Have good relations with our neighbours - so far. Our old barn now shares a common boundary with a newish house (ie one of its walls). They have planted a border all along this wall. Problem is that there is some leaky/old guttering, which we are quite happy to deal with, but, there is a downpipe which vanishes into the middle of their bed. They want us to move the downpipe to the end of building, so that it discharges into an adjoining field (this belongs to the church). Although we are sympathetic do feel we arent responsible for their borders. What's the answer?
