Boundary wall ownership - Deeds are silent

Good afternoon everyone, I have posted asking for advice about a boundary wall in the “walls” section of this forum but I am now wondering if it is more of a question for this “boundaries” section. I don’t want to create a duplicate post on this section but I’m hoping that there may be someone here ...

Re: Boundary wall - Deeds are silent

Can you get hold of old conveyances of either your property or next door? I think you can do this do this through land registry. How farback do your own deeds go?. Are there any old T marks against the wall on any of the conveyance plans? Hi Cleo5, we have old conveyances for our land going back to...

Re: Boundary wall - Deeds are silent

...................this sounds familiar, is there another thread about it? The wall is likely to have a substantial footprint, if there are uncertainties about ownership - you wont know where the limit of your land is. Hi Arborlad, I think I have read this other thread but there they are talking ab...

Re: Boundary wall - Deeds are silent

Hi Puzzled, information that I obtained through my research, which suggests that the wall is their boundary sounds vague / hopeful rather than clear and decisive - in what way does it “suggest” the wall stands on their land? kind regards, Mac Hi Mac, Unfortunately it seems there is very rarely “cle...

Re: Boundary wall - Deeds are silent

Congrats! I can't do that. £2,500 is. A bit steep but not too bad .Get t several quotes. Try a local stone hedger. I know it seems a lot but it is a skill. It would be best if you both agreed to share the wall and could split the cost but if neighbour refuses and you want it rebuilt then you have n...

Re: Boundary wall - Deeds are silent

“You only had a phone call. Something written down would maybe prove useful.” We have written a letter to them quoting information that I obtained through my research, which suggests that the wall is their boundary. It is quite a long wall, maybe 50 meters and total rebuilding costs could be substan...

Boundary wall - Deeds are silent

We have owned our property since 1997 and during this time, neighbouring properties have been sold several times. There is an old stone wall dividing our property and the neighbouring cottage, probably older than both houses. About 15 years ago part of the garden belonging to the neighbouring cottag...

Our case was heard at County Court. Although Mills v Silver was regarding a prescriptive ROW, the Judge made a comparison to a Deed of Grant, saying that if the ROW had been granted expressly then the right would be there to make the ROW fit for purpose. I cannot remember the exact wording and no lo...

I am merely saying that if there is a grass track leading to a house over which there is an express right of way for all purposes, and the track is the main access, then the grantee can improve the surface to a hard stable one as part of his ancilliary right. As I said, what surface would be permit...

Dear Alan, I read with interest your last post, however as my original post was several years ago, this matter has long since been resolved. For your interest (if of course you are) we did employ a party wall surveyor to act on our behalf and all works associated with the said party wall have been p...

Lawrie, I know that Conveyancer is a retired "professional" but I am afraid I disagree with both his and your barrister's view, dare I say it! In my view it is totally unacceptable for your neighbour or his visitors to block the right of way for periods of up to 3 hours at a time, even if ...

If the farmer has alternative access to his land, why don't you offer to buy back the ROW from him, thereby eliminating the easement altogether! If he is "mean" as you put it, the offer of some cash might appeal to him.
