Hi Nigel. I want to add breeze blocks to a joint wall. There is no privacy between my own and our neighbours house. There already is a wall of 6 breeze blocks high and I wanted to add another4/5 high.My neighbour the other side did this and just went. ahead and I had no problem as it was a similar situation.He paid for it himself.I just wanted to know if I would be allowed to build the wall higher and pay for this myself.I do not know the neighbour as he is never there,I think he lives in the uk and occasionally letís his house.Its just that if I managed somehow to tell him of my intentions and he disagreed then that leaves me with no privacy.What do you think ..kind regards palmtree

Hi Palmtree normally the wall belongs to one or another, if its just yours then you can raise it, but there is a height limit, that you can only go up too... if its his, he might welcome you paying to raise it, but you must get his permission first.

As far as I am aware the wall is jointly owned i.e. each property owns half
the wall.

I would certainly ask the other owner for permission first to avoid any issues.

I believe Palmtree has his deeds so that shouldn't be an issue but am not
sure if planning permission would be required.

Cheers

Steve

Agreed always best to get permission and stay on good terms with neighbors, Im pretty sure there is a height limit on dividing walls, between property's.

Can the foundations take the extra weight? What about trellis and plants?
11 breeze blocks high comes to over 8 feet.

Nothing stopping you putting a fence on top as long as it is mounted on your side of the wall...

Max height of joining properties is 1.8m (or 6'). either build with blocks or add a screen bolted to your side of the wall. I doubt you neighbour would object.

Hi palmtree

Do you have the deeds to the property? If not I expect the planners will not issue a certificate of approval when they inspect the property.

(Similar situation with Cypriot in Limassol who contacted me. He had to reduce the height of his wall before he could get Title Deeds.)

Regards

Best thing is a wooden partition with brackets your side. Then it can easily be taken down if necessary, (then put back later😎)
