Neighbours' pet rabbits eating my plants

We live in an urban area and one of our neighbours has several pet rabbits - initially we thought just one but it seems to have had babies. The rabbits have a hutch but are allowed to free range in the neighbours garden and recently they have begun coming into our garden and destroying our plants. W...

Re: Party wall or not?

Thanks, it sounds like it's pretty unlikely to be a party wall. If you wall is on the very edge of the boudary then a vent will trespass into the neighbours airspace and they can order you to remove it. I'm talking about a vent that would not protrude from the wall at all - there would just be a hol...

Re: Party wall or not?

are you suggesting the gable end of your terraced house might be a party wall? I would doubt this very much, based purely on common sense alone. Yes, my common sense pointed in the same direction, but our conveyancing solicitor was describing it as a party wall. I'm not convinced the lawyer is all ...

Party wall or not?

I've previously posted in the Rights of Way forum about a house we're in the process of buying, which has an issue with a difficult neighbour. Without dwelling on the neighbour issue again, the house we're buying is an end-of-terrace. On the unattached side there is a gap of approx 1m and then the w...

Re: Negotiating a new easement to resolve a dispute

I would do that if I thought there was anything in the deeds that might be relevant to this issue but honestly there's nothing.

Re: Negotiating a new easement to resolve a dispute

I believe it's because number 13 is considered unlucky. I once worked in a building that had no 13th floor, for a similar reason. Incidentally, I've found a website which has old maps of the area, including old LR maps from 1956 and 1936. The three terraced houses are there in both maps but the bloc...

Re: Negotiating a new easement to resolve a dispute

Ok, there is no other way to access the garden, other than through the house. Having the thought about the third house in the terrace piqued my curiosity, and I've just downloaded the deed. I think the LR plan is actually quite interesting - don't seem to be able to add it as an attachment but you c...

Re: Negotiating a new easement to resolve a dispute

Hi anniecc, how is the rear garden of the mid-terrace property accessed? (for the nominal cost of £6 per property I would be downloading the title registers and title plan for 'your' property and all neighbouring properties - your solicitor may have already done some of this?) Kind regards, Mac PS ...

Re: Negotiating a new easement to resolve a dispute

I meant to add, we've downloaded the LR deeds for the neighbouring freehold and their property does appear to extend right up to our wall. The title plan is not detailed though. There are four freeholders next door but we think only two live there, who are the two who are objecting.

Re: Negotiating a new easement to resolve a dispute

Thanks for all the responses. I don't have a plan of the properties to hand but the house we're buying is the end one of a row of three 1930s terraced houses and has direct access to the street via a small front garden. The block of flats next door is newer c.1960s. The disputed passage runs between...

Re: Negotiating a new easement to resolve a dispute

Thank you. That's what we thought, and why we thought attempting to negotiate a new, formal easement rather than claiming one based on long-standing use would give greater flexibility. The inability to make reasonable use of that wall is going to impose lots of constraints on what we could do renova...

Re: Negotiating a new easement to resolve a dispute

Thanks Mac. Would this apply only to the existing pipes and not any new services located on that wall?

Negotiating a new easement to resolve a dispute

Hi, first time poster here, please be gentle. I would like some information on the process to get a new easement granted. The situation is that we are in the process of purchasing an end-of-terrace property, which is a deceased estate/probate. We were under the impression that the property had acces...
