Will large shed built next to house wall cause damp?

Postby Charlotte2020 » Wed Oct 21, 2020 7:36 am

Hello, really hoping someone can help. My neighbours garden backs on to the side of my main house. (He is corner and I am end terrace) yesterday he built a fairly large Wooden shed/summerhouse which is very close to the wall on my home. I am now very concerned about it causing damp. Can anyone tell me how close he is allowed to build to the main wall of my house please? Thank you so much in advance

Hi charlotte2020
If you have cavity walls this should not be a problem.
