    Responsibilty to neighbour roof

    Roofers

    My neighbour is replacing his roof, as we are terraced property they have split the houses in half. I have mentioned a buttering gutter to protect against weather, covering the join area, can anyone advise if any building regulations are in place covering the installation of buttering gutter, as they will start retiling next week

    "Hi

    If they are changing the whole more than likely they would fall under new building regulations which would involve engaging in with building control

    At the very least they should make sure whatever they are doing to the abutment with your property that you are happy with the solution

    Kind Regards

    If the same tiles are going on then simply retile over & this will again weather your roof"
