I own an ex LHA property which is a ground floor flat below a LHA owned flat, the LHA being the ground Landlords. The managing agents have issued a notice of intended works, under the Landlord and Tenant Act, of intended works that I must contribute too.

Basically the works are to externally clad the walls to improve thermal efficiency. My walls have already had the cavities insulated and current and previous tenants have always commented on how warm and cheap to run the property is. This naturally begs the question is the work necessary.

Further the works will spoil the exterior aesthetics by covering up the existing brickwork with rendered insulation slabs.

As I understand it they own the ground but I own the walls therefore can they legally touch my property?
