Re: Front boundary moved by 12”

My neighbours extension is now coming to completion thankfully. I thought you were objecting to the neighbour pinching part of your access drive and building on it? Now you seem to be thankful it is completed for some reason. If you wanted to dispute this you should have taken legal action the mome...

Re: Resurrection of right of way.

Is there a question buried somewhere?

Something with a question mark would be a clue :)

Re: Parking on ROW - Private road

If you want to make a point by being annoying you could wait until the neighbour's car is away and then park there yourself. :)

Re: Private access road - resurfacing a section.

The tarmac part I wish to block pave over isn't my land, I wish to incorporate it into my driveway I'm confused. You said originally: "The area of tarmac in question is of no use to anyone else who shares the private road other than myself as it sits within my boundary". If it sits within your boun...

Re: Let's see if we can propose a better way of dispute proposal

Before dismissing the idea out of hand it might be worth comparing the situation with other areas of dispute, equally complicated, equally subject to legal pitfalls, but nonetheless sometimes benefitting from unqualified commonsense as an option at an early stage to secure agreement before escalatin...

Re: Public bench overlooking my garden

If there is a scenic view one way and your garden in the other then clearly it is either a mistake or some joker has unbolted it from its concrete anchor and turned it round. That said I've seen new benches sited looking straight into a hedge, or buried under a pile of gravel the council then tipped...

Re: Neighbours fence damaged my patio

If your paving starts to slip on removal of the fence it suggests it was being supported by the fence. That is surely bad practice - the paving should have had proper support and not rely on a wooden fence to buttress it.

Re: Rights of way and animals

The driveway is used by tractors and trailers every week for both the farmhouse and my barn. I should have thought a driveway to a farmhouse would have been used by all kinds of animals ever since the farm was built. Try taking a herd of cows along it twice a day and see whether he minds the mess. :)

Sorry, but I can't get beyond the fact that somewhere there is a conservatory and someone put a toilet in it. Haven't the neighbours complained?
It does seem a bizarre thing to do. Presumably it is partitioned off in one corner? What have you done about the glazing?

Re: Trying to upgrade my electricity supply, being blocked by neighbour :(

It sounds as if you need proper legal advice on what can and cannot be enforced under the covenant.

Re: Trying to upgrade my electricity supply, being blocked by neighbour :(

We have a similar situation, except that we are the only house. Some observations and thoughts: Our electricity board recently upgraded "our" transformer because it had reached a certain age. Perhaps you could check when yours is due for routine replacement? It would cost nothing then. I have always...

Re: Road class of attached highway?

It seems bizarre to me that bits at the side of a road can have a different classification to the centre. Among other anomalies that would allow would be the right to create an entrance on an otherwise classified road on the grounds that the bit at the side was unclassified, and therefore not subjec...
