Dispute details:

Neighbours builder fixes dormer extension to my single brick chimney!

In April 2022 the neighbours started party wall works and ignored all the legislation surrounding this. I informed building regulations who told me they intended to demolish my chimney which is not shared to build the dormer extension. Instead they raised my chimney without my permission or consent. The builder damaged my chimney and roof. He then got permission to build the dormer from BC. He encroached my boundary and made the chimney part of the dormer extension as a wall. So now we can No longer use the gas fire connected to my chimney. No roofer will repair my chimney because it is connected to the dormer extension. As a consequence the neighbours have been harassing us and we have had to install cctv cameras. The work is bad and water from the guttering goes inside the neighbours window directly below. The rain water continues to fall into our garden as well. We cannot use the gas fire because of the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Attempts to resolve dispute:

My father attempted to talk to the builder who said to him if the chimney collapses then just claim under your insurance.

Response to accusation (by accused):

As Builders started work started in April 2022 and planning permission was grant before work was commenced. The inspector carried out the usual visits and advised where amendments need to be made to the work to ensure building regulation compliance. During one of the visits the inspector requested to raise the chimney for the dormer to be built. The inspector spoke to the neighbors and they agreed at the time that they were happy for the chimney to be raised as they use it. The work was carried out with the approval of the neighbors at the time. The work would not have been able to commence without prior permission, therefore it is evident that the neighbors did agree for the work to continue. . All work was done with the permission of the neighbors and passed by the building inspector. The neighbor has raised an issue about rain water going into their garden, It can be confirmed no work has been carried out to the guttering. All work was carried out and completed in accordance with building regulations and passed by the building inspector. The issue is between the two neighbors, they have fallen out with each other and un-necessarily involved my building company which has nothing to do with their own personal disputes. The neighbor is now saying that the roof is an issue, this should have been raised before work was commenced and also they should have said it is an issue when we asked for permission. Due to their personal issues with the neighbor they are trying to cause trouble for them and also bringing my company into this matter. ATTEMPTS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES: it states the father had spoken to us and we said claim under insurance- this statement is incorrect. I did speak to the father and explained at the time when works were being carried out, your daughter agreed for the following works to be completed. If you have any issues, you should speak to inspector as he passed all the work. Therefore as an overall, the work has been completed and passed in accordance with building regulations. No issues were raised whilst the work was being carried out or before it commenced.

Counter Response (by plaintiff):

Everything the builder has said is fiction, the neighbours have not received their building certificates. Don't hire this incompetent tradesman.
