    is my neighbour trespassing when they work off my roof


    My neighbour has designed a new dormer window that only has 11 inches of roof left on their roof. The builder is now using my roof space to construct the dormer. The neighbour has refused to offer a Party wall agreement. What is my recourse?

    "Without permission from you it is considered trespassing."

    "Without legally challenging your neighbour, the best course of action would be to come to a mutual agreement that if any damage occurs to your roof during the works, that it will fixed back to its original condition at your neighbours expense."

    "If their dormer does not invade any of your roof they aren't actually doing anything wrong. The builder though does need your permission to work from your roof if they need to."
