Re: New fence over the boundary

I like the fact you have come on here with an open mind, you are coming across as a reasonable person! and there are a lot of unreasonable ones out there. It sounds like your neighbours in no way wanted to pig you off, they have given you the nice side (so try and focus on that pleasant aspect) the...

Re: When is your garden not your garden...?

Thank you both for confirming what I suppose I already knew what was coming..... Executor on a no completion no fee trying to gloss over unregistered land by the looks of it. We're first time buyers, and marveling at how the system works (or rather doesn't...) In any other purchase, you'd surely be...

Re: Neighbour built raised flowerbed against our garage wall

Our garage is wholly within our plot, as shown on our deeds. how is it shown on your deeds as wholly within your plot if deeds are words? do you mean it is shown in an accompanying plan? if so can you elaborate please - where does it show the boundary, if it’s not the garage wall? kind regards, Mac...

Re: Neighbour built raised flowerbed against our garage wall

I have owned two homes which have next doors garage as the boundary, so their garage wall as per deeds is wholly maintained by them is also owned by me, exactly as if it was a fence. I would check your deeds to make sure (ie don't assume) that your garage is wholly within your plot. The concrete bas...

Re: Do I need to be qualified?

You do not need to be qualified to cut back tree branches. The key is balance. If you are removing substantial branches from your side of the boundary then that can make the tree heavy to one side and in high winds they can fall in that direction. It is optimal to remove branches on both sides to ma...

Re: Wall into fence? Highway adjacent or not?

I wouldn't have thought that your LA would be able to prevent you from erecting a fence the same height and length as your existing wall - although maybe a more informed member will have a different opinion. How old is the wall? I would take plenty of photos of the wall and its ivy covering - and c...

Re: I want to 'adopt' my grass verge...

...the publics right of access will never end... The service strip outside of my property has no public right of access, only me as the adjoining plot can use it so it depends on what the deeds say. Boulder wise - this is common where I live and nationally: normally painted white to stop pedestrian...

Re: I want to 'adopt' my grass verge...

This 'service strip' is likely to be adopted by your local authorities transport department. You may own it but it will be adopted by them. Your deeds will have what ownership, maintenance and access that you have to this land and likely to have restrictions on fencing, hedging etc. I have a similar...

Re: Campervan Neighbor Vision Spray rules broken

I now regret removing a beautiful tree from our back garden that was meters from boundary, as he said it was blocking his light (it wasn’t) he just hates nature / grass and leaves. I wish I had left it as leverage now 😂 I’m sure if I left the beautiful tree alone he would of been complaining to the...

Re: Removing a Leylaandi hedge

Hi On our boundary, in our garden there is a leylaandi hedge which we want to remove. According to our deeds we are not responsible for the boundary that side. The neighbor the other side of the hedge has no fence. so if we remove the hedge then there will be nothing there . Are we obliged to put a...

Re: Boundary fence dispute

Surely all the council need do is install a bollard at the end of the path? The email address or webform to contact the Roads Department of the local Authority will be online, so will a phone call. Photos of exactly the above will make them action the removal of the paving and erect a bollard, poss...

Re: Access Required on Land Locked Land.

I changed Our Land to X as there is no reason to use B as it was already used... If the land registry agreed to merge the title of A and the area of land we are calling your land (X),the owner of A would not be able to use the ROW for any purpose that would directly benefit your land (X). And could ...

Re: Access Required on Land Locked Land.

A ROW gives the grantee the right to access defined land. The grantee cannot then buy more adjacent land and use the same rights to access the new land. Therefore you will have to negotiate with all. One thing your solicitor will have to check carefully is the precise wording of the existing pedest...

Re: Access Required on Land Locked Land.

The way to get vehicular and foot access to 'Our Land' is to negotiate this from all 3 houses named A, B and C as you will need to use their shared drive and buy a strip of A's plot (if the image is accurate). They may appreciate an additional property which will maintain the cost of the shared driv...

How do you know that?..........everything on the ground is saying the opposite, including your predecessors use of the land.

How large is this piece of land?
I have to agree - but the OP is being rather opaque, which makes me wonder with why.
