    Damp proof course - whose responsibility?

    Hi,

    The wall of my neighbour's single story extension runs along our boundary. The extension was built in about 2003, without planning permission nor building regs, by a previous owner.
    Our garden rises towards the extension, and is above the level of the extenion's damp proof course. This has been the case since we bought the house (of which I have photographic evidence).
    At the back of neighbours garden, where the extension ends, there is an elevated bit of land (the same height as our garden where it meets the extension), with a deep trench between it and the extension. This suggests to me that soil was removed on my neighbour's side to make way for the extension.

    Is anyone here able to make an educated assessment as to who would be liable, should damp become an issue in my neighbour's extension?
