That has happened before - with mixed results!
Well if does, he does. I'm quite confident now that he's really messed up, so things are going to get a lot worse for him now.
What size of building is going to be erected?........the footings don't seem adequate for a two storey extension.
It's a single story 'conservatory' extension.
4.5m out from the house, 4.3m across, 3.6m max height, 2.6m eaves height.
Whatever is erected there it seems quite clear that the flank wall will (whether intended or not) at some point have to do some retaining of your land, if the neighbour/builder has a well thought out plan for this, all well and good - if not!!...........the quickest and best way to find out his intentions is to go and ask.
DPCs and damp penetration are all going to complicate matters.
I imagine that the flank wall will be absolutely right up against the boundary line of our houses, certainly he has now trimmed up the concrete 'stack' underneath the fence post in Image 4 in my OP so he can get as close as possible. Presumably the remaining gap will be back filled.
It's gone too far now for us to speak, I don't want a confrontation and actually I'm not interested in talking to him now.
I'm also aware of his opinion of me because of all this, he has a dreadful sense of entitlement and is basically the 'I'll do whatever I want' type. He could've learnt from the previous exchange regarding his proposed front extension and just showed an ounce of courtesy and consideration, but no. In fact he couldn't even be bothered to just stick a board down at the boundary line and concrete up to that, instead he ignores my explicit instructions and just does exactly what he wants.
One good thing about this is I've at least received support from several neighbours, some of whom that I'd never even met prior to this mess. Of course they can't really do anything to help me, although at least one will be complaining to the council about him working on the weekend.
