Re: Prescriptive right of way..

What evidence are they using to prove that an easement has been created and can you produce any evidence to rebut the presumption that the easement had been enjoyed without permission? That is what is crucial. I would look at old maps to check when they changed their back garden into a parking spot.

Re: Garden soil against side of my house causing internal damp

When remodelling they put in new drainage pipes, removed the path and levelled the soil off to a higher level against the side of my house...On seeing her today she informed me that in her opinion the soil was no higher, that it was ok to have it against my house, that the damp could be from some o...

Re: hedges on “local open space”

Even if you can claim “ad medium filum ” of the former street that only means up to the subsoil and not the road itself. Ergo no hedges.

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...
