Re: No boundary between neighbour's annexe and my garden

Hi outofthecity,

a simple solution would be to ask them to replace the obscured glass with some white frosted glass - or attach some white frosted film - at your expense.

kind regards, Mac

Re: Boundary dispute including unregistered land

Hi Garden2019, the rear boundary will become the small couple of inches gap that will exist then between the two fences. no, that is not right as a boundary is an imaginary line with no thickness. the boundary will be abutted by the outside face of your fence. all land beyond the outside face belong...

Re: Who owns the gate?

Probably a silly question but.... If I own the fence - no dispute. Do I automatically own the gate and posts - assuming that they are on the same alignment? My assumption is that I do, otherwise my neighbours gate and gate posts will be trespassing on my land. Am I right to think that if the gate a...

Re: Boundary dispute including unregistered land

This thread is running off at a tangent. OP has a boundary dispute. What title neighbour B may or may not have is secondary to the question of where the boundary line is drawn. It doesn't matter who erected OP's boundary fence. If it stands on what can easily be shown is the line of the rear bounda...

Re: Boundary dispute including unregistered land

Hi IdefixUK,

the neighbour may also own a RoW over the land shaded blue - if so his adverse possession claim would more likely fail.

I’m not sure how you’re able to make such a statement with such limited knowledge of what he already owns...

Yes Mac.
this forum is dedicated to the law in England and Wales (touchy subject this week :) ) and this is something we are made aware of when we join up.

just letting you know as it means responses on this thread might not be relevant under Scots law.

Re: Boundary dispute including unregistered land

Hi Garden2019, neighbour B is a complete bullsh|tter. from the details provide there is absolutely nothing to suggest your garden includes some of his land. I would keep any responses short and sweet and do not let him on your land - you don’t need to give him access for his fence. kind regards, Mac

Re: Do I need planning permission for a boundary fence?

Hi Al@n,

as I mentioned before, the map shows the routes.

you need to refer to the definitive statement to understand such things as how wide the RoW is.

in other words, you’re wrong to think the map shows the verge isn’t part of the RoW.

kind regards, Mac

Hi Al@n, I have no idea, whether the land we own is part of the highway. you need to ask your local council for a viewing of the Definitive Map & Statement that they maintain. this is a record of all the highways in their patch - the map shows the routes, the statement provides descriptions which m...

Re: Do I need planning permission for a boundary fence?

Hi Al@n, referring to the birds eye view and working from left to right, I’m suggesting that the first few metres need to be 1m tall and then the rest 2m tall. you need to establish whether the land you own is also part of the highway, though - as fencing off part of a highway would be a definite no...

Re: Do I need planning permission for a boundary fence?

Hi Al@n, any development of land (including a change of use) requires planning permission. planning permission is gained by having an application assessed by your local planning authority. to save the local planning authorities being swamped with applications, legislation has been made that grants p...

Re: Adjoining boundary, do I have one ?

I was wondering whether a house with an existing right of way over a piece of land could sell a small strip ol their land to someone else without a right of way. Would this pass on a right of way to the purchaser of the strip of land ? That's an interesting question! One might assume that as the ri...
