Re: Neighbour storing batteries and junk

I wonder if the landlord has exercised his right of inspection He might well not be amused at the way his property is being treated both outside ans maybe inside too ha - that's an on-going joke with my wife and I. The landlords only come round between tenants, to tart the place up to get it rented...

Re: Neighbour storing batteries and junk

Thank-you. The fence isn't panels, so I can't get through that way. The only way I could access is to put a stepladder against it and try and cut it from above by leaning over and using some long cutters, but I would rather go the "polite" route first (plus it would probably be easier to do it from ...

Neighbour storing batteries and junk

Hi, Not sure if this is the right place, but the forum has helped me a lot in the past so hoping someone can help. We have 2 problems with our neighbour. We own our house, but he is the tenant of next door which is rented. The houses are both detached. First problem: He seems to be a hoarder...when ...

Re: Reaching breaking point - Now got a Boundary issue!

So bearing in mind she now wants to "back down", but has kept the "threat" open by indicating she might use this "evidence" in the future, would it be worth you pursuing her, in order to get it resolved? I mean, you don't want her to go quiet for a year then pipe up again starting the whole thing ag...

Re: Reaching breaking point - Now got a Boundary issue!

Wow, quite a bit of progress today. Well done. Now that you have a professional on your side you must feel better, cos he backs up your case with knowledge, not just assumptions. Your neighbour will now be forced to either back down (thereby admitting defeat and that she was wrong) or dispute the re...

Re: Reaching breaking point - Now got a Boundary issue!

A delivery reciept just shows that the email server has delivered it to the mailbox, not that they've read it (even a read receipt can be cancelled). Even then, its not fool proof, so dont worry about that. If the address had been wrong, then you would've received an error reply by now, unless its s...

Re: Reaching breaking point - Now got a Boundary issue!

Hi Pixies, Sorry, I was thinking she was in the same building as you. I do understand your condition - thats why I was surprised it still seems to be dragging on, cos for your sake, the sooner it is resolved the better. When you emailed her husbands address, did you put a delivery or read receipt on...

Re: Reaching breaking point - Now got a Boundary issue!

I really don't understand some of this. She lives right next door to you and she works in the same building as you? Now then, I know the situation is not nice, but why not just put a letter through her letter box? I think you should let the boss deal with the work issue and not worry about that, if ...

Re: Advice For Elderly Parents Please

This can be easily rectified for about £50!!!!

Just get some gypo's in to give his driveway a "buttering" of tarmac.

Will look good as new....for a few days!

Re: Reaching breaking point - Now got a Boundary issue!

Any reply to your letter about meeting up yet? With the boundary, she needs to provide proof of her claims, or shut up. When our rear neighbour cut down our trees, her first defence was that she owned the strip of land. I said to her to provide proof, and if she could, then I would shut up cos there...

Automatically - no, but it is the first step on the slippery slope of boundary confusion and dispute.
Yeah...I would agree with that from hard personal experience!

Re: 3 trees threaten my life daily

Easier to beg forgiveness than seek permission. Does that mean just cut them down? If so, then I agree, the OP would get the trees cut down and their issues solved. However, having had a rear neighbour just decide to do this to us, I would say that was completely underhand behaviour and if the OP d...

Re: Advice For Elderly Parents Please

I'm sure others will respond more fully, but from reading posts on here my opinion is that you only become liable once you have been made aware of the damage. i.e. he would be liable for further damage had he not done anything. So if I've got that correct, then your father did the right thing removi...
