Neighbour and Water Supply
Iím hoping someone can offer some advice.
I currently lived in a row of houses for around 7 years. The row of houses actually used to be offices but was renovated by a now closed builders business.
Around 3 months ago the house next door was sold and during the last 3 months the new resident
has been doing some major renovation work.
During this time he has found out that his property has an ongoing flooding issue and enlisted the help of Yorkshire Water and a Plumber to try and solve this problem.
When this was checked they found out that the he had a direct link to the water supply but his property had adjoing pipes to over households. In essence his water supply his feeding everybody elses . The new resident is blaming the builders who originally did the work which is probably a fair assessment.
He has since sent a letter to all affected households that he intends to cut the adjoining pipes on the 2nd November which will in effect leave everyone affected without a water supply. Bearing in mind I have a 13month old baby and no way can I not have a water supply.
I have spoken to Yorkshire Water and they have told me they had advised him not to cut the pipes but because itís a private matter there isnít anything they can do to stop him. They actually asked me to get in contact with Environmental Health.
So Iím wondering what exactly my options here are. I have spoken with my new neighbour and he is going to go ahead with the work no matter. I have also discussed the my other neighbours who will also be affected and they are equally as concerned as I am. I can't contact the original builders because they no longer exist either.
Its beginning to look like my only option here is to a direct water supply but this could be very costly and at the moment I donít know how long this work will take.
May be he is invading your private property which is a legal offense you can report it.
