If your neighbour is snarfing your water supply, you may consider taking your own advice and cleaning out your gutters on the same day. Luckily, there are several online services that will take care of the job for you. In fact, they have a number of other services that you might find useful, ranging from house cleaning to garden cleaning. And when it comes to guttering, you will also be pleased to learn that they have a number of guttering products that have been specially designed to withstand harsh environments.

One of the most interesting aspects of having a neighbour is the opportunity to exchange ideas and come to agreements. Generally, it’s best to be a friendly neighbor. If you have a similar driveway or you can’t seem to reach an agreement on a common topic, consider going legal. This is the only way to guarantee that you’ll have a claim to the winnings. And, once you’ve reached a settlement, you’ll no longer have to worry about a potential legal action.

If you’re wondering whether you should bother or not, you should ask yourself the question, “can you really do that?” In other words, can you block your neighbour’s guttering? Well, this is a question that has been asked many times. But what are the right answers? Let’s take a look.

First, you should determine which edifice is the culprit. You should check the deeds to see if it was a single property or several. If it’s only one, you can easily ask your solicitor to put a boundary fence in front of it. If it’s several properties, you’ll want to check out the neighbours’ neighbours to see if there’s a problem. You can also look into a private deed to ensure that the edifice will be protected for the long haul.

Next, you’ll need to figure out if your neighbour’s downpipe is blocked or if you should install a bypass to divert the water to the field upstream. This is where the overhang easement comes in. If you do this, you’ll be in a better position to enjoy your neighbour’s water supply. This is especially true if you live in an area that is known for drought. You could also ask if your neighbour is happy to pay for the bypass and, if you’re lucky, you might even be able to avoid paying altogether. If it’s a shared downpipe, it’s a win-win.

Finally, you should also take into consideration whether your neighbour is the kind of person who is going to bother you with a questionable booze up. The biggest issue with this is that you’re likely to have to take the fall if your neighbour is drunk or in the middle of a fight. And, if you’re both a bit tipsy, you might not notice the small print. The other stipulation is that you should have some form of proof that your neighbour is a responsible partie.
