HI, can anyone advise?
My neighbour is building an extension to the side and rear of his house. He has built on the boundary wall and now refers to it as a new party wall which will be to our advantage if we wish to do a single storey extension in the future.
Our problem is that the capping stone on top of this wall is coming right over into our space. We have asked him to move it back in line with the wall but he refuses. we have been told that this could lead to problems for us in 2 ways.
Firstly if we decide to build a 2 storey extension then we would have to pay the cost of removing these capping stones. Secondly, if we decide to sell the house, it could lead to problems with subsequent buyers.
Does our neighbour have the right to overhang our property?
Thanking you in advance.
