Re: Neighbour granted permission to build on our ROW

@SwitchRich regarding valuations - his house is currently worth £400,000 and he estimates it to be worth in excess of £500,000 once the work is completed. The increase is considerably more than 3%. Based on this, would the calculations you proposed vary by the same amount? Hi Butterfliesandbees, Th...

Re: House Extension in Private Road

Gotta love this forum and the good advice you get. It might also be worth taking pictures of the road now before the work has started so that you can show the state it was in. And I like the comment offering a gift of monies should there be any damage caused by the work. Perhaps acknowledging this i...

Re: Elderly neighbor has tripped on a path i own but they have a row- terraced housing

Hi Matt, Thanks for the update and it must have been a worrying outcome for you considering you could have been liable for this! However I don't think you will be able to send the cost of the works to your neighbour and try to force them to pay. As I understand your position they have a ROW over you...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

I wish you could post some pictures here. How come you won't? Surely the more information you put out the more attention you can get onto this issue?

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

I have followed this from the start and I tend to agree. By allowing the fence to remain it seems you have acquiesced. I believe personally from reading nearly all the posts here that you are within your right to remove the fence. If you neighbour when he comes back from holiday tries to put the fen...

Would it be lunacy to remove said fence since he is away?
You'd know when he comes back as he would try to put it back up :)

Re: Neighbour granted permission to build on our ROW

Hi Butterfliesandbees, I thought I would comment on the potential sale of a ROW for you as valuing it is truly a dark art. When you think about the value you should consider the reduction in value to your house added to the increase in value to you neighbours house. This gives you the total possible...

Re: Elderly neighbor has tripped on a path i own but they have a row- terraced housing

Also, if you post 4 more times you will be able to then post images to the site. This will also significantly help the forum in assessing any potential liability you might have here. Common sense would say that there would be none but it might be worth examining your house insurance to see if you ar...

Re: Who is responsible for fence on allocated parking?

It looks to me like the fence in the picture is the back garden fence of the properties also shown in that picture. I would suggest that each section is the responsibility of each of the houses. I also looks like the fence futher away in the photo is newer or has been replaced seperatly. Would this ...

Re: Right of way obstruction

I have been thinking about your posting and it is possible that some of the other houses (properties) along the private road may well also be part of the "retained land" mentioned in the deeds of the triangle land. Would it be possible for you to draw out a simple sketch map of the situation on the...
