Neighbour's outbuilding within my boundary in state of disrepair?

Charles - the neighbour has right of access across the garden to the outbuilding. Said building is on the opposite side to the party wall. It is a row of terraced properties and the outbuildings were toilets, coal stores etc. That is why the building is on my land as there is no access directly to next door. Thankfully, we no longer need our toilets emptying at night! However, the problem remains. Can I offer to buy the 10' x 4' bit of land and building and have it added to my deeds? What would I need to do and would it be expensive?

Mike - I could offer to repair it although if it were possible to buy the small plot that would sort it once and for all.

Thank you both for taking the time to comment, it has been useful getting another's perspective.... Read More

Neighbour's outbuilding within my boundary in state of disrepair?

Thank you for your comments. It isn't a party wall, the whole building is in my garden on the opposite side to the party wall.

I take your point Mike, my need is greater than hers!... Read More

Neighbour's outbuilding within my boundary in state of disrepair?

Hi Neil. The building was 1 property originally then split into 2. When this happened the outbuildings were split and the neighbour has access rights to their building which is now on my property. My solicitor told me about all this and it wasn't a problem until the brickwork started to fail and I asked the neighbour to repair or remove. Therein lies the problem. She refuses to do anything blaming a tree for causing the damage so is there anything I can do?... Read More

Damp and Mould Issues in Terraced Property

Very helpful, thank you. I shall certainly contact the surveyor. I did notice the chimney breast is wall papered and the tenants reported it had 'been filled in'. The property used to belong to the next door neighbour so the information came from the horse's mouth, so to speak. Hmm! Food for thought!
