Re: Hedge height agreed (through solicitor). Neighbour ignor

Thank you for all the replies, which I found very helpful. I have decided to stop being such a walkover.

In the course of coming to an agreement through solicitors, they agreed to maintain their hedge at 2 metres. This was an explicit condition of the agreement. They have breached our agr...
