Hi
We also have a neighbour who told us he could come into our garden whenever he chose, as he "Had studied English Law". Well we have secured our garden, installed cctv and informed him that he must ask to come round at our convenience. He threatened us with his Insurance Company which we ignored. He will occasionally still try to annoy us which we ignore. I would recommend cctv. Coggy

Thanks Coggy and despair

I have contacted a CCTV company, but I know he will continue to make life very difficult for me. He tries to use legal jargon in his letters, I have looked across these forums (and the advice has been amazing) and found most of my questions are pretty similar.

My only question that I can't seem to get an answer for is whether he can erect a wall/fence and send me the bill

Thanks collaborate

I replied to one of his letters to advise him that he could not send me a bill to claim the full cost of erecting a fence, I even wrote that he should be aware that in such civil matters, costs are agreed before hand by parties if they are liable for any costs. He responded and I quote, 'be sure that if you choose to ignore my warning again, I will erect a fence and will be sending you the full bill for the costs. You now have two months from the date of this letter to comply'

I was thinking that if we put up the concrete post where the original post used to be (removed because it was unstable and could have collapsed) and fix a gate from the post to my property and lock it. That would be ok right? I mean as we could dig the foundation on my side, I wouldn't need to inform him of any works?



The important thing is that it is set at the limit of your land.

So putting it where the original post was should be ok? This was a marker of the boundary line

There is absolutely and positively no way that he can build a fence on your land and then send you a bill for the privilege - it's ludicrous!

your neighbour is talking out if his backside
its typical nonsense from bullies

have you carefully checked all mortgages
insurances
credit cards
union memberships

for legal expenses cover

Rest assured he cannot under any circumstance send you a bill for erecting a fence
on the contrary it is you who can bill him for every ounce of damage done and the costs of rectifying anything his builder or he removed / altered or damaged

Thank you all. I must say you are all making me feel better about my situation.

I wonder why he thinks he can erect a fence on the boundary line and feels he doesn't have to give me any notice and that he can bill me for this work! Re-reading my posts - I see how ridiculous it sounds. If he chooses to commence work - should I call the police?

I also fail to understand why he thinks he can access my land, he would not take to kindly me sauntering into his garden.

Bullies live in a fantasy world
they only believe what they believe
they often wont even believe a judge
seriously your best bet is to restore your fence lock the gate and sell up and move fast

because clowns like this will try every trick in the book to annoy

I would like him to pay for the fence that he removed. Maybe not sell - just move and rent all my rooms out to students :mrgreen:

you should be able to recover the cost of replacing the fence via small claims court
especially if you have all his letters notes on his shouting etc
and involve the police over his harassment and threats as evidence

While you should be pursuing him for the costs of anything of yours that he has removed, which seems to be a gate and (shared) post, your main concern at the moment must be to secure your land............did you not think something was amiss when he installed a gate where none should be - how long has the gate been there?
