Re: Shared fence and sttached structure

Possibly the lean-to has acquired a right of support.....?

It seems silly for the existance of a lean-to to stop a nice fence from existing.

Re: Unregistered Land

Is he using the land upto your former boundary with Thames Water?

If not, I repeat to get your claim in now, without making further excuses or delays.

Re: Untidy land with no clear boundary

Get a decent fence up - one that puts both your existing garden and some/all of this scrub land as one and at least 2 metres high. Once you have a fence up, the ONLY way they can have it removed is to go to court and show documents. I feel from your thread that speed is of the essence. They are obv...

Re: Extending existing shared boundary wall?

Were they given an implied easement to use the extra swing room (or have they acquired such by virtue of 20 years use)?

You mean you wish to fence-in the verge nearest to your property?

Re: Unregistered Land

Has he fenced and used this land for 12 years?

If so, then any claim you may have had is too late.

If not, then yes you ought to get your own application in NOW using practice guide 40 to assist.

Good theory BUT..... I'd be lynched by the local mafia. I have to be 110% within the law.

Re: High Hedge Act - unusual case needs advice

https://www.gardenlaw.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=19963 is a similar scenario. Sadly your neighbour will be seen as the aggressor. The fact is that these neighbouring four houses are entitled to get a huge hedge cut down. I do have some sympathy, but presumably you were aware that this parcel of la...

Re: Their own fence is in their disfavour - makes a difference?

Do you agree? Definitely do NOT pay or contribute. Legally as already said (even if they are correct) the fence was "mistaken but reasonable" and can stay where it is - and again you state it is THEIR fence. On what basis does their builder feel he is qualified to comment? Even a strip 25cm wide has...

Re: How to get highway recognised?

For S, which is now verge how do you force Highways to recognised that as verge? S has no other owner. S has a tree on that is damaging my boundary wall. I need a "landowner" so I can get something done about this. Now we understand the real issue. May I suggest you make a tactical decision to just...

Re: Option to purchase

Have you looked at applying for a 'standard' small mortgage with using your pensions as your proof of income. With such a large deposit and small mortgage I don't think you'd need to show much.

However, your situation as described doesn't seem outrageous really.
