Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi thank you for your enquiry and patience. Your understanding is right. Run-off although natural and in most cases cannot be eradicated is a problem farmers are well aware of and they have a responsibility to ensure run-off from their land does not damage neighbouring properties. The farmer is ignoring this obligation and you have tried to engage with him to no avail. Whereas you could pursue him through the first tier tribunal and seek an injunction order, this can be costly and you may want to consider mediation first. The national mediation helpline can be reached at 0845(###) ###-####, the fees would be a lot less than legal action. You may want to check your home insurance policy as it may provide cover for legal disputes and they could pick this up for you. I hope this is helpful and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience, All the best
