Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Are the plants causing damage please?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No, the plants have just been planted and I have not yet fixed the wires.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 11 months ago.

Ok - if it is not causing damage it is ok.

If anything has been affixed to the wall or the plants are causing damage then this is an issue

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
it is OK time drill in to the bricks to hang the wires?

Should read: So it is OK to drill in to the bricks to hang the wires?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 11 months ago.

No. Nothing can be attached or damaged to the bricks.

I said: If anything has been affixed to the wall or the plants are causing damage then this is an issue

Does that clarify?

What if the wall is partly on my side of the boundary?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 11 months ago.

The same applies either side.

Does that clairfy?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I does not seem right that I cannot support plant on a wall that extends on to my side of the boundary.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 11 months ago.

But it belongs to you both. You can not damage or affix anything to it without permission of the co owner.

The same applies to your neighbour.

Does that clairfy?

if you owned it wholly you would be ok. But it's shared property so permission is needed from co owner,
