Re: Highway Boundary Fence

Looking at the photograph taken from the front of your house, it would appear that any intruder would have very easy access to the back garden via your driveway.

Re: Neighbour growing forest in tiny garden

What the neighbours grow in their garden is their choice and their business just as what you do with your garden is your choice. They bought their garden to do with it as they please and you enjoy the same right to the land and property you bought. It is not as clear cut and simple as that. If you ...

Re: Replacement Fence - Do I have any rights?

Is the new fence in the same position as the old one. Unless any part of the new fence (posts or panels) encroaches on your side of the boundary there is nothing you can do about it. On a positive note the new concrete posts will be more sturdy and last much longer than wooden ones, the downside to ...

Re: WIDTH OF RIGHT OF WAY

You have been well advised by other members of the forum that your neighbour has no right to increase the width of the row. However if the neighbour is planning to sell up he might mislead a potential purchaser into believing the row is wider than it actually is. He could then disappear leaving an o...

Re: Neighbours fence damaged my patio

If the patio slabs are just loose and not actually broken, is it worth the aggravation of getting into a dispute with your neighbour. Why not just fill the trench in and reset the loose slabs.

Re: WIDTH OF RIGHT OF WAY

It would be helpful if you could post a diagram or map showing the right of way and the land around it, with your land and your neighbours clearly marked. Is the 12 ft width of the row clearly defined on the ground by fixed boundary features, such as walls or fences? Do you own land on both sides of...

Re: Neighbour’s raised garden level impinges on our privacy over their fence.

I am a bit confused, I have just checked through this thread from start to finish. From your first post you have consistently referred to the fence dividing your gardens as their fence, now in your latest post you are calling it your fence.
Is it your fence or theirs?

Re: Neighbour’s raised garden level impinges on our privacy over their fence.

Before anyone can offer any further advice, it would be helpful if you could talk to your neighbour and try to establish who owns the right hand fence.

Re: Neighbour’s raised garden level impinges on our privacy over their fence.

Hi Dave 57, In the absence of any other evidence this would tend to indicate that the fence on the right is probably yours based on what? kind regards, Mac Based on the information about the fences given by the OP. The OP states that the left hand fence belongs to the neighbour on the left, but onl...

Re: Neighbour’s raised garden level impinges on our privacy over their fence.

I am pretty sure the fence which is on the right side of my property is theirs. The fence on left of our property is our left hand neighbour’s and ours is, I believe the fence at the bottom of our garden. In the absence of any other evidence this would tend to indicate that the fence on the right i...

Re: Conservatory toilet

Sorry, but I can't get beyond the fact that somewhere there is a conservatory and someone put a toilet in it. Haven't the neighbours complained? Brings to mind an advert from a few years ago, which was set in a large empty room with big windows (might have been a conservatory). The only items of fu...

Re: Strange One:Rear garden fence between two properties !

You really should talk to your new neighbour, it won’t be an easy conversation but it needs to take place sooner rather than later. The timeline of the old fence is a vague and confusing history of claims, assertions, assumptions, presumptions, hearsay, and informal piecemeal repairs. All with no su...

Re: Strange One:Rear garden fence between two properties !

Did your new neighbour mention his plans for the fence before removing your panels? Even if he believed that he owned the fence, it would have been courteous to at least talk to the OP first to confirm that this was the case.
