Re: Whose wall?

Hi again,

Yes, it is all about interpretation and reading what is in the Titles and Conveyances....

From what has been written I have an interpretation with caveats.

Without seeing the Titles and Conveyances it is not clear who owns what.

Thanks

Re: Whose wall?

Hi again, All good points.... and you need to check the titles and conveyances. If there are double T's on boundary features they are usually considered to be Party. If there are no T's on boundary features they are also usually considered to be party boundaries unless you can show that the feature ...

Re: Whose wall?

Hi again, As I said it is complex. If it straddles the boundary then it a Party Wall. It may also be causing a Trespass if it was built across the boundary without permission. If the garages are internal, then the external part if at/on the boundary will therefore be Part A or Part B Party Walls, de...

Re: Walls within garden boundary- permission required?

Hi, Not sure if Wales is different in terms of Permitted Development..... In England/UK Permitted development is split into two parts, Part 1 and Part 2. When Permitted Development is removed from planning units, this usually refers to specific sections on Part 1, not Part 2. Part 2 includes a secti...

Re: Whose wall?

Hi again,

Party Wall law is very complex.....

An internal party wall does not have to straddle the boundary (TypeA) it can also be built at/next to the boundary (TypeB)

You really need to get the plans out and understand the conveyances and any subsequent 'agreements'.

Re: Whose wall?

If the garden walls are built asride the boundary then they are Party Wall Fences. If the walls are considered as extensions to the main house build and are on or at the boundary they may also be a Type B Party Wall. You need to get the plans out and see what the conveyances say or don't say about a...

Re: When is a wall not a wall?

Hi again, Nothing that I am aware of....... except trying to develop and enjoy the land I own...... Our property has some development rights removed and the planners often think this applies to all development. I find that the local planners can get themselves very entrenched, and some seem to suffe...

Re: When is a wall not a wall?

Hi again, Update: I have now met with the Planning Enforcement Officer and his supervisor. They now seem to accept that the walls fall under permitted development in terms of size and locations. The issue seems to have moved to lawful use of the area. What is not clear is the extent of the 'planning...

Re: Another academic wall

Hi,

The 2m rule is for walls at a boundary away from the highway.

There are different rules around height of sheds at boundaries under permitted development, including their location in relation to the main front elevation and the highway, etc.

Good luck

Re: When is a wall not a wall?

Hi again, Yes, the 1.9m walls are away (over 2m I think from memory) from the highway, and the 0.7m high wall is adjacent to the highway. I was very careful when setting out the walls. I think that the planning officer has seen my footings and walls going in and jumped to the conclusion that we are ...

Re: When is a wall not a wall?

Hi again, Sorry no photos as I'm working away from home this week..... Further discussion with development control and it appears they feel the walls fail the permitted development rules with the walls being over 2m and 1m next to the highway. We were very careful not to exceed these limits with the...

When is a wall not a wall?

Hi, I have added some boundary walls to the gateway area of my property. The gateway area has right of ways for neighbours to access their properties, but there is a small U shaped area (Approx. 4mx6m) to the side of the gateway with no row access. I have built stone boundary walls to enclose the ar...
