    overflow pipes drenching our patio

    not sure if this is totally the right forum for this but I have received excellent advice from here in the past so I thought I'd give it a try...

    we have purchased a ground floor leasehold flat in a council block. The overflow pipes from the two flats above us have been dripping into our patio for the last couple of years. Having contacted the council, they said we need to ask the people in the flats to fix their plumbing. The people said they would but they didn't and obviously won't.

    In desperation we have redirected the overflows into the water drain. The neighbour, who has always been hostile, has complained to them. The council are now saying that we must re-instate to allow the overflow to drip into our patio again.

    Surely it is not legal for our patio to be used as a place to dump other peoples excess water coming from faulty plumbing they refuse to fix. Even if their plumbing wasn't at fault I would still object to having, even the risk of having water come into our patio.

    It's a comical situation, we could be outside sitting having a meal on the patio and suddenly receive a good soaking from above, anytime without warning and from several pipes in different locations. Our patio is very narrow so are forced to stay relatively close to the walls at all times...

    Thanks in advance.

  • Planning permission
    by dizzymill
    I am wondering if anyone can answer my question please?

    There is a plot for sale in my area that has planning permission granted on it. The thing is, this was granted when the site was larger than it now is as the vendor has fenced a section of it off and built himself a log cabin style...

    The plans provided with the planning application will show the position and size of the house granted planning permission, as well as showing the extent of the land identified on the site plan.

    The planning permission would have taken into account the area available for garden, and parking...

    Hi Tipper. It was granted for one dwelling but vendor has since built the cabin and fenced off the plot he is selling saying it has planning. But the planning was granted for the original whole site before he built his cabin that he lives in .

    It probably depends on what the permission was for and how many dwellings, etc.
    Also when pp was achieved as they run out after 3 years in most if not all cases.

    You can check on the local planning online to see the details, drawings, dates, etc.

    No not too late. We had the same situation for our three holiday lets.

    We pressed the installer to register the new boilers with Gas Safe who in turn send certification to the local Building Regs which is what they are supposed to do upon installation, assuming they are qualified and 'Gas...

    Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but what are the circumstances to obtain a Buildings Regulations Certificate? For example building a house, an extension, fitting a new boiler, installing a new light fitting, replacing a light bulb etc?
    I currently rent out 2 properties and own

    Thanks for the advice all. I've had 2 boilers replaced by different installers over the last 6 years, but not received a Building Regulations Certificate from either one. I didn't ask the installers about it at the time as I was unaware of the need. Although they did provide Gas Safe Reports as requested,...

    This transaction only needs one document, a lease. A skeleton of the clauses needed:

    ·A demise of the additional land
    ·A statement that the terms of the lease are (mutatis mutandis) the same as the OP's lease except as expressly provided in the next clause
    ·Set out...

    Hi There,

    I live in a share of freehold ground floor flat (1 of 4 flats, 2 ground floor, 2 first) within a converted Victorian house and am looking to do a 3.5m extension into the garden. The garden is shared between the 2 ground floor flats and split down the middle by a fence. Each ground...

    Thank you for all your responses, good to know this is on the high side and we should be able to save some money. Do you have any advice on indicative costs (appreciate this might be a 'how long is a piece of string' kind of question). I've already messaged a few other solicitors.
