Hi, hope someone can advise on this. I am a leaseholder in a block of six flats owning a top floor one. With this flat comes the front garden.

Back in the middle of the year the housing association fitted a new condensing boiler to the flat below us (ground floor) and installed the pipe which carries the condense waste (acidic) into our front garden. I have made the housing association aware on several occasions that they have trespassed and have no authority to put this pipe discharging into our front garden flower bed.

I spoke with their local neighbourhood housing officer two weeks ago who assured me that she would have this rectified and moved.

Last week I sent her an email stating that if this pipe was not removed by Thursday 26th October that I would take further action and escalate the complaint.

My question is that how do I stand legally on this and what further steps can I take to get the pipe removed?

I know that I shouldn’t remove the offending pipe myself as this is part of the workings of the boiler.

Hi everyone.
update...the pipe in question was removed and the wall made good one or two days after the Thursday deadline that I gave them so all is good now. The HA even called me to make sure the work had been carried out!
