    No further clarity. Builder going to have to open up on central location of garage to ascertain. My hearts breaking here as dont have the money if worse case comes through

    You might be surprised with some of the new type builders that are out there and i'm being 100% serious, but I also understand what you're saying.

    The fact that this builder checked before just assuming everything was grand, I'm hoping they're old school :D

    Builder has opened up across several sections of the garage. 70% (basically below original garage) has foundation, the rest doesn't. They have also built the first floor on top of the original boundary wall which isnt good either.

    Just to add, this is my plan - really appreciate thoughts so i can get some sleep tonight!

    Get an my own engineer out to see what options are (will be early next week)
    Contact solicitor for some advice (tomorrow)
    Get engineer out who signed Opinion of Compliance (post above 2 points)
