Party fence wall - plants and shrubs

Postby Quaestio » Tue Sep 27, 2016 4:38 pm

Hi, I am the owner of a private lane that leads to my property. On the left and right of the lane I have two party fence walls (owned by my respective neighbours). One of them has now put ivy at the lane's corner and it reduces visibility when trying to drive out of the lane into the main road. Can he do that?
thanks for your help

If it encroaches onto your land, which it does from the sound of it, then cut it back.

It must have been growing a little while if you only now notice that it is affecting your view

Thanks for the reply.
He just put it, brand new but quite mature, that's why it sticks out. Is he legally entitled to do it?

either he is not thinking about your sightlines or he is spoiling for a fight by causing harassment/nuiscance

if it's been planted on his land, yes.

that said, you can lawfully cut it back to the limit of your land (ie your side of the fence).

Kind regards, Mac

That's a bit contradictory, they're either wholly owned by the respective neighbours (which is best) or they're in shared ownership (which is seldom as good)..............either way, anything growing on or over your land can be removed. Was the planting of the ivy an innocent act or is there a bit of history here?
