Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether you have had a survey done at all?
Ok, you need to get a survey done first of all, this will look at what is wrong, what the cause is and what needs to be done to stop it.
You can then present this to the neighbour and ask him to rectify.
If he refuses then can get a Solicitor to write and ask him to rectify or say you will go to Court.
If he refuses then you can issue Court proceedings
Once the matter is listed for Court you can use the report to show the Judge what is wrong and what needs to be done
You can seek a Court order to make him do the work
If he refuses and the Court orders it then he would be in contempt of Court and could be warned, fined or sent to prison
Any legal costs can be recovered through the Courts
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes he is entitled to drain the water, but it should not cause you any nuisance.
As for a survey you need one who specialises in flooding
It may be that the neighbour needs to pay for the remedial work
Yes that is right
But for that you need a surveyors report to show what the problem is etc
Yes but why its coming and how it can be fixed
can I clarify anything else for you?
Great. If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go - the button should be at the bottom of the screen
