Re: Replacement Fence - Do I have any rights?

Hi, thanks despair, and everyone else for your comments and help. Yes, I checked earlier this week about legal expenses insurance and we are fully covered :)

Re: Replacement Fence - Do I have any rights?

No there have never been any problems with the fence in the past. I have today written to him to say that what he has done is unlawful and I am legally entitled to get him to re-site the posts to their original place on his land, as it was previously, and that this is what I want him to do.

Re: Replacement Fence - Do I have any rights?

What is the difference between "unlawful" and "illegal" please? I can sort of see what you're saying, but if something is "unlawful" is there anything I can do about it?

This is what I am trying to find out - "in what way" will it (potentially) affect any future property sale ???

Thank you.

Re: Replacement Fence - Do I have any rights?

After a big hoo haa, and a very heated conversation with my neighbour I have agreed that if he turns two of the back fence panels round so that the whole of our patio area will have the good side of the fence showing, then I can live with the lower level of the garden having the concrete posts and b...

Re: Replacement Fence - Do I have any rights?

Thanks Mac, totally agree. The last thing I want is to get into an altercation and fall out with them, and I have said as much. I have spoken to his wife today and she was rather defensive, saying it was their fence and they could face the panels whichever way they liked. I told her that I knew that...

Re: Replacement Fence - Do I have any rights?

Is the new fence in the same position as the old one. Unless any part of the new fence (posts or panels) encroaches on your side of the boundary there is nothing you can do about it. On a positive note the new concrete posts will be more sturdy and last much longer than wooden ones, the downside to...

Hi Baytree,

do I have any say in the matter at all?

no - it’s their property, not yours.

I’d still ask in a neighbourly fashion, though.

kind regards, Mac

Thank you Mac - I will do.

Re: Replacement Fence - Do I have any rights?

Thank you for your reply Dave57.

The concrete posts, where the 7 new panels are "good" on their side are encroaching on our property.

Replacement Fence - Do I have any rights?

We have a fence in our back garden dividing our property and our neighbour’s. The houses are detached. When we moved into the property the fence had the “good” side facing us with all supporting (wooden) posts on their side. Whilst away for a couple of weeks recently the neighbour decided to replace...
