It sounds odd that you have no rainwater drainage but it is common for terraced houses to share down pipes. However if its causing a problem I would ask your neighbour first, if they say no then you are no worse off than you are now. Perhaps offer to replace their guttering too, the cost would be far less than digging a very deep soak away which sounds like your other option, but without seeing it it is impossible to say for sure.

Drainage Problem, really appreciate some advise

Hi

We live in a mid terrace house, the end two houses have drain pipes, our house however has no drainpipe.

We never really thought about it until very recently when we got someone out to price up for a conservatory and to replace the guttering and fascias. He pointed the lack of drainpipe issue out to us because our garden does have bad drainage. He did mention the possibility of connecting so that we share with the neighbour, and asked how well we got on, they have only just moved in a couple of weeks though, so not sure how to approach the subject.

Is there any other way?

Any advise would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Dee

PS The conservatory guy did say a soakaway wouldn't be enough.
