    Exactly my point. You approached the neighbour and had a chat, that’s neighbourly, you’ve made contact with an actual human. Put the council or Fire Brigade in to fight on your behalf and you wouldn’t have that, you’d have conflict.

    Exactly! Approach someone shouting and yelling the odds and it will not get you anywhere
    I've had a couple of those incidents as sometimes happens when kids fall out. I just shut the door on then and say come back when you can speak reasonably or don't bother knocking again.
    I usualy never got another knock but by one mum I have been vilified for being rude!!!! They are people who do not want reason just want a fight and they don't get it when their game backfires :)
    I find it funny realy.watching them stomp off with no resolution which they could have had with a different and calmer approach. (Didn't mean my son got away with anything tho!)

    Your house, did it let in a lot of the smoke?
    ( Lateral thinking - if smoke can get in = heat can get out = costing you money)

    No Janne it did not affect my home. It was while passing a property on the walk INTO town. I live on the edge the opposite way.
    I have learned today of several others living in the centre of town have "gone down" with breathing problems and bad chests.
    Read my first post properly!:)

    I did. You wrote the smoke covered the whole area.... :)

    Our first house in Sweden, we discovered that the top floor ceiling had huge cracks behind the wooden (picture rail? ) profiled bit between the ceiling and walls, along all outside walls..
    Neighbour did a grass and moss burn, and we got smoke coming into the house when the extractor fan was on.

    Ripped them out, made good. This lowered the oil bills substantially

    Glad you're on the mend. Hold off the wine until well, alcohol is a poison and no good reason for it until 100%. Quite a scare I reckon.

    You did the right thing with your neighbour. If you didn't do that and ended in conflict there's only losers. Btw don't you have to inform potential house buyers of any neighbour conflict if you sell?

    Thanks mate. I'm going to use the wine as a Xmas pressie. Wine makes me drunk!! ;)
    I think you are supposed to declare problem neighbours but if it's going to stop people buying your house and you realy wanted or needed to move...... would you? ????
    Anyway this chap is about 1/2 mile away and not realy a close neighbour. He has a couple of smashing dogs tho, so we bonded over them straight away!
