Re: Cherry tree roots going under neighbours drive.

Hi Rob-fet, the only thing I can add - in case you’re not aware - is that you are not required by law to keep your neighbour’s airspace clear of growth from your tree or his soil from the roots of your tree. this of course changes if said growth is causing damage. obviously it makes sense to offer t...

A couple of days ago, it doesn't look a lot of rubbish in the pic but it's a square metre and it's unsightly and you have to swerve to avoid it.

Then we should be seeing a hedge with gates leaning against it............
Hi OP,

you don’t appear to have addressed this important point...

Re: Who pays for new fence if I'm giving back land?

Hi Bobcat, ultimately, unless you are the original owner of your property - and we know you’re not - you are NOT responsible for maintaining a fence. this is because positive covenants - which is what this is - are not passed on when land changes hands. your neighbour needs this fact explaining to t...

Re: Ivy screening

Hi despair,

install tall poles with wires between

best to clarify - these would need to be 2m tall poles (or shorter) to avoid a potential breach of planning law because a fence greater than 2m in height would require planning permission first...

Re: Max. fence height away from boundary

Hi Dave_S, I know that legislation states that maximum fence height is 2m at the boundary between gardens the legislation states that planning permission is automatically granted for erecting fences that are 2m or less in height (exceptions apply - e.g. this is reduced to 1m or less for a fence adja...

Re: Untidy land with no clear boundary

If they cannot prove they are the legal owners they would have to prove adverse possession. As they haven't fenced it off, they can't start to demonstrate that. Whoever fences it off first gets in pole position. think having to climb over a wall might kibosh any AP claim anyway... everything I have...

Good theory BUT..... I'd be lynched by the local mafia. I have to be 110% within the law.
workmen arrive and complete the job - if they’re approached by a member of the public they do not have to disclose who has hired them - it’s not public property.

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

Hi shoopi, Is their builder right? with little to go on it’d be difficult to say. however, the odds of the evidence not supporting his theory are low. you can claim, due to how long his strip has been in your possession, that you now consider yourself it’s owner - and prepare yourself for a dispute ...

Hi, I have checked my deeds and all it says the transferer and the neighbour is equally responsible for any repair of the fence and does not specifically say who is the owner of the fence.
would you post the wording please

Hi Duncan1261, unless something has changed - and it doesn’t seem like it has - your neighbour’s property has a RoW along the passageway on No 5 - not all easements are expressly granted (written down). the idea that the law would allow for No 5 to build a house in its back garden and then sell this...
