Pisces, I believe your best course of action is to complain about the issue in writing to your urbanisation president and/or vice president asking them to sort out this problem. You can tell them that you have made an attempt at resoloving the issue with the other party but this has not worked. Your...

I think you all know that the police are likely to win..... they nearly always do. They have a little trick up their sleeves called the law. This is used to great effect when someone causes criminal damage.

The title plan shows the boundaries of all properties in the block splitting the rear gardens equaly with the boundary running from the party wall of each house.

Well presumably the fences are where they were when you and your surveyor viewed the property and your solicitor asked you to confirm that the plans identified the extent of the property that you were buying ?

Well I certainly couldn't live without my chocolate, champagne and occasional smoked salmon. These represent absolute essentials. :roll: I'd consider things like chips, bacon butties, Yorkshire pudding, tripe and baked beans to be non-essential although I expect thats not the case if you live in Yor...

Soakaways are not generally very successfull. Their performance is dependant on a number of critical factors like size, infill, ground composition, water table etc. But X3 into one just compounds any issues especially with a heavy downpour following a few days/ weeks of rain. Its best to have piped ...
