No, The property owner will not let us have access. The Garden wall, which is also a retaining wall (my house is 2mt above their garden) and is in a dangerous condition and will fall over into their garden. It was built in 1850 and needs to be dissmantled and re-built The Land ACt 1992 should give me access rights through the court. Is there any forms that I can fill in and send to the courts?
