Bonding gutter installation

Can any body tell me the standard or regulations when replacing both roof and felt on a semi detached property? Is fitting a bonding gutter possible without compromising next doors roof? My felt appears to have dropped on my side where the neighbours have had their roof done.

"To fit a bonding gutter correctly you do have to compromise the neighbouring property as the bonding gutter has to go underneath yours and their tiles/slates. As long as their tiles/slates are re-installed correctly after fitting the bonding gutter there should be no issue."

"Unfortunately, to install the bonding gutter correctly you have to take part of the joining roof off. A partition wall agreement is a legal agreement between neighbouring properties for regulation."

"Felt isn’t meant to be tight it is meant to sag for airflow but if ur felt is sagging down where the bounding gutter separates the two properties then they have taken the easy option don’t worry tho the bounding gutter will hold all water out u should have no problems"

"the felt should be over lapped by a rafter so the fact that yours has a bit of sag aint gunna cause an issue, but if next door has hired a roofer and they have left you feeliing un happy about your roof they need to come correct it"
