Re: Option to purchase

I am very tired of seeing so many properties especially bungalows advertised as reduced for over 65s with lifetime this or that Hi Despair, I haven't seen bungalows reduced for over-65s, but have seen them restricted to buyers over 50 (probably with other restrictions such os "no dogs", and "alloca...

Re: Private section of Road Stopped-up

Hi, I'm guessing that Mweb is saying "No, it is not shown on the Definitive Map" ... so it ain't a PRoW. But it might be, or have been, an easement. My understanding ... which might be wrong ... is that an easement benefits a property (and whoever lives therein). Question ... where does this "highwa...

Re: Option to purchase

Yes you have to provide 10% deposit but so does your buyer and any good solicitor arranges for the 10% from your buyer to be used for your new purchase Hi Despair, True ... I think one of my solicitors had a special fund for this, but we never needed it. We are selling for £178,000 (no mortgage to ...

Re: Option to purchase

Hi, Things progress. We now understand that the person we thought was the builder, is actually somebody who "underwrites" (?) the sale of one house to finance the purchase of new houses, by means that I don't fully understand, but part exchange has been mentioned. I understand that the old lady is s...

Re: Definition Of Frontager

If front boundary is to the road = definitely a frontager. I've also read that a back boundary to the road = a frontager. But not a side boundary (ie the road isn't either in front or behind the property). Hi Eliza, That's interesting to know. Thankyou. I assume that the LA decree which road that y...

Re: Definition Of Frontager

Hi, I have twice bought houses where, on examining the deeds. I have found that the property included half the width of the road. The first was an early 19th century cottage in Ynysmedwy (IN_IS_ME_DO, translates as Hermit's Island) being part of an estate auctioned in 1915 (KIA ... WW1?). The succes...

Re: Injunction - Remove padlock

Hi, I understood that an easement had to run from the property benefitting from the easement, to a public highway. ??? Does that mean they have to claim an easement over the private road as well? I think there may be special provisions if the property has no other means of access. But hey, what do I...

Re: Right of way / TR1 Form Declaration.......

We purchased our house 5 years or so ago .... had uninterrupted undisputed access for 15 years. Hi DDWindy, Those periods (5 and 15 years) may be critical. I think Adverse Possession cuts in at 10 years, and Prescriptive Easements cut in at 20 years ... or is it 19 years plus I day. From what you a...

Re: Neighbours Big Shed & Potential Business Query

Hi, I believe that if ANY part of the building is within 2 metres of a boundary, NO part of the building may be more that 2.5 metres high, measured from the highest point of the adjacent ground, without Planning Approval. (Buiding that is an extension of the dwelling, or deemed to be an extension, h...

Re: Neighbours extended garden into shared alleyway.

Hi, As I see it, if you do not own this land, you cannot prevent anybody else from doing what they like on, or to, it. Only the paper owner has that authority. That is, provided they do not obstruct your right of way. But if they do obstruct your right of way, who can you complain to? Do you have th...

Re: 3 not wise men

You can put a watch listing on these websites that monitor and then send you a notification of any properties going up for sale within a postcode area you set. Hi, Good thinking. Find the post code for your neighbour's house ... it might not be the same as yours. Log onto rightmove.co.uk, and click...

Re: Hazardous sewer pipe conundrum responsibility?

Hi Mylor,

Is there any chance that a previous occupier of your house had, at one time, a WC in the porch, that has since been removed, but the pipe not properly capped?

Re: Query on Boundaries in House Deeds

It is an urban property - the fences are not required to retain livestock Hi, Just in passing ... It is my understanding that "your" fence is to keep "your" livestock in, not keep your neighbours livestock out. If your neighbour's livestock ventures onto your property, he is liable for any damage t...

Re: Option to purchase

Hi, Since posting my last mail, the selling estate agent phoned, spoke to my wife, asked had we thought about things. She explained our dilema. EA went away, came back soon after, said that if we were prepared to meet their time scale, they wanted us to have the bungalow at the agreed price. So mayb...
