Re: Garden gate directly onto rear footpath

Put a trail of very muddy footprints across his car, as if someone had come out of your gate and walked over the top. See what happens.

Re: Neighbour duplicating Wayleave agreement already under our property title

I'm guessing now ... if the pole stands on your land for the requisite period (13 years?), without them paying the "rent", or you demanding it, I think they can (or could) obtain "Squatter's Rights". Discuss! "Our" pole had been wrongly marked on the map since time immemorial - probably from electr...

Re: Neighbour duplicating Wayleave agreement already under our property title

There is something very odd here. We have such a pole, belonging to the electricity transmission company, situated on our land. Thirty years ago I read that we ought to be entitled to an annual payment from the company for siting it on our land, and they submitted their map, which showed the pole wa...

Re: Pass or Repass rights

My first reaction is that the grant gives rights to the neighbours to pass and repass, but that the owners of the land use it by right of ownership, so are not subject to the grant. Subject of course to not obstructing the neighbours.
is that correct?

Re: My gate through nieghbours fence

No. If you read the posting they have replaced the fence with a new one but left the old gate. Does the gate occupy the entire space of one fence panel, which they have left, or have they replaced the panel but left the gate propped up alongside, or have they left the gate/panel in place but covere...

I think we'll be putting up a fence along the boundary quick sharp in the new year to avoid future issues.
Is that a good idea? Surely ivy will then grow happily in the gap until it emerges at the top, and push the fence away from the wall?

Re: Buying a property with right of way going "through" the property?

if you want privacy and convenience then the logical thing is to only consider properties that can offer this - and this one cannot I imagine the cafe is pretty quiet at present and has well-behaved orderly patrons? How would you feel if they got a drinks licence, music licence, had a late-night li...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

And what is delegated authority?? Delegated authority is how local local government usually works for most routine operations. The council or its sub-committees are the only ones with full authority. Delegated authority means officers are authorised to make certain decisions on the council's behalf...

I really don’t understand the logic that the lower part of a wall can be a party wall but the upper part is not. I’m satisfied you’re wrong about this. It is one wall.

Re: Horse Chestnut

It is more dangerous to fell dead trees as they can fall at the wrong angle....so I have just been advised re removal of dead chestnut trees.. It is almost more expensive because a living tree can be climbed and the branches reduced in sections by the surgeon. A dead tree is unsafe to climb so they...

Re: Purchasing property with breached restrictive covenant

@clifford pope, the opinion isn't for our benefit its to satisfy our lender.

Re: Purchasing property with breached restrictive covenant

An opinion however expensive is still only an opinion. It might give you confidence but only a court can actually make a legal ruling.
