Hi, I own a 4 bed detached on a street built in the 60’s. On facing the houses each has a path of about 6ft between them BUT the path is owned by the house to the right up to the walls of the house to the left..
My neighbour has built a wrap round extension (no issue) BUT he has now started to build a wall (which I think is going to actually turn into a storage area the length of his house) which abuts right up to the exterior wall of my property. He has left just a tiny gap (around 2cm) but this means that if I have issues with this wall (ie damp) or want t0 to repaint it I cannot get to it at all. I had been hoping to re-render it in the next 2 years but this will be impossible.
I am aware of what he has done because I know the builder who rang me and told me what was happening and the builder said he had told the houseowner he could not attach any structure to my wall without my permission which is why there is the tiny gap. I had this issue with his grandfather who previously owned the house who had built a lean-to over this path physically attached to my wall and was storing items against my wall which caused damp issues and on the threat of legal action at that time meant he removed the wall.
However, the latest works are not attached to my wall. Does anyone know if I can do anything as eventually there will be a real need for a render or repointing of bricks on my wall?
