Unsafe Boundary Wall

Unsafe Boundary Wall

Postby Derek Chilton » Thu Mar 31, 2005 9:40 am

Hi, I hope someone out there can provide some advice.

Some 23 years ago (before our ownership of the property) our neighbours engaged in a deed of exchange with the then owner of our property. These neighbours have remained in situ and were party to this deed.

One of the terms of the deed was that they would erect a wall between the properties. Although not specific, the inference of the deed is that the wall was to be constructed on their land. No specific undertaking to maintain the wall is made in the deed.

The problem we now face is that the wall has become very unstable (not surprising after 23 years!), we have 3 young children and our concern is that, if it were to fall, it could could serious injury or death.

Unfortunately, relations with these neighbours have deteriorated to such an extent that they remain steadfastly unaproachable.

In view of the circumstances, what are my rights and options?
