not said about taking it down. They have only said repair - you can confirm that it is over a drain but it is approved over the planners.
They may just be concerned about the drain issue. If they want you to take it down, you can refuse and they would have to get a Court order.
On the basis it complies with Regulations and has been there for 12 years, so fairly obvious, I do not think a Court would make you do that.
You just confirm in writing what you have said to me - it may be worth getting a Solicitor to draft a response.
You need to act quick so it goes to them Monday
Does that clarify?
