Help! I’ve a lower ground floor flat that has suffered from some sort of water ingress, we’ve investigated and found a drain from next door near so am assuming it is this – however the neighbour has done all sorts of unregulated work to his building and being extremely obtuse – I’ve had someone in to investigate, but the neighbour is difficult and all drain people leave without doing anything.
I’ve now had a call from the tenant to say that he is ‘under water’ – I just don’t know who I turn to with this – is there a company who can carry out checks to see where the water is coming from, can the water be tested to see if it’s foul or rain? I’m sorry to sound a bit pathetic as I am a long time landlord but however careful I am with my own property I’m at a total loss when I have a rogue next door.
I have reported him to the council (3 years ago) for all the works he has done which are clearly without any sort of checks of building control – not out of spite but fear for my own property as we share a wall, I’ve had works done to his drain pipes, roof and had his drains unblocked but he’s not willing to do anything – the Council haven’t actually done anything except discover that he has done a whole lot more than I reported, but not made any enforcement notices (as if he’d comply with those) and really giving him a light touch (Lambeth – a pathetic excuse of a council).
Really would appreciate a pointer for this one.
