Hi, since I stay on groundfloor in a residential colony, my first floor neighbor wants to access shaft from my groundfloor.
First floor neighbor also has access to shaft from their own floor through kitchen and bathroom window which they have closed.
They want to come to my groundfloor to access shaft area. They said workmen can't come from roof to do repair work. Shaft is a common area which is accessible to all owners of the house.
But my groundfloor is not a common area. When I stopped they said they have legal right to access shaft from my groundfloor. They threatened me that they will make things hard for me.
When this house was built 20yrs ago, builder had borewell made, my first floor neighbors drill water from borewell every now and then, to do drilling, hole was already made in my balcony. I want to stop them to access my balcony plus it's illegal to use borewell.
What can I do? Last is the leakage of ceiling from their floor comes to our floor to which don't listen? What can be done in this case too? Plus who bears their ceiling repair expenses?
1. Shaft is common area, like pathway is common area, but you cannot have access to pathway through your neighbor’s house. Hence first floor owner cannot came to ground floor for using shaft. Proper access is provided from his kitchen and bathroom.
2. Your balcony is your private space, he cannot use it for any purpose.
3. Leakage from first floor is health hazard causing lung problems.
4. He is trying to bully you. assert your right against all above violations. You take him to drag him to Court and teach him a lesson.
