Wonder if anyone can advise me.
Neighbours have been knocking down their side of chimney breast in all rooms. Whilst carrying out this work the builders did not pay attention and large amount of building rubble full on my central hearing back boiler. My house was covered in black soot from these works including carpet and wallcovering. They have also demolished load bearing wall and inserted steel rsj into party wall.
They sent Corgi registered engineer to sort my back boiler, but he left me with a major gas leak from Wednesday to Monday when we realised that something wasn't right with the boilder. Luckily for us this is our dining room and not lounge, or the consequences of this could have been fatal!
1. Should they have served Notice under the Party Wall Act 1996?
2. If they should have served Notice, what can I now do?
3. Either way what sort of compensation would I be entitled to?
