Re: Legal Cover and Solicitors Advice

It seems your neighbour has indeed been forced to the negotiating table with this initial offer of £2,000. On the surface I would not believe that your house would be devalued at all by the ROW being extended by 15 meters unless that makes it unusable. And it depends on who is assigning the value. I...

Re: New member and this must be a first for this forum

If I'm playing devil's advocate then then the fence is only 4ft high? So it would not appear to block light to your windows. It also does not look terrible. The curve at the top is actually quite attractive and if you saw this picture in isolation it would look perfectly normal in my opinion. Some m...

Re: Boundary Storm brewing help required

. Under great pressure (my neighbour and two sons) we settled on marking the drive so at least we had a starting point with a verbal agreement that we'd separate and take legal advice. If these are the marks I've already referred to, you MUST ensure they are obliterated. When you learn more about w...

Re: Complex boundary issue

All three experiences had the word dispute regarding where the physical boundary was in relation to the legal boundary but it matters not whether it is a dispute or not. To constantly state that in any dispute (or not) that you are legally restricted into owning only what you saw on buying land is ...

Re: Neighbours built onto our land and right of way!

Both! Once the forum can see clearly what you are explaining then you will get solid advice. Take as many pics as you can for your own records and then post the important ones here. There are a number of really good people on here who give great advice when they have all the facts. And a pic of the ...

Re: Complex boundary issue

You can't change the fence without the neighbour's consent. it seems either it's theirs anyway (they paid for it) or it is a jointly owned fence, built astride the boundary. If it's jointly owned you can replace it with an identical fence, but you can't make it bigger or smaller without their conse...
