Joint rear wall

Recommended Posts

Need to fix a joint rear wall which is about to fall. We have agreed to 50/50 split on costs. The next door neighbor also wants to replace his back yard flagging which he claims was damaged due to the movement of the wall. Am I responsible for that too?

You need to find out who is responsible for the wall - most probably shown on the deeds of the property (downloadable for £4 from the land registry Mon-Sat).

Normally, that person is who bears the cost of replacement, but you have agreed differently - that may be good or bad ;)

If that persons wall has damaged someone elses property, then yes they are liable.

Funnily enough the council called me a week back about one of the properties that is next to mine. Same situation. They wanna do 50/50 too! I will have to check.

Axil - why is wall about to fall - could street trees be responsible? If so that is down to the council -but IME they will try to wriggle out of it.
