Abuse of my damp proof course

This answer was rated:

My neighbours are abusing my damp proof course by 225cms with a path abutting my boundary wall and they say it is not their responsibility as the path was like it when they bought the property in 2004. If I want it fixed they say it is up to me. They have had a damp proofing company produce a report which is to cost me £588.75 + vat.Is it my problem or theirs and am I liable for the cost thereof
LondonlawyerJ :

Hello look at the last answer I gave you in the other question. Basically at that price you are best off just fitting the damp proof course and avoiding a dispute with an uncertain outcome.
