Re: Septic Tank

I think you are being woefully let down by the EH. Hopefully the forestry commission will have the resources to provide some clout and make these people act. The other way might be to look at your house insurance and get them to kick ass on your behalf if your policy has the relevant cover. I wish i...

Re: Chain on right of way gate

There in lies your bargaining chips. Point out to him you would most likely be successful if you took him to court for substantial interference to get the lock removed. Point out to him that you are under no obligation to even shut the gate once you've passed through it let alone lock it. But you ar...

Re: Different RoW Issue - so called private lane

An old document (1920s) has come to light which seems to suggest that the original landowner gave the land – including the lane- to the existing 5 properties on the lane. Five further properties have been built on the lane since the 1920s.  Tell us more about this...what land ? A plan and the wordi...

Re: Easements - right of way

A diagram or series of diagrams might help people unravel all this along with actual wording of easement(s). Along with a timeline of ownership and a list of the facts you know.

Re: Large bush/tree branches trimming on ROW

I concur with Macs comment. Such confrontation is not good, it is harrassment. make sure you keep a diary of all such interactions, better still capture them on video or even sound recording. That way you collect the necessary evidence that the police might take action. On a practical point to avoid...

Have you READ this thread!? In that instance, i stated the neighbour was shouting over a conversation i was having with her new gardener, the new gardener that walked thru my garden, without prior warning, while me and my partner and my one year old daughter were enjoying the sunshine in our garden...

Re: Elderly neighbor has tripped on a path i own but they have a row- terraced housing

You have no authority to decide what needs doing and spend your neighbours money. If you wanted them to contribute to repairs you should have agreed what needed doing and agreed costs before hand. You have no authority to prevent access at any time or to anyone legitimately visiting your neighbour. ...

Re: RoW dispute with neighbour

Yes,...but not because he has access to trim his hedge....because he has the right to maintain his right of way is clear.

No.


IMHO. :D 😀

Re: RoW dispute with neighbour

I believe a more correct way to understand this is that the right of way has no restrictions. Ie it can be used for all purposes in connection with access to the property it benefits. So yes a marching band could pass along it to access the property. However they could not stop and hold a concert on...

Yes the fence belongs to you just as your car or your lawn mower belongs to you. You can do with it as you wish ...within planning laws if applicable.

Re: installation of electric gates/ ROW

As your neighbour has said they are going to proceed with the installation you need to act fast. Once the money is spent and its in place they will fight much harder to keep it. From what you have put i believe the installation they propose would almost certainly be found to be a substantial interfe...
