Re: Tractors and telehandlers

Unfortunately there seems to be little that can be done by referring to any legislation. Your only legal action may be to report their driving (if you consider it dangerous) to the Police, as I previously suggested, because their speed and consideration for other road users must be appropriate with ...

Re: Tractors and telehandlers

Well Scrambler I have sympathy with you but I do not think there are any actual regulations that make it an illegal offence. There are, as previously alluded to, HSE guidance i.e. https://www.hse.gov.uk/agriculture/topics/machinery/farm-vehicles-5.htm but these are not laws. Perhaps a discreet word ...

Re: inheritance tax

As a joint tenant (as opposed to tenants in common) property goes automatically to the other tenant on the death of either tenant. Therefore if the house is worth £650k the half (£325k) will be under the single IHT threshold and no tax will be liable. If the estate due to other assets is then above ...

Re: Neighbour installed fence in wrong place

Is that what Conveyancer is saying? - no. For millenia we have had the ability to measure with a high degree of accuracy, the Pyramids are proof of that - we haven't lost that ability, for the most part, modern devices make it more convenient - not more accurate. Your whole argument fails when you ...

Re: Neighbour installed fence in wrong place

Conveyancer covers those very same misconceptions in this thread: https://www.gardenlaw.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=3149 Are you then confirming that LR maps and measuring devices have no relevance in helping settle a boundary dispute? If so, how do such disputes reach any resolution? Is that ...

Re: Neighbour installed fence in wrong place

Yes you can, GPS measurements using a Trimble are highly accurate, whilst many maps have greater tolerances.

Re: Boundary dispute

You would be well advised to consult your solicitor on this matter. You should not be seen to have acted in any way unreasonably.

Re: Neighbour installed fence in wrong place

Hi Morgan Sweet, if I’ve understood you right, what you’re saying is that if you want to avoid taking a boundary dispute to court then all you have to do is hire a surveyor to produce a report that clearly supports your position - because the law has it the other party must accept the report as fac...

Re: Neighbour installed fence in wrong place

Measurements were claimed to be highly accurate............... The really important thing to remember is that, for the most part, conveyancing plans are intended to identify properties and not to show their boundaries accurately. All maps, by their nature, have tolerances of accuracy. [/quote] Whic...

Re: Neighbour installed fence in wrong place

As far as the request from the OP for help from forum members there is much that can be considered. You are misleading the OP into believing there is a remedy for a problem that either doesn't exist - or if it does - would be considered de minimis . Your contribution to this thread has not helped t...

Re: Neighbour installed fence in wrong place

you own what is shown on the Title Deeds That is a total misconception as I know from personal experience. In 2003 Land Registry used a copy of an Ordnance Survey map that had not been revised since 1956, even though the two adjacent properties that were in common ownership in 1956 had become separ...

Re: Neighbour installed fence in wrong place

I Never give advice to anyone I only say what I would do in a situation or give my opinion on a post. Personally I would never buy property where the boundary feature does not reflect the plan and the lengthy conveyancing process provides adequate opportunity to check. My position on this case is t...
