We have an unconsented sewer pipe of our adjacent neighbours running diagonally through our land.
This pipe has no permit, no consent, no easement on our property title. We never knew about it.
It also fails NZ pipe standards with cracks and joints dislodged and is contaminating our land.
Watercare claims its not bad enough to do anything about it.
It is difficult to get meetings with them over many months.
Because we wish to build a family home on our private land Watercare are claiming we have to pay for re route of this unconsented, no permit, no consent, no easememt failed end of life pipe at time of build/consent.
It has no permit from council, there is no easement on our property file.
Has anyone one else had similar issues and how did you approach it?
Any recommendations , and experiences dealing with them.
