Re: maintenance work on unadopted private road

Maintenance does not mean improvements. What is the road made up of now? If for instance it is a gravel road that has become potholed and rutted then to maintane it the work would technicley be filling in the holes and ruts. If the owner if looking to improve the road above the base standard then (d...

Re: Neighbour reduced my bay tree to a stump without my perm

You admit you don't own the land in question but have become acustomed to having it as your own.

Was the tree overhanging the path or other area used by they other leaseholders?

Is ther a photo we can see?

Re: Cautionary tale.

(((( I have been advised to avoid this confrontation )))) Oh yes and was this advice given by some it doesn't effect? What does this person think the result will be? That you will both live happily ever after with her encroaching your privacy and garden with her open window? Block it off now now now...

Right to Light

I was always under the impression there was no right to light but a friend recently said that the law on this had been changed. Does anyone know if this is right and what it entails? She was talking about a row of conifers that were relativly close to a building and shaded a garden a lot. So I'm not...

Re: Cautionary tale.

I totaly missed where it said the windows open outwards lol Either inward or outward opening I agree with the "block it off now" with a fence or something is the best and at this point only option. A 6'4" fence two inches away from her window is a must to preserve your privacy and show her she is ou...

Re: Neigbour's New Entrance - ROW

Is ther already a dropped curb? If ther isn't then he cannot just build on on a road he does not own or have driving access on. If there is a path or curb, make the curb larger or more pronounced. Put a row of larg boulders or obstacles in the way so that he cannot drive over it. A nice flower or sh...

Re: Laws regarding fence design/construction

Hi catapult1, Everyone is so stuck on the 'you don't have to replace if you don't want to' mantra that everything else gets ignored. On what grounds would the neighbour be suing me if I chose not to erect a barrier on the edge of my land? Kind regards, Mac Loss of use and enjoyment of amenity. He h...

Re: Laws regarding fence design/construction

I would just like to say something on the subject of fences and fence owners responsibility. I have a friend who moved into a house (it is rented by a private LL) that at the time had a fully enclosed fenced garden and they chose this house partly because it had one as they have a dog. The back nei...

Re: Trespass?

Often these covenants were put in by the developer to make sure the place looks nice while selling and it is only the developer that can enforce. It can be the same with caravans and work vans. If you are really lucky they might send a desist letter but mostly they don't care what you do once the la...

Re: Trespass?

Does the op know if the neighbour (or him the other way round) has a right over any area?

Sometimes duel driveways are left clear because they aren't wide enough on their own but are used for door opening etc

Re: Right to a view

Thank you for your replys. It is a 1968 bungalow built with the view to being a gp surgery, which it has been for all that time. It sits on the edge of a conservation area but is also on a brown field/industrial site. It looks out onto a block of public toilets, an abandoned factory unit and a fire ...

Right to a view

Hi,

Can any of you good folks tell me if this is a valid reason for refusal of a planning application please.

the proposed building would be a visual intrusion and would be detrimental to an established conservation view.

Thanks
