I have a neighbour who is building a rear extension to her property up to the party wall, this will take my right of light away from us as the room only light comes from a north facing patio door adjacent to the extension they are building. The council know this is a permitted development and as such cant get involved even though it will dramatically reduce the light to the room. How much would it cost approximately to take the neighbour to court to stop the build or make them change the plans to move the extension further away from the party wall. ?Also if succesful does the neighbour who causes the problem have to pick up the bill ?
they only notified us on week before they started, they have already dug foundations and pured concrete. the council have only just phoned us today and said they cant do anything, but they might pop up next week and have a look. it is really upsetting that this can take place under the new regulations before we have a chance to object.
I agree, i will be going to a solicitor in the morning and I will be writing a letter as soon as I have closed this screen.You have ben wonderful and I thank you for your time and opinion you have got an excellent vote from me.. Thank you
