Expert:  Michael Holly replied 1 year ago.

the supporting posts should be on their property not yours. Speak to them first and if they will not move them get a local solicitor to write a letter to them as they are trespassing on your land.

Dear Michael, please can you confirm what legal provisions i can reply on? i have had a look at Party Wall etc. Act 1996, is there any case law that can support this? thanks
Expert:  Michael Holly replied 1 year ago.

The Party Wall legislation is not relevant , this is trespassing which there is plenty of authority for.
