Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

Morning guys, Thanks for all your help and support. As soon as EA write to me I will write back to them setting out my position stating that it is my neighbour who is solely responsible for the root cause ie the failings of the installation and that they are under contract to install the septic tank...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

The new septic tank was installed in a different position to that of the old septic tank on the retained land Hi Howmuch, Ah ... that makes sense now. The price you paid for your house included the new septic tank, but shared, or for your use only? So it appears you paid, indirectly, for the new ta...

The original land was divided up when i bought my house but the original septic tank, which was on what is now my nei...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

Hi Collaborate, Thanks for the info, but as my only water supply comes from the water system, surely them cutting it off would be a violation of my rights to water? Would a judge even allow for the cutting off of a water supply to an occupied house (with kids living in it too) at this early stage (o...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

Hi Micky, Thanks again for your reply...although its blown my mind :shock: My solicitor didnt anything about the water system not being an easement. My understanding is that my neighbours cant restrict and or stop my water supply from the water system as that would breach of the covenant as well as ...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

Not sure if i already have said...but the letter which they sent me demanding the money already says i am obliged to contribute as per the wording in the easement.
So is that enough proof?

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

Hi Ukmicky I dont understand why or how could a new easement be required? My neighbours are required to supply me water from the water system which is on their land. They have decided to create more or less a new water system and decommissioned the old, when they could have simply renewed the old wa...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

It simply means that by law you are required to pay a fair proportion of the genuine cost of the upgrade That is not a back of a fag packet slip of paper from his 3 mates or relatives It must be a properly costed invoice complete with exact details if the work and should have been best of 3 profess...

So this is what i am asking for in my return letter to my neighbours solicitior. I would also like to see what has been done with my own eyes. I e...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

The wording of your easement means nothing in this case because statute law overrides your easement rights . You said the council ordered the works to be performed so if you and your neighbour wanted to continue to use it the upgrade had to happen. If the well had continued to only supply one resid...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

I should also mention that historicall...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

Hi guys, So solicitor said: - It would seem that the upgrade of the water system will come under renewal as stated in covenant. - She was surprised that no quotes were sent with the letter in the first instance, which she said will be frowned upon if it were to go to court. - She was surprised that ...
