The scenario is, Mother is 70 yrs old and knows nothing about the PWA. I also know very little
Her neighbour, who is a complete moron built an extension some 4 yrs ago. He used a dividing wall between the houses at the rear to take his extension roof higher. this was from a nine inch solid brick wall
I have now learnt that there was no PWA notice served on mother and she has never given him permission to build off the wall or signed anything.
She has since had her house painted and the painter has realsied that the nextdoor extention has gone over the dividing line by about 8 inches (with over hag of roof) It seems the person has built dircetly on the 9 inch solid dividing wall.
I realise he has breached the PWA in the first place, is there a good case for getting him to take it down? or adjust it as it will have consequences when selling. Also, what is the likely outcome, is it worth bothering about?
I am thinking about taking it to a Solicitor to look at but thought I will see if anyone has any anecdotal tales with good advice before spending thousands on a legal eagle.
