Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help with your question today.
Did you give the neighbour notice of your intention to hang the baskets on the wall?
We gave them notice and the baskets have been in place for over a year....this is just one of many gripes my neighbour seems to have with me! She complained because the noise of trickling water in my pond was annoying her and she dislikes the fact that I have a tv Arial on the summer house ate the bottom of my garden. She says the ivy must be removed and the hanging baskets.
This is a highly contentious area of law. Strictly speaking you do need your neighbours express permission to afix objects to their extension - it is their building and their wall. Ultimately they woukd have a claim against you for any damage caused under the tort of nuisance. If this is a boundary wall then they may also have rights under the Party Wall etc Act 1996. The bot***** *****ne, unfortunately, is that you don't have an automatic right to hang baskets and grow ivy in the manner you've described.
Ok....but do I have any right to complain that their extension roof (felt and plastic trim) is over the boundary line on my property (as is the wall itself, I suspect), even though it was already there when I moved in?
