Re: Is my neighbour's garage wall a party wall?

We have the same plot design as this but we would be A and our garage wall even though forms a boundary is not a party wall. Might be worth asking a conveyancer for advice on the exact wording though.

Re: Garage Wall

Thank you for your response.
No we haven’t made them aware yet as we only discovered the extent of the damp yesterday. Have had to dispose of many things due to mould etc.
Also not sure on how to approach them as we don’t want to come across as nasty neighbours pointing fingers.

Garage Wall

Previous neighbour built a patio right up to our garage wall in 2020 during lockdown and it now appears to be above the dpc. We have just moved some items in the garage and they are damp and mouldy and the walls that have been painted the paint is peeling. Who would be liable for the damage and the ...

Re: Right of Way ‘every other day’

We had the exact same issue with our neighbours 1 parking space but marketing with 2. Again if 2 cars parked then this would significantly reduce our right of way. We contacted the estate agent on our solicitors advice, provided them with documentation that proved this and the particulars were chang...

Re: Moving of shared accessway boundary line

So even though my driveway is empty we are expected to drive round the block until I can access my own property. If we have a delivery they are asked to park on the road even though it would not impact on the other 2 properties. Due to the positioning of their drives and garages what they do impacts...

Re: Moving of shared accessway boundary line

Yes we have right of way across the fronts of the 2 properties, over the years it’s been referred to by all as “shared” so that’s just a habit. The issue is that we are on a main junction (traffic lights) and if we are unable to gain access due to a delivery or someone unloading we block the road as...

Re: Moving of shared accessway boundary line

We were advised by the solicitor that dealt with the original case in 2012 that once the neighbour had moved we had no recourse as the court order was against him not the property. The one thing that we do have is in writing from the original builders is how they worked the area out and they provide...

Re: Moving of shared accessway boundary line

Aborlad - still here. We didn’t move as things had quietened down for a few years. Unfortunately both properties sold within a short space of time with each other. What is annoying is that they were both made aware of what they had in relation to parking and what the accessway meant and how and what...

Re: Moving of shared accessway boundary line

They have used black paint on block paving stones. The previous owners removed the boundary markings that were originally instructed by a court order.

Moving of shared accessway boundary line

We share an accessway with 2 other properties which we have in writing from the original builders is only wide/long enough to manoeuvre a standard vehicle. Our property comes with ample parking but the other 2 only have 1 and 2 parking spaces. One property has decided to mark the boundary but have d...

Re: Private shared parking and easements

We had the same issue and eventually I went back to the builders 11 years after moving in. They proved extremely helpful as the areas has to be large enough to manoeuvre a family sized vehicle. They provided me with tracking details for the 3 properties to prove the area couldn’t be obstructed at an...

Re: Accessway Obstruction

TonyW Too be honest I'm just glad they've gone. What we can't comrehend is the inconsistency when benefit fraud is committed. It was a friend of mine that uncovered the "going's on" as she works for HB department and to what extent. This couple were never named and shamed or prosecuted as ...

Re: Accessway Obstruction

Just thought I'd update everyone as to be fair everything has been relatively quiet. My neighbours from hell moved out last week not because they wanted to but had to. They were found to have been committing benefit fraud and have had to repay in excess of £90k so I think I can safely say "karm...

Re: Shared Accessway

Hi confusedpath I also live in exactly the same set up as you are describing and we have to cross 2 properties as an accessway (your not by chance buying the house next door are you). Over the years we have had numerous problems as everyone see's this "large" area and thinks it's ok to obs...

Re: Accessway Obstruction

Just an update, we have an appointment this afternoon with a solicitor who specialises in property law, she is going to look over the order that we have as she is of the opinion that our previous solicitor wimped out. But guess what I have just found on the internet, our NFH's house up for sale, the...
