Re: House Extension in Private Road

Hi SJC14, I'm not opposed to making an extra "contribution fee" to the association but not prepared to be held to ransom. I'm trying to find out if they have any legal stance stopping my workers or trades coming onto the road. Cheers I agree, that is why I said gift so they do not think it is anyth...

Re: House Extension in Private Road

If I shared a road maintenance and one owner had builders for several months coming and going on heavy trucks then I think it would be nice if that owner gave £50-100 each as a gift for the trouble and extra wear and tear to maintain good relations. It is their choice to build and cause nuisance to ...

Re: Is it Amenity Land or Not?

Check your deeds and any other associated material on what the land is for. It is plausibly common land owned by the estate you live in and owned pro rata between all owners. It is possibly amenity land in that water, electricity, broadband is buried 2ft below the soil level, so taking down a wall a...

Re: Minimum width of path

I think I have answered my own question.. A private right of way on foot permits you to: pass and repass on foot between the dominant tenement and the public highway; with or without a load that one person might be expected to be capable of carrying; or pushing a small barrow or trolley or perambul...

Re: Neighbour granted permission to build on our ROW

Some photos would help here. Why does the private ROW exist...ie can you only access part of your property or garden via this route? If you built an extension would that give you direct access and not need to use the private ROW? If the latter is correct then surely it makes your property worth more...

Re: Neighbour’s fence against our wall

The fence was initially on the neighbour’s side before purchase. Later, it was moved to our wall I have always lived in new builds and the boundary has always been 50% between the 2 houses. That gives each access to maintain their walls (and also somewhere to put my 6 recycling bins form the counci...

Re: Neighbour’s fence against our wall

Is this a garden wall or wall of the house? What does the deeds and estate plan show as boundaries?

Re: What is this on neighbour’s fence?!

Felicityfern, Just plant tall growing shrubs in front of the wall and soon you will not see or be troubled by what the neighbours do. .Its an ugly wall anyway and needs some enhancement. I think the ugly breeze block wall is the OP's, the concrete fence is the neighbours. The perspex is weird - I g...

Re: Fencing Green Belt Land

I understand from an agronomist is a notifiable weed and should be removed There is no such thing as a notifiable weed in the UK. Himalayan Balsam is a problem in that it produces lots of seeds, esp along rivers. Otherwise it is quite harmless. Japanese Knotweed... I think also thistles, ragwort & ...

The roots of Hornbeam are also shallow roots so they should not interfere with the buildings foundations.
Agreed - same for Beech (as long as both are kept as hedges)
