I live at 19 (the small house on the left) and my neighbour has taken me to sherif court to claim for repairs, which i did not agree to.
The repairs are for repairs to his slates and roof - which I believe has nothing to do with me and
to damp coming in from the top rear of his gable. I agreed to chimney repairs as the chimney stack is common but not to the gable as I don’t know what liability I have.
He has had the whole of the gable rerendered without my agreement and wants me to pay half. I don’t know what guarantees he has.
The reason I did not agree to the gable being rendered is because the chimney breasts need rebuilt and that would result in removing the new rendering to rebuild the bricks and then putting new render on top i.e. paying twice.
I don’t think the gable is common (the chimney stack is) as my houde is below the area concerned and my house was build 17 years before number 20.
My house has its own 4 walls. The photos show (to me ) that number 20 has its own gables. The houses were all built in slightly different style and over a period now form a terrace.
Thet were not built as a terrace with common gables separating each house
