    Hoping someone can help as struggling to find anything online.

    We are getting an extension and a small part of the roof will overhang the side of our neighbours garage. (They have wasted space at the side that is not big enough to access) The neighbours are fine with this and also fine to allow access for any repairs etc but I want to ensure we get the appropriate documents signed.
    Does a party wall cover them agreeing to overhang the eaves and a deed of easement gives agreement to access land for repairs???
    Any help greatly appreciated!!!

    Not a party wall matter, it needs to be written into the deeds.

    Thanks Woody. Do you know if writing it into the deeds is by way of a ‘deed of easement’ of something different?

    As the boundary wall is not straight it will start much smaller to the max overhang of 200mm.
     
  7. sounds like a job for a solicitor.

    Yes, deed of easement or grant of easement, same thing.

    The deed is the document that describes the easement and rights/obligations it conveys. This could be several pages.

    Then the existence of the deed is noted on the Charges Register section of both property deeds.

    You will pay all costs.
