Re: Fence height and ground level

So you build a garden room overlooking their garden and are annoyed that they are wanting to mitigate that and have privacy? I would let it be and maintain some communications with the neighbour. One is permitted by planning regs and does not stretch the length of the boundary. The other is unlawfu...

Re: Fence and neighbour problem

When you bought the property did it come with a map of the plot? If you were to give a 5 year old a photo of the above then they would draw the boundary from where the houses differ, putting the fence where the cream meets the grey stone and then follow the path. They would assume everything left of...

Re: Am I wasting my time or justified?

What other evidence shows the boundary? Are there piers on the other side of the drives, an old fence posts, old photos, sales pack? It is possible that your garage has been extended onto next doors land. On the other hand your neighbour may have taken advantage of you renting the house to extend th...

Re: Outbuildings in Front Garden

Which door does the mail go to? I cannot picture the postman or Courier walking down a long garden when they could use a lane next to the house.

Re: Neighbour building without consent

They sound like bullies. They have no right to interfere with your property whether they think you use it enough or not, are paying for hard landscaping or not or can change your land.

Do they have planning to remove the grass strip? It is normally required for drainage.

Re: Shared/Private road right of access in Scotland

“pro indiviso share of the solum of the access roadway tinted brown on the Title plan” That means that the 6 properties each have a title to the brown road so for example if the roadway needs repaired the bill is split 6 ways between all those properties on the Title. Adding additional properties t...

Re: Neighbour cutting trees and bushes on other peopel's/public land

We're trying but the bushes/hedging that they've removed have now changed the outlook from our home hugely. These all hid a pathway used by the general public, now it's fully exposed and the views from our front windows have gone from nice bushy greenery to stumps, soil and people looking across in...

Re: Removed hedge, right to privacy?

If my property I would put up my own fence or evergreen hedge or if money was tight be outside talking to the neighbour all the time being nice and busy body-ish. They will soon tire and put up a fence!
