Hi all,

My dad lives in a semi-detached house with the shared down pipe being on his neighbours property. The neighbours did a loft extension and remodelling of their house and during this time they have drilled into my dads property and moved the down pipe to his side without asking permission. Is his neighbour allowed to do this without speaking to him? Please could you kindly advise on what to do next.

A wide photo of the existing would help.

Where does the bottom of the downpipe now go?
would you let your neighbour drill into your car? Without asking?
Well they've moved the shared drain pipe now, I'm asking if there is any guidance i.e. party wall act etc.
They did it while he was in hospital, and insist they are well within their rights to do so
If your neighbour wants to drill into your car, they'll probably do it without asking
