Re: installation of electric gates/ ROW

how would the paramedic know the PIN? Easy. You just put up a sign by the gate with the pin on it. Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. not sure that would tie in with what the neighbour’s (the ones who have decided the gates are needed) are thinking... I'm not sure they are thinking that...

Re: Gutter Cleaning - Non payment of bill?

I am struggling to see the connection to garden law on your comment about contract law... It was a contract to do some work in his garden? Seems reasonable to me. Extra note: SJC14, sorry. I seem to have reported your post for piracy when attempting to quote it in a response. Damn touch screen phon...

Re: Land deeds question

OK, so first you need to know what the type of land usage it is currently designated for. My guess would be woodland, not garden. If you get permission to re-register as a garden then you could have a shed under permitted development I guess (so long as your coucil has not removed PD rights for your...

Re: Clearing a right of way hedges/shrubs

You can trim back to the edge of the ROW and not beyond, if use of the ROW is being restricted (scratching cars etc.). Unless a measurement is stated in the deeds, it would seem to be to the edge of the tarmac in this case. Don't trim beyond the edge, and in any case don't trim to the point where th...

Re: installation of electric gates/ ROW

Why on earth should you move house? As suggested above, a simple pin pad installed near the fob detector would enable the paramedics to let themselves in. how would the paramedic know the PIN? Easy. You just put up a sign by the gate with the pin on it. Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best.

Re: ROW created by indenture of settlement??

Looks very much like something a locally based solicitor could tell you about for probably a relatively small fee. It sounds like something that is likely to occur on other pieces of land once owned by the Earl mentioned. Alternatively, check with other properties in the area. The owners may already...

Re: Easement/right of way

Yes!.... buying a property with a right of way running through it means that people will pass and repass over your property .....As accepted and agreed to when you bought the property. But surely a right of way does not amount to permission to put the freeholder's life at risk in law? Surely it is ...

Re: Neighbour widened access point

My understanding is that unless there is something specified, it is usually considered that they can open a gate wherever they like on the border onto the track. Try putting some posts in at the border (but wholly on your land and not causing an obstruction), one at one end of their property and on...

Re: Shared guttering obstruction

This. It is annoying to have to do this, but the quickest solution is to fix it yourself. If you get complaints, then point out your easement. It is better to make him take you to court than to have to do it yourself. Especially as he would not likely do this as he will almost certainly lose.

Thanks for the replies, Ill get the plans uploaded this weekend. It will make the situation clearer. My main peev I suppose is that he has demanded this change to the land on my side, however has built a wall across "his" side, thus blocking access from the other end of the terrace. He has effectiv...

Re: Right of Way / Parking on Joint Access Area

There are two options I can see that you can use to deal with the situation. The first, is that it is illegal to block a vehicle from accessing the public highway. Note that it is not illegal to block a vehicle getting to private property from the public highway, only the other way around. You could...

Re: Boundary dispute

OK, so if there is a right of way which the neighbour has (sounds quite likely to me), the neighbour has a right to maintain the surface to a standard that allows the right to be reasonably exercised. So gravel would seem fine, especially if the ROW is vehicular as you seem to indicate. Check your t...

Re: housing development building plans approved include fences but developer is giving the impression they wont be insta

Your suggestion is absolutely spot on. However, from your description of the developer's usual approach I fully expect to see you back here once they've removed your fence and replaced it with their own. Sounds to me like they do as they please. If I were you I would put a notice or two on your fenc...
