Re: PLEASE HELP! New home/ shared step/ building company dispute

I misread your post....thought it was steps but now see it is a single step. Surely, even though it is the builders fault, it would be far simpler for you and neibghbour to replace step with two separate steps with fence inserted in gap between. And at shared expense. Then you would both be happy ab...

Re: PLEASE HELP! New home/ shared step/ building company dispute

Sorry NHBC...still in existence. See their website. If your builder was a member then you would have a NHBC cert given to you by your solicitor when you plurchased house. They should repair faults for up to ten years from build but what is a serious building fault and what is just builder using wron...

Re: PLEASE HELP! New home/ shared step/ building company dispute

Can you live with it? Or is the issue of shared steps the problem? Does your house have any kind of Guarantee? NHBRC used to give guarantees on a new buid and any faults appearing within 10 yrs were rectified. If the company proves difficult then maybe you and neighbour could share costs to resolve ...

Re: Boundry Gate, Nosey Neighbours Council Letter

What about a stile? You certainly cannot place anthing on the park land but a stile would be entirely on your land. I too have ground that runs down to the park below. We put up a fence to keep our animals safe but that has disntegrated and we can easilyy step down to the park. The children jut used...

Re: Possible adverse possession in future

Yes. i did note the overly!however I can fully understand the OP' s. anxiety. I am puzzled at the planning regulations that allow planning to even be considered let alone be granted when the land is not even owned by the applicant. Why do planners not check? They have only to contact the LR to finda...

Re: Possible adverse possession in future

Naturally the Op is concerned about AP but any land in an attempt at AP would need to be fenced and everone except the person attemptting the AP excluded.(The law was changed in I think 2002 and it is 12 yrs.). Since the land is registered the op would be informed of an AP and would be able to objec...

Re: Neighbours and fencing

Just because he replaced part of it that does not give him right of ownership.

Who says the fence is jointly owned?
Does it say on your title who owns which boundaries or fences or walls.
You did not ask for the repairs to the fence .You did not agree to pay part of the costs so just ignore it.

Re: flat roof

PaulaR, Do not agree to anything the neiighbour demands. Get your part of the roof repaired by the most experienced capable roofer you can find. Terraced house rooves are repaired seperately on a daily basis throughout the uk. You are responsible for your own part. Not theirs. When the roof was last...

Re: flat roof

Have a look at this site ansteyhorne.co.uk. It gives goodish info on party wall stuff. Surely your surveyor should have an answer? If not try the RICS for advice. You can get half an hour free advice from a surveyor. It is an awkard situation. I think the only way is to speak to neighbours once more...

Re: flat roof

Party wall agreement! And if the neighbour disagrees with what you want then you appoint a surveyor.....another huge amount of money forked out. And what will any sensible surveyor say ? "I f your flat roof leaks get it fixed. Delay causes further damage to the timbers and the rooms below. And if yo...

Re: flat roof

I agree with span. Go ahead get it done regardless of neighbour,s "I'm all right Jack" attitude. A skilled roofer will easily be able to accommodate any alteration of the roof to give you a good sound roof taking into the consideration of fall. It maybe needs the replacing of wood underneath also. Y...

Re: Intensification, but no change of use

Are the pigs to be kept in he barn or free range in pig houses scattered around? Either way the smell will be unbearable. We had 300 or more pigs in a concrete building just 300/ 500 yards away. The smell was diabolical. Our windows could not be opened in spring and summer It permeated washing dryin...

Re: legal definition of a "structure".

These things are not clearly defined within a covenant. I would not term a planter a structure. A building, eg shed or greenhouse or another house then yes. Your covenant may well be to protect the land from being overdeveloped. Within our covenant ,with its prohibitions, it states" without the perm...

Re: legal definition of a "structure".

Do you actuallu need a planter? Or are you just querying what could be classed as a structure? Restrictive covenants are often inserted for a reason such as avoidance of nuisance to other residents or difficulty of access though of course there are many more reasons. Surely in signing your conveyanc...
