Hi all, I wonder if any of the more legally minded here could help…
The house next door to one of my renters appears to be vacant, maybe going through probate I’m not sure..
Several roof slates have slipped from their roof at the rear and have lodged in the guttering pushing it away from the soffet. This has resulted in the guttering pouring water all down my walls with inevitable saturation and a damp patch in the bedroom and living room.
I’ve I put several notes through the door but to no avail. I then considered paying for the guttering to be re-fixed myself however the problem is the property is a terraced property and 3 stories high.
I had a roofer take a look at it but he said its too high to fix from a ladder, which is fair enough, so a scaffold would be needed, and as the property has no rear access then the scaffolding would have to be passed in its entirety over the top of the house which means re-fixing the guttering is not going to be a cheap or straight forward job!
I’m not sure where is stand, the damage is getting worse day by day.
Can I apply through the courts and put a charge on the house to cover my repairs?
Any pointers greatly accepted..
