  • Water pipe in my hallway


    The water company was replacing stopcocks on my street and the workers knocked on my door after a while. They wanted to show me that my neighbour's supply pipe entered into my hallway along with my water pipe. We're both mid-terrace houses and it definitely isn't a shared supply. I only bought the house last year and there was nothing about this when my solicitor was doing her checks. The pipes are blue plastic so they can't be too old (the houses are 120 years old) and I have a feeling they both go to the back of the house and then his turns 90 to his kitchen (both are adjoining).
    I have no problem with leaving it there but I'm just wondering if I have any legal responsibilities and does he have any legal rights over it (i.e. can have my floor dug up to replace it at his expense)?
    apologies if this has been posted before but I can only find scenarios of shared supplies like this and I believe that is a totally different thing.

    Thanks in advance as I really can't justify spending a few hundred quid going to a solicitor for this at the moment.
