My neighbour’s summer house is causing me the most disgusting problem in my garden – I have no idea what to do | The Sun
A WOMAN has been left debating what to do after her neighbour's summer house caused a massive issue in her garden.
She took to Mumsnet's Am I Being Unreasonable? forum to explain the situation, in a post she titled: "To ask neighbour not to use their 'tiny house'."
"My neighbour has a huge house and a small additional dwelling in her back garden, we think it's used when family and friends come to stay," she wrote.
"It's pretty small like a studio so couldn't really be lived in long term.
"It's not attached to the main house. She has 5 bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, 1 teenage boy so space isn't an issue."
She continued to explain that they'd now discovered that "all the dirty sewage & water from this studio has been draining across our property for the last 3-4 months".

"It filters through a large garden (hers then ours) and our retaining wall then across our garden (gravity!)," she continued.
"It has taken her over 2 months to get a draining guy to look at it, it took him about 15 minutes to find the issue (yes we have been continually reminding her)."
However, despite having the problem looked at, things still aren't fixed.
"This morning I'm disappointed to see another stream of water across our patio," she said.

"I think they shouldn't use the water in the studio until the problem is fixed.
"Am I being unreasonable to ask her not to use the studio?"
In the comments section on the post, people were overwhelmingly in favour of the woman asking her neighbour not to use the studio.
"Tell her that it needs fixing immediately and the space cannot be used until it's fixed," one insisted.
"Definitely contact environmental health to inform them raw sewage is being discharged from their property onto yours," another suggested.
"That is absolutely disgusting and unacceptable," a third wrote.
The woman then returned to the post to add: "Thanks for all the comments, I'm on to our insurance company in a couple of hours.
