Re: Trespassing pipe and other problems

Its puzzling why the builder is so keen to regain possession really, it's not suitable a a road as it's too narrow and the builder knows full well it's only useful to us! I cannot understand why you are puzzelled. If someone tried to steal something from you that you had bought and paid for, would ...

Re: Right of way

Mac, I believe you haven't got that quite right. If the boundary feature belongs to the serviant owner and is on the right of way then it is an interference that can be removed ? If there is a strip of land that belongs to the serviant owner between the right of way and the dominant owners land it c...

Re: Right of way

That is impossible to determine from the information you have posted . The wording of your easement is required along with any associated plans/drawings. Sketches or even photos of the layout would help......and then that might lead to more questions !

Re: Trespassing pipe and other problems

It was originally part of a larger farm,

Re: Trespassing pipe and other problems

Presumably during the time you used the field without the owners knowledge and subsequently rented it, you accessed it through your fields because you happened to own adjacent fields and it was convenient for you to do this. ? (ie there are no rights of way across your fields to access this field ?)...

Re: Boundary dispute

You need to post a plan to show to help people understand the layout. And the wording of any easements that exist for each property

Re: Retaining wall replacement is an eyesore.

who decides it is structurally unsound - the OP? If the OP suspects it has not been properly designed they would need to seek an expert opinion as mentioned by Mr Sheen. Having seen the photos and being an Civil Engineer myself i am extremely doubtful that fence has been designed by a competent des...

Re: Retaining wall replacement is an eyesore.

Mr Sheen This is a domestic structure built entirely on land owned by the property owner. The fencer has no obligation to give information to a neighbour and even if you could argue that CDM regs apply (which is doubtful) what does that have to do with anyone other than the Principal Contractor, Des...

Re: Retaining wall replacement is an eyesore.

The op is concerned about the structural integrity of the newly erected fence , these regs would help the op point out to the neighbour and the appropriate authorities if necessary that the op is responsible for ensuring a structurally safe fence is erected and give the op a basis to take action if ...

Re: Retaining wall replacement is an eyesore.

I am intrigued to understand why you believe the cdm regs would not apply to this construction project.? My understanding (given that they do apply) is they give clear lines of responsibility to ensure any structures are designed and installed by competent people to recognised standards. I would lov...

Re: Retaining wall replacement is an eyesore.

Unsure how you tackle questioning the design. I have been told in another thread that you can build any old structure in your garden and are not responsible if it blows down and kills someone...i remain unconvinced however. I believe in this instance because the client is domestic under the Cdm (con...
