Re: ROW to park on our property being blocked by neighbour

the access road provides additional access to the rear of the OP’s property I'm not sure this observation is relevant. The access road provides only access to the rear of OP's property, not additional access. My point is that whilst OP has contractual rights to access the rear of his/her property o...

Re: ROW to park on our property being blocked by neighbour

Unless the deeds to your property include rights over B's property you can only access your property from the access road. If that is too narrow to get a car through then there's nothing you can do about it. I don't know if you are using the wrong terminology, but you mention having a license from t...

Re: Insufficient gravel boards causing neighbours soil to drift

It would be a good idea for you to email nextdoor and point out the defective workmanship, and the risk of their land spilling over the boundary. Request that they remedy it before it falls over of its own accord, and that you accept no responsibility for keeping their garden from spilling over. The...

Re: Insufficient gravel boards causing neighbours soil to drift

They may anchor the post underground on your side of the boundary. I’ve never heard of someone anchoring it above ground with a plug of concrete. I suspect that might constitute a trespass.

Re: Insufficient gravel boards causing neighbours soil to drift

I’d keep on shovelling if I were you. When their patio starts to collapse they may realise it is very much in their interest to sort this out, at their own cost.

Yes you can. We also got rid of a dead protected tree 2 years ago and the consent did not specify who we used.

Re: Retaining Boundary Wall

My initial view is that it’s all your responsibility. The original houses show a gradual stepping down of the houses. When your builders bought up your row of houses and demolished them they wanted a level site. They therefore reduced the levels at your end and built the wall on your land. That mean...

Re: Is neighbour's flooding our responsibility?

If the natural lie of your garden is that it forms part of a slope then each garden will have the right to discharge natural surface water down the slope. There is unlikely to be very much of this. Some water may also percolate downhill through the soil. I don’t know. I’m not a specialist, but that ...

Re: Local business trying to force sale of my house to them

There is possibly another option. By the sound of it you have quite a large property adjacent to a housing estate. Is the plot big enough to split up? It might be worth investigating whether you can get outline planning permission to demolish/alter and for 2-3 (or more) small houses on the plot. Pu...

Re: Rights of way help! Is it for water and drainage only???

You need to get a copy of that 1967 conveyance to better understand what rights they have. However, unless expressly limited, a ROW granted by deed is usually free of restriction.
