What is the land ownership of a building the footprint or does it also includes the overhanging roof and guttering?
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?

That's different, that could cause a legal nuisance and therefore may be actionable.
