A neighbour is erecting a fence in my garden as they say I have encroached on their land. This is a dispute but we are sick and letting them get on with it now as only a foot or two we will lose.

This leaves the back section of my fence behind theirs now. They have said they would not let us have this back as compensation for the trouble this has caused.

Do they have a legal right to not return this to us? They paid nothing towards this fence when we had it put up.

Thanks

This seems to be the point where it all went pear shaped - two fences with, possibly, an intervening hedge.

You can make two presumptions about a correctly erected boundary fence,(1) it is wholly on your land, (2) it is at the limit of your land - you can only make the first presumption about a wholly owned hedge.

Maintaining a hedge for a long time is not sufficient to claim ownership of it, you need evidence that that hedge was conveyed with your land, your neighbour needs the same evidence in their favour

The true value of a boundary feature lies not with how much they cost but how effective they are in defining the land of their owner. A boundary feature can be an elaborate wall topped with rampant lions costing thousands per metre to a single wire on driven posts costing pence per metre, both are worthless if not done correctly.

Arborlad ...there are not 2 fences

There was a hedge the OP installed a fence on their side of the hedge ....it is the neighbour who having gained land the hedge was on now wants more and more including a section of fence that was on the neighbours side of the hedge
