Re: Selfish neighbour parking caravan on grass

I know people have to park their cars, caravans etc. somewhere, Hi, I have to disagree with that statement (tongue in cheek, mind). People do do not have to keep their caravan somewhere, in fact they do not have to keep a caravan. They want to keep a caravan, so therefore they must want to keep it ...

Re: Post to be left with neighbour

Royal Mail says that they intend to leave post with neighbours. I cannot think of anything worse! Hi, I understod that mail must be delivered to the address on the envelope (even if Postie knows the intended recipient lives down the road). Anything worse? Yeah, collect your mail from the Post Office...

Re: Parking + ROW

Hi Minder, Does your neighbour(s) have parking in her own plot, or does she have the problem that you will have if you can't park in your own yard? I visulise your property as being part of a converted farm building complex. ??? If so, it is propbably a fairly recent development. What did the Planne...

Re: PARK YOUR CARAVAN IN YOUR GARDEN

Hi, There is (was) something somewhere in the Act, that says if you have USED somewhere for 10 years (continuously), then the council do not have the power to tell you to stop using it. Also in the Act, but for longer, is (was) the statement that if you built something and it remained there for 4 ye...

Re: PARK YOUR CARAVAN IN YOUR GARDEN

Hi, How long have you be parking your caravan in your garden? If more than 10 years, they can't tell you to stop. I'm not sure about the 4 year rule, unless you laid a special caravan parking "lawn". ( I grew this grass specially for the occasion! :D ) However, if somebody had been living in the car...

Re: Footpath Never Diverted - Help

Hi,

If permission was given, permission can be taken away .... but I'm not sure if that applies in your case ...... too many people using the path without specifically been given permission.

Get copies of the correspondence, etc.

Re: Parking + ROW

Hi, I'm guessing that if this went to court, then she would win. The question is, how much will she have to spend before you have to start spending. But two queries ..... There was something in Garden Law recently about a judge saying that a RoW did not extend over every square inch. So today you ca...

Re: Fly tipping on private RoW

For domestic purposes we can legitimately transport as much waste around as we want. Hi, But you are going to have problems if you try to take it to your amenity site in a goods vehicle, even if it is used privately. I'm guessing that my Sports Utility (four passengers and a jet-ski) would be consid...

Re: Another academic wall

all must be measured from your NATURAL ground level

Hi,

So what happens if the ground slopes? Where do you measure it from?

What is the natural level, if the ground level was raised/lowered during site development many (say 50) years ago?

Re: Fly tipping on private RoW

Sorry but the European Court has already been there and if you move soil to another ownership then you do not want it and thus it is waste. Hi, I have a pile of soil. I'm happy for it to stay where it is. My mate visits, sees the soil, says he wants it. We agree a price. He carts the soil away. I w...

Re: Trimming back a hedge to allow extension build.

Hi,

Do a Google for Party Wall Act, read it for yourself.

Tell him you are grubbing up the hedge so that you can access your side of the party fence, as it needs creosoting. :D

Re: Planning Permission

Hi, My understanding (which may be out of date) is that once you have laid (or possibly even just dug)the foundations, your PP is written in stone. That should be somewhere in the Act. But I heard of a case of a self-builder who dug his foundations, then had to cease development for a period, so he ...

Re: Neighbours using my garden when they only have ROW

Hi, Me? I would talk to my HR manager, ask his/her advice on how to deal with this without putting your job at risk. Get it on record. Install a CCTV camera, but pointing only at your garden. Your neighbour seems confident that they are going to be moving into your house. I wonder why that is? Perha...
