Re: No response from solicitor means issue closed??

All the best. You need closure. I know only too well how worrying it is to be trapped in a boundary dispute like this which is not of your making. Hopefully a strong letter will make your neighbour understand that he cannot continue making trouble over an unsustainable boundary line and that in the ...

Re: Overhanging Branches - Letter from neighbour

[quote="Treeman"][quote="syckend"]Harry your neighbours can apply - as we did - for work to be done on the tree; but nothing can be done without your permission as the tree is on your land Thanks.

Re: Overhanging Branches - Letter from neighbour

Harry your neighbours can apply - as we did - for work to be done on the tree; but nothing can be done without your permission as the tree is on your land - unless of course the tree constitued a danger and the council made an order for work to be done. However now that your neighbours have informed...

Re: Overhanging Branches - Letter from neighbour

I'm afraid that as you own the tree then you are responsible for maintenance and for getting the appropriate permission to prune. You have been warned that the tree may cause potential problems so if anyone gets harmed you could find yourself responsible for paying compensation. You are in the same ...

You have a ROW. Remove the fence.

Re: Next Door Locked Gate

Don't be timid. You have a ROW so you can remove the lock and return it, borrow the key and get your own copy and even remove the gate. Cheers.

Re: No response from solicitor means issue closed??

Unfortunately Conveyancer is correct. Like it or not you have a boundary dispute hanging over you which could in due course make it difficult for you to sell your house. If there is any chance you have legal expenses insurance you should contact your insurers straight away. If not try and get a free...

Re: Neighbour using our land to turn around?

I agree with all the warnings above. The gate is the best option but you could also put up a notice on your land saying:- PRIVATE LAND. NO ACCESS OR TURNING. Then photograph the notice with a copy of that day's paper set up alongside. Such a notice is a common way of preventing a route becoming eith...

Re: ROW not on deeds of dominant tenement.

Oh dear! Do you have legal expenses insurance? If you do you need to get help on some of these issues. As others have pointed out the rule 'once a ROW always a ROW' is the one to follow. You cannot stop those with rights from using it. You need to establish exactly where your boundary is and where t...

Re: Aerial Photos.

In my experience a surveyor expert will not give evidence about aerial photographs unless he is competent in using the appropriate gadget that enables pairs of aerial photographs taken from a recognised height, to be viewed through it. Used correctly measurements of + or - a metre can be obtained. H...

Re: My land but what's my rights

Any land delineated as a ROW has to be kept clear both by you and your neighbour - so neither of you can park there! Your neighbour has a right to pass and repass but not to park. You may be able to wangle a slight diversion to allow your neighbour to pass but if he doesn't agree on an informal basi...
