Re: Definition Of Frontager

As far as I understand, the maintenance and upkeep of an unadopted road is the responsibility of the frontagers. d. Where did this 'understanding' come from? Unadopted roads are usually maintained by those who need to use them in order to protect their vehicles and maintain their ability to pass an...

Re: Water pipe easement

Your garden has to be returned to a reasonable state similar to how it was before the works at his expense.

Water pipes are subject to strict regulations so it may be worth checking regs and if replacement has to be checked by water provider in your area

Re: Holiday Cottage trying to create a road/parking in garde

If you don't like what other people do with the land they own, then you could try to buy it so that you have control over it.
