Good point. Here is the view from my relatives side. Obviously you can see where the roots were, and that it is shallow.

Thank you for your response.

Re: Right of Way/Adverse Possession Dilemma

I've attached a sketch of how the two properties were in 1927. They were separate properties owned by the same person. Hopefully you will see below how it would have been impossible for property number 1 to function as it's own house. It had no land and no kitchen/water/drainage or rear access etc....

can a gravel board retain anything

Hello, A relative and their neighbour are having a new fence installed (concrete post/gravelboard/wooden panel mesne fence, on the centre-line, costs shared, replacing a leylandii hedge which was also mesne). The second quarter (from the houses looking down) is slightly raised, by around one foot. T...

Re: Right of Way/Adverse Possession Dilemma

There has been a recent case where two properties showed the same piece of land in each title. One owner erected a lockable barrier so that only he could park on this piece of land that was shown on his title plan. The other owner claimed that he could not do this because the land was on their titl...

I would make sure you use this right of way quite often, and other neighbours too

Re: Neighbour wants to drive on foot only access driveway

Do you have legal cover on your own house insurance? The question to ask is what this next door house is worth with foot access, and what would it be worth with a parking space? In some parts of the country this could be six figures. Or do you offer to buy next door from them and redevelop it yourse...

Re: Can my Neighbour Build onto my Detached Garage?

Is your detached garage built on the party line or to your side of the party line?

Re: Can I Remove the Hedge

Cut it back to a height of 6ft and not bushy on your side. You can possibly justify the height reduction due to the 6ft clause (is it in your doc, or his too?)

Is it leylandii or something native?

Re: Historic rentcharges Bristol Bath Manchester

Heard today that this property is only about £4.50 a year, which is pleasing news.

Re: Historic rentcharges "Bristol Bath Manchester

Hello, My friend is considering a purchase of a property where the deeds indicate a "perpetual yearly rentcharge of £1275.10s.0d" I am assuming (hoping) that said amount applies to a large amount of land which Lord Whatever sold to the builder, and hasn't yet been apportioned. It may not be, of cour...

Re: Is a row just open to anyone to use?

Is it perchance a public ROW? Your council will have a definitive map online (or at local library).

Re: Neighbour insistant on right of way

You either want a battle or you don't.

I fear that this is an undocumented ROW. Are they council tenants? Or housing association or similar? Your best hope is that tenants of the above usually have behaviour clauses so you can perhaps report them that way.

Sue your friends?

Not necessarily. And I don't believe we know conclusively that he hasn't already made such an application.
