If it is on the other building it may be done in the hope you haven't taken any photos yet, and now... so you can't

Please diarise that the odd job has been and what time you spoke to him. If can remember his trade name or whatever, this will also add to your evidence

quick update, water board have sent an engineer with listening equipment, there is indeed an underground leak in the supply pipe so they have issued an order for the repair.

sadly, water company now say they can do nothing as this is the supply pipe but the leak is internal to their property. the council also say nothing they can do and has to be sorted out by homeowner, - who we know is unreliable, so now can only try writing again, can a small claims court make him repair it???

I would be doing a small claims on him for the damage to my property. Nothing like several 5000.00 claims to focus his attention. You might end up the owner of that property by default, if he doesn't cough up and repair the damage.

Terminator would be the best to advise you on this one as he is the housing expert

Sad news
I read an article last year of how MP's are considering passing laws that will enforce a home owner to do repairs where it is causing damage to a nieghbouring property.

Never heard anymore since.

There is defiantely a needf for more action to protect property.

thanks for all the postive and helpful comments. EH have been out and say it is nothing to do with them although it is clear I am on the receiving end of the damage, to me, if someone came along and vandalised my property I could ring the police but in my situation I can only beg the owner to do the repairs. the water company have sent out an engineer who states it is the main supply that has a leak but is under the property so they cannot get involved as 'internal' to the property and not 'outside', if outside they would repair and pass on the bill. I take on board the possibility it may not be the 'fault' of the owner. all evidence so far suggests it is the result of changes made internally to convert and the failure to fix it to date, this has now being going on for atleast five years. I will write again stating I will be issuing an N1 but how can I know he has fixed it???
