Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
You own to the edge of land. If the structure on the land overhangs other land then it that overhanging part still is owned by the persons who land it comes from.
So even though it could be trespassing onto a neighbours land it will still be owned by the person who's structure it is on.
Does that help?

Not quite does this mean that downpipes can let out water on to land not belonging to you/
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
That's different, that could cause a legal nuisance and therefore may be actionable.
