Where is the actual boundary ?. Check you land registry
entry for the T-marks. If his external wall is the boundary
then he cannot do this, but if he has a strip of land, even if it
is only 6 to 9 inches to allow for overhang at roof level, then
its more tricky.
Is this balanced flue output below 2 metres from the ground ?.
If so it needs a 'basket' to comply with Part J. If one wasn't
fitted then the installation was possibly not done by a
'Corgi'. Is it a Gazco fire or a condensing boiler, replacing
something like a Baxi back boiler ?.
If your neighbour were to beg to differ the question might become what
evidence you have to support the wall being the boundary. The fact that
you park close to it doesn't mean you own the land you park on.
reply-to address is (intended to be) valid
Does the requirement to fit a cage around the terminal if less
than ?2 metres above ground still apply to a condensing flue ?
Where does the condensate go ?.
This might be a Gazco balanced flue gas fire, if so the
external diameter of the flue will be 6 inches, not the
4 inches that is typical for a modern condensing boiler.
Gazco make a gas fire behind glass, that is inset into the
cavity wall, and has a short stubby balanced flue projecting
out the back. This cannot be redirected with a flue extension
unlike their other gas fires that look like free standing
If the distance a modern flue take up makes that difficult, hope he's a
very careful driver. And if it did, surely his van would block the
driveway? If wide enough for two cars or vans side by side, same applies.

I'd not imagine so, as apart from the legality, it is probably only a matter
of time till something hits it, assuming its at ground level. I know that
down the road from me there is a public right of way between a house and
some common land, and they put in a flu in the side wall and the council
made them fit a right angle device and mount it higher up as it was at head
height as you walked down the path.
