Thankyou for reading my poem, and for your appreciation.

I don't think 'Dilbert' (teadrinker's nickname for her neighbour) has it in him to feel shame or the common decency to submit. He seems to have got into some sort of cycle of hatred against tea and her son which makes no sense to ordinary folk.

At this stage it would be counterproductive for Teadrinker to publish the poem. You would get a much better idea of why from reading her thread from the beginning - but I would say that if you do, you will find yourself drawn in by feelings of outrage on her behalf.

26 Sept @ 20:16

Same frustration here plus typing is in 'go slow' mode now too.

I suggest our posts are all dated within the text becaues terms like Yesterday and Today tell you nothing if the updating isn't working.

Testing 456!

I'm trying a test on this thread because I cant post anything on teadrinkers thread ('Neighbour cutting my hedge') which is stuck at "Yesterday @ 22:22" - but of course  this is not today's yesterday but yesterday's yesterday ... Er, or even before that...

Sorry seem to have lost my thread...

Oh yes: Emailed Daniel but his advice about clearing the Cache didn't seem to help iPad users who don't have a Cmd key. 

However, I found I can pick up other members' postings by clicking on specific members' forum names and viewing their posts there. Doesn't help proper forum discussion but does give a way of seeking out an expected response from any member who you think might answer your post. 

Hope that helps someone

Neighbour's Garden is Damaging our Wall

Gail Peacock said: Sadly because it's a party wall, he's entitled to do what he likes on his side, even though for example painting it with non breathable paint like masonry paint would damage the lime render we've had put on, and stop the wall from breathing again.

That seems tantamount to saying:

  1. his actions on the wall are allowed to affect your side of the wall, in particular - in this case its effectiveness as a barrier againt the elements (which compromises one of the purposes of a wall which is to protect from the elements) -
  2. but that your actions on the wall are not allowed to affect his side of the wall - in his case due to his 'asthetical response' to a finish that is not to his taste.

That seems too one sided (no pun intended) to stand in law.

My instinct would be to get a second opinion on that specific point in terms of your respective legal rights - party wall legislation is one thing but I would have thought that  protection of property from the actions of a-n-other would take precedence here.

"Unfortunately," I hear something reminding me, " the law has nothing to do with common sense!"  ... But I would try for a second opinion.

We're just keeping our fingers crossed that he doesn't decide to paint it with masonry paint and trap the water again

Unless I've misunderstood, the above refers to the outside surface of your kitchen wall. It's yours - not his - so he has no right to do anything to it that compromises your property.

i don't known whether you can still talk with your neighbour but if you can, I would be inclined to explain you are trying to resolve a damp problem and need nothing to be done to your wall to jeopardise your investigation of the cause.
