Advice on planting a hedge

HI all, Some may remember I have a NFH who enjoys nothing more than being nasty. The short version is, criminal damage, theft, threats, sharp objects, dog barking, rotten fence, collapsed render on house, and court. Now for once this isn't a plea for advice on how to deal with them, simply I've had ...

Re: Neighbours house in a poor state!

They wouldn't support us ............ The Right of Support mentioned is a mutual and common right in terraced and semi detached properties. They cannot remove walls that are attached to your walls. Ah I misunderstood the term. First time in a terraced house with issues like this. I've not been insi...

Re: Neighbours house in a poor state!

If I've got this right, you're asking whether you can get your neighbour to repair or smarten up their property. If that is your question, then of course the answer is absolutely not, and I suspect you know that however much you don't like looking at it, they can let their house look as awful as th...

Re: Neighbours house in a poor state!

You have a right of support from your neighbour. If you consider that their property is in such a poor state of repair that it may affect the integrity of your own property you need to get a structural engineer to report that, after which you may be able to take some action. They wouldn't support u...

Re: Neighbours house in a poor state!

Do you have a mortgage? If so the mortgage company would be affected by any damage to your house and might wish to become involved. House is owned outright currently. If I've got this right, you're asking whether you can get your neighbour to repair or smarten up their property. If that is your que...

What for? Would I report it to them?

I do have house insurance, not thought about checking if they would have an interest.

Neighbours house in a poor state!

Hello good people of GL. This topic might be outside of the normal garden questions, but theres some great knowledge here and I thought I would ask for opinions. Our NFH have been quite calm after they were taken to court over the issues they presented to us. Sadly nothing done about the rotten fenc...

Re: Rear access and end of terrace

If he is interfering with your ROW you could ultimately involve the courts. Speak to him first though. Explain you have a ROW, and that if he refuses to remove his car you must look at how to enforce that as against him. If that fails, check your household insurance for legal cover, and consult a s...

Re: Parking Space Problem

From what the OP said here: The neighbors have admitted (although not in writing) that when they viewed the house the estate agent told them that the fence formed the boundary and the parking space belonged to me and it was only after they bought the house they realized the plans showed different.

Re: Fence advice please

All due respect to the poster above, but that's rubbish. They have REPLACED a fence, therefore it should follow the original line of the fence and not deviate from that. I've had a fence replaced that was totally gone, rotten out and simply not there. We used the points where the old posts where sti...

Re: Parking Space Problem

Sounds like the neighbours have admitted they were told the space was yours when viewing the house, so surely they agreed to buy the house on that basis, and it was only when they viewed the plans they saw it was different. Why didn't they simply bring this to you first? rather than go on the attack...

Re: Rear access and end of terrace

Well they really have exceled themselves this time. I spent a few weekends clearing out or old garage, and measuring up as I have bought a newer and nicer prefab garage for 99p on ebay. I found I need to enlarge the concrete base as the new garage is wider, no problem I would store all the bits of t...

Re: next doors rotten fence

thankyou all for your suggestions :) I am looking at the options like the pallet idea as I also want to make a frame to cover our trailer tent, and using old pallets was an idea for that too. One of the many things I need to look into is this rotten fence is leaning into our garden quite a bit. I we...

Re: Rear access and end of terrace

said some good stuff Thankyou for your reply! You have confirmed what I suspected myself really. No one but the actual owner of the land would be inconvenienced by the fence, and unless they come knocking I doubt anything official would happen. Im very tempted to erect a temporary fence, made out o...
