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?

If one is blocking your access, then remove it yourself?

Form AP1 submitted. If my neighbor puts an AP1 form in after me, will it be rejected due to an existing application?
Not necessarily. And I don't believe we know conclusively that he hasn't already made such an application.

Once fence was replaced, I asked for her share, I asked a few times, re...

Re: DECKING AND FENCE, HELP PLEASE :-(

Do both you and the neighbour own right up to the waters edge? What do the Canal & River Trust have to say about it? Surely space needs to be left for a towpath?

What exactly is your gripe? Has he gone onto land you believe is yours?

Re: unknown land and fencing

So if he does indeed replace the fence, then you need to get in there and claim this land. Garden extension etc.

I would love an extra 6ft times whatever to my garden.

Re: Fence ownership.

Hi footrest, whether you own a fence, or a wall, or a hedge, or a swimming pool, or a house, is straightforward enough to work out by working out - is it on your land? you need to try establish whether the current fence was paid for by next door but built in the same place and the original fence - ...

Re: Front boundary moved by 12”

To emphasise that 5'6" will allow a small car to get through, whereas 4'6" will not..... this WILL wipe value from your property if you aren't careful.

Re: Untidy land with no clear boundary

Unless I've misunderstood, it's not the addition of a fence but the removal of a fence that's needed - anything that sits between the stone wall and the rest of the OPs property is what's causing the ambiguity. Yes this is the situation, there is an existing boundary to the land which currently exc...
