    We've recently had some new houses built next door and there is a crack in our wall now. I have tried to add some photos. I will try again.
    Your opinions would be appreciated.

    Photos of the crack in context of the wall its in, is better than any close up.

    And the location of neighbouring walls and drains

    Was a party wall notice served?

    Sorry fellas, for not responding to your offers of assistance. My relative is now processing this problem through the insurance.
    If I can I will provide photos just for reference, but for now, I am concerned it may impact any insurance concern.

    I can tell you that the gap between my house and any new house was over 1 meter, and no party wall agreement was requested.
    There is a new manhole in the gap between the houses, but I do not know if there was a drain there before, or whether it is a new drain now.
