We have bought a property which is in a block of eight houses, we have not formed a community yet as it has not been handed over by the builder. We have a problem with the end house which is attached to the communal pool, he has had two gates put into his garden directly into the pool area making it looks as though he owns the pool. We asked the builders to sort it out but even though they were furious he had altered the walls they are not willing to do anything. One of the neighbours has approached the owner direct but he can see nothing wrong in what he has done. Can you advise us what action we need to take to sort this out.

As an owner of a property which is regulated by the Horizontal property law, you in your own name can take legal actions against the neighbour who has installed the two gates into the pool area, but also as part of a community without necessity of an authorization.

However it would be advicable to check your Title deeds before taking any legal action.

We remain at your disposal to any further matter you may require.
