totally and utterly ignore this utter madman
call in the men with white coats
he needs a phychiatrist
stop fretting about such a stupid totally selfish ignorant self obsessed bully

anymore communications from his solicitor tell them all allegations etc are totally without any foundation and you will declare him a vexatious litiigant
and sue for compensation for stress and distress

Thankyou Mac for your response of "no"

However I was hoping for a few more opinions and wanted to know if anyone else thought the wall in question was party wall or not.

And whether there was any rules as to how close all my pipes can be to the wall in question and whether I'm in the wrong for putting them where they are.

And what I could maybe word in a letter regarding his demands of he's not happy where they are whether they are attached or not, which they aren't.

I thank everyone for their advice as this matter is making me ever so distressed and making me actually quite ill.

Hi keepfitgirl,

his sols have stated, on behalf of their client, that it's considered a party wall.

with no evidence to the contrary, in such circumstance the law would presume as much anyway.

which means it straddles the boundary and the external face stands wholly on your land.

by siting a drainpipe up against this part of the wall - your wall - you haven't committed a wrong.

if the pipe causes damage that's when he'd have cause to complain.

Kind regards, Mac

On the specific point of the downpipe from the gutter, whether the wall is deemed party or not is probably a moot point. The pipe is wholly in your airspace and has an absolute right to be there and be attached to that wall - some of the water it carries is coming from your neighbours gutters, an arrangement so common it could be considered universal, every terraced or semi detached property in the land will have it - or something very similar.

Edit: The neighbour, if he has any sense, should actually be demanding that the downpipe is properly secured. Although the pipe appears sheltered, the right wind from the right direction will see the pipe moving - with his own section of guttering most effected!!

If the neighbour or the charlatan surveyor or con artist solicitor persists with these outlandish demands, point out that if you do relocate the downpipe, it will be separated from his section of the gutter and will require him to provide his own downpipe on his land, you wont allow it in your airspace. The new downpipe will also have to discharge into a suitable drain or soakaway on his land.

Incidentally, I doubt that the wall is a party wall. We had a similar arrangement at a previous house (although we were the owners of the projecting property) and that was definitely not a party wall.

nothing to do with me

your responses are totally and utterly unhelpful in the extreme as per usual

the OPs neighbours are clearly bullies who having formally coceeded they are wrong about the wall and the fence are trying it on about a downpipe that serves both houses

It is a backslapping exercise in order to bolster ones position on the forum :D :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't indulge in backslapping and I don't have a "position on the forum" to bolster. I have had my share of (usually polite) disagreements in the past; in this case my "+3" was simply because I happen to agree with arborlad's comment.
