The question is the previous owner has deceased and now the new owners have taken up after nearly 2 years of having the property where we left off with the previous owner that has deceased, we know they can do this but is there a time limit that they have to get the boundary wall problem solved by?
2) What rights do we have, eg if we do not want to do nothing about it, do we have to get it resolved or can we just leave it as it is, in other words its not been put on our house deeds?
3) If we do have to get it resolved they have stipulated via their solicitor that they want us to go ahead and have it put on our deeds (registered) but have asked for all these other conditions to be put in place:
i) Until they build the extension that we are responsible for the wall on their side, repairs etc, but we don't want to be as they have nightmare tenants and the kids are forever skate boarding up the wall etc, so why should we pay for damage, can we say they pay themselves?
4) If we do have to go ahead and get the boundary wall work we undertook put on our deeds can we stipulate conditions like:
i) If they build an extension that they soundproof the wall, and how would we say it, has we would want it to be really soundproof and paperwork to prove it?
ii) The above clause about the wall that in the meantime they are responsible for it
And just leave it at these 2 conditions or should we have more and what would they be?
Also would we be liable to pay for their solicitors fees or do they have to pay their own, what about our fees if we instruct a solicitor would we be responsible for our fees, or can we do this on our own?
