Indennity Insurance ... academic

Hi, We have just bought a bungalow ... exchanged Saturday, move tomorrow (Monday). The bungalow was built in 1985. Looking through the finacial documentation, just received, we can see that the Vendor paid £225 for Indenity Assurance. We had agreed to this. It covers .... The lack of Building Regula...

Re: Planning permission refused so using permitted development

Hi, It seems strange that the Planners can refuse an application, presumably because they don't want it to happen, but have taken no action to prevent it going ahead under Permitted Development which gives the developer a free hand ... provided they keep to the rules. Question ... do the Planners us...

Re: SEARCHES

Hi The Saga is nearly over, all the hoops have been jumped through. We move on Monday. One last fright. My wife did an electronic transfer of £17,000 to our solicitors, being the balance of the purchase of our new home. The bank sent it off at 07.30hrs. It had not arrived by mid-afternoon. My wife w...

Re: digging 1 metre away

Hi, Write them a letter holding them responsible, saying that you intend to claim for the damage, but will take no action until September 1st, to give their insurers time to inspect your property. Copy the letter to your insurer. My experience was that my own insurers required me to have an initial ...

Re: Replacement Fence - Do I have any rights?

Hi Baytree, I don't think its a question of which resident should enjoys the "good side" of a fence. If the panel is fixed against the post, there will be an area of land between the posts, albeit only 4" wide, that is, or will become, the property of whichever neighbour has access to it. As, as has...

Re: Neighbour growing forest in tiny garden

if I’ve understood you correctly, the only answer I can think for the former is “remove the fence” and I can’t think of anything sensible for the latter.

Hi,

I understand that goats are responsible for the current state of the Sahara Forest.

Re: Cutting back tree branches

Hi,

It is my understanding that your neighbour should offerto return the branches that they have cut off. You may refuse.

If they keep them without offering, that is theft.

If they throw the branches into your garden without asking, it's fly-tipping.

Hi,

Ask for the name of their insurerers. It might concentrate their minds.

Does the PWA cover garages?

Re: Property damage and new fence

Hi, Your neighbour doesn't care about escalation. Get a quote to return your garden to what it was (professional rates), send her a copy, give her 14 days, or a set date such as the last day of the month, to tell you what she intends to do. Your fall-back position is to re-instate your property, and...

Re: Overhanging gutter with no downpipe

Hi, You may not wish to bathe in water from a butt, but you might be happy to use it to flush the WC. Assuming it was practical, I'd be happy to have a 1000 gallon taknk buried in my garden. My horses could empty a domestic bathfull of water in 24 hours. If it rained, the water from the shed roof wo...

Re: cats killing baby birds

Hi, If I disturb a birds nest, the full wrath of the law will fall upon me. But I allowed to "keep" a cat that will empty every nest it can find. Will a "hunting" hawk take down a cat? Friends had two Siamese kittens. One disappeared from her garden while her back was turned for a couple of seconds....

Re: Highways mistake?

Hi,

The land Registry told me that their maps only show "topographical features"

In my experience, the topographical features often follow what has appeared on the map.

Re: Fraudulent Sale Of Land

Hi, I agree with the advice to keep the farmer "on side". But ... If the OP (Petal?) voluntarily gives back the stolen land, without there being a court order to do so, would he be weakening his claim against the previous owner? Would it still be necessary to prove the fraud? If this is fraud, isn't...

Re: DECKING AND FENCE, HELP PLEASE :-(

British Waterways no longer exists, the charity which controls canals is the Canal & River Trust Hi Mac, Point taken! It doesn't flow off my tongue like British Waterways did. There's this on Google, but I don't know if Permitted Development applies. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/specialist-teams/...
