Re: damage caused by neighbours actions

Is it worth a call to the water company - hosepipes should not be left unattended unless your neighbour is paying for water on a meter. They might like to remind him of this - at least he will be paying for the water, which is not cheap! Also check for any legal cover with house insurance etc, if yo...

Re: restrictive covenants and fences

short answer - just do it longer answer - the covenant is between you (or previous owners if you were not the original purchaser and have not taken on responsibility) and the original seller. your neighbour cannot sue you unless they were the original seller (estate owner) - and if they could, only ...

Re: Tree was trimmed by landlord in my garden without my con

we spotted a clause under section 3, paragraph (h), that if any such works are to be carried out, the lessor must give notice. They didn't give me notice as expected. what the solicitor found, by seeing the precise details of the terms of the lease, is probably remarkably similar to what people her...

Re: New house build neighbours extention

Is there any prospect of you wanting an extension that borders the same place - if so make sure that their building does not prevent you from doing so. If it is entirely, including guttering, on their property then fine, If it overhangs then it may disadvantage you or future owners in future. If the...

Re: Solicitor messed up? Where do we stand?

and who owns the roughly triangular strip of land between "our garden", "our house" and "our street" - and is there any reason that you can't create an access to your garden across that?

Re: Native hedgerow cut down by neighbour

problem is of course, that if he's ignored the terms of a "nice letter", he will ignore the terms of removing his rights under the "nice letter" if you can't prove anything, sadly you lose. I would be tempted to let it re-grow, but also plant a crop of lleylandi a few yards further back so it can't ...

Re: Have I stolen 2 inches of my neighbors garden?

Here's a crazy-land suggestion but depends on what you want out of this. My personal suggestion is an easy life and make the woman go away and bother someone else, hence: How hard would it be to cut back any plant growth that could be over "her land" - would it take you an hour? You already erected ...

Re: Advice regarding a Party wall issue

unless I missed it, there used to be someone that always posted wise words to the effect of:

check your household insurance (credit card insurance, dog insurance) for legal expenses cover and if you have it, see if they will handle it all for you

Re: TPO on some trees that I can't find in my garden

overhead dated images like you can get from the google earth application, may help you prove when they were removed, if you can identify them from above. In earth you have a slider to drag the images back in time and I think it shows you the date taken also

However, weight against the value of the land (that you never thought you owned), the value of peaceful neighbourly relationships. What I would do, assuming I didn't 'need' the garage, is wait for her to move or drop, then ask the relatives where they want her stuff put. Simple, effective, non confr...

Re: Neighbours insurer wants to cut down ALL my trees

I think the point with regards to building control is twofold. Firstly if you apply for planning permission for an extension etc. This does not automatically involve BC , you have to call them in (although the PP application may alert them, I don't know if this is actively policed by BC) Secondly if...

Re: Log Store

it might be worth asking if they would be minded to grant planning permission if requested (bearing in mind that you are calling it a log store but also using it to store not a small amount of machinery) - do the council have a "pre permission advice" service that you could use? my understanding is ...
