There are five manhole covers on my driveway but the drains they cover are not to my property. I now want to re-surface my driveway and I've been quoted six thousand pounds. 1250 pounds of this is to deal with the manhole covers. Yorkshire Water sent someone out to look at them, but all they have done is replaced one cover that was cracked and therefore dangerous. I could put up with the drains and covers if Yorkshire Water was prepared to contribute to the cost of setting them in the driveway properly. They are saying they are not prepared to do anything. The drains in question serve our next door neighbour and three other houses going the other way. Does anyone know if there is any way I can force the issue?
we are having an extension built and a fork lift truck driver had no choice but to access our property by first going on our neighbours driveway. whilst doing this his back wheel caught their manhole cover (which was loose/slightly damaged to begin with) and it lifted slightly. when the neighbour reversed out of the driveway a few hours later, the manhole cover fell down the manhole and left a big hole at the top of the drive with about a 20ft drop. our neighbour and ourselves are now blaming the fork lift truck driver but they are not accepting responsibility as they said the cover was loose before they went on it and can see by google earth images that it wasn't in perfect condtion. who is liable for this?
