Fence on extension

Postby Maddened » Tue Jun 23, 2009 10:59 pm

Got a query. Not sure how I stand with this, so here goes..... We bought our semi in 1995, it has an extension on the back and there was a chain link fence attached to the back end of the extension wall, NOT THE SIDE of it, to the adjoining property. This side is the neighbours responsibility and they said they had an agreement with the previous owners to do this. They have since put a wooden fence with concrete posts lined up to the back wall of the extension and insisted they had permission. We have checked our title deeds and can not find this 'permission' and wonder if it can be removed. That they move it to the side/corner of the wall, which is where I would have expected to see it.

1. Has there been too long a time for us to request the removal and cut
our losses?
2. Can we request the removal if there is no written agreement and we
were not party to it until we were 'TOLD' about it!!

Permision given can also be permision refused

If theres nothing in your deeds and nothing in writing then they cannot simply attach there fence or post to your wall

they are trying it on ...........tell them they have no agreement with you
nothing in writing from previous owners so they must shift ir pronto

Sounds very simple, but is there not a time factor that can be considered here, as the fitting has been on the wall for years? Not acted before - through our ignorance and belief of what they are saying.

depends on exactly how many years and exactly what was agreed with the previous owners ...........contact them via the estate agent or their solicitors ( will be on the sale documents )

We have been here since 1995.The chain link fence was there when we moved in and up until last year. The property was empty for some time and it was purchased via the previous owners company for relocation purposes.

Now a wooden panel fence has been put up and the concrete posts are across 2 bricks of the extension back wall. When we said about it we were told they had permission to do this from the previous owner. We have read our documents and are in the process of getting the extension plans as there is not any written agreement we can see. There was also no mention of this at the time of purchase. Ignorance gets one into a lot of trouble to undo and there is not very much law on your side to help, but end up being victims of a very unfair behaviour.

Having had a lot of unpleasant hassle I am now ready to fight back and finish this nonsense, I am also conscious of the fact that there has been a lot of time this has been in place and am being careful when acting in this way.
