damage caused by neighbours actions

Post by gadily » Mon May 09, 2016 1:16 pm

I have this shed with boundary issues to do with the roof build.

since then ive been noticing rising water within the shed and been hearing running water for a while, I am sure the roof isnt leaking in as water issues have never been an issue until i changed the roof before the new change to it as the box profile roofing was dripping water from the metal.

I know its not a water main as the main water is 6' deep in that corner and has always been dry even with the water leak that was repaired years ago.

this was the photo taken at same time of the video it had got to stage it was a puddle of water on the floor of the shed that you could splash in.

on investigating the issue of water problems I found this

24 hrs after the hose pipe has been removed away from the back shed

this last photo shows the hosepipe actually turned off

now i suspect the water tubs to be tipped and refilled at back of the shed.

I also understand this can be classed to a number of things criminal damage, undermining the foundations by erosion and damage to property held within the shed building tools and electrical goods

Print a picture of the hose pipe onto card, write your neighbours address on the back, put it in a pillar box. You could even add stamp if you want there to be no argument about who holds the moral high ground.

Is it worth a call to the water company - hosepipes should not be left unattended unless your neighbour is paying for water on a meter. They might like to remind him of this - at least he will be paying for the water, which is not cheap!

Also check for any legal cover with house insurance etc, if you have it then let them handle it
