1. You need to go to court to get an injunction preventing your neighbour from blocking off your pipes and allowing you to take measures to unlock the pipes. Otherwise, you risk having raw sewage in your house, once the pipes back up. This sort of behaviour by your neighbour is totally uncalled for. It is the antithesis of civilised behaviour. So, I would advise you to see a solicitor and a plumber who can unblock the pipes. You will get your injunction for the asking. However, be aware that once you have got the injunction in place and the pipes unblocked, you will have to engage in either mediation or litigation in order to sort the issue of the septic tank out. So, see the obtaining of the injunction as the first step in sorting out the problem concerning the septic tank.
