My neighbours house has his garage on the fence boundry line and will have the fence on either side.
Query is that they have a drain pipe from the garage roof that comes on my side of the garage wall. Is this allowable as most houses I have seen have the pipe at the rear of the garage.
Wouldn't want my side dug in years to come if they have a problem with the drainage?

My inexpert opinion
If your neighbour’s garage is on the boundary, then you don't want anything on your side but a smooth clean wall. I assume the council is asking for your comments. Tell them you would like the downpipe moved so it's not on your property. Not only is it an encroachment, but it reduces the look of your place.

Any wall on a boundary with a roof slope towards it must be constructed with the guttering located within the boundary i.e. a box gutter behind a parapet wall.
Nothing is allowed to encroach past the boundary line under any circumstances.

I currently have this situation at them mement, and ourneighbour has put a box gutter in next door, so the has done it all by the book.
NO PIPES, NOT GUTTERS, NO STORMWATER, NO NOTHING on your side of the land. Dont even giive them an inch to budge on in this instqance, it can have severe ramifications down the track.

It makes sense though. I can’t see any other purpose for the pipes in that location and all the neighbours have covered theirs. But I want to be sure before covering them.
