Re: Neighbour built outbuilding to fence

How high is it? If it is more than 2.5m high then it needs to be 2m away from a boundary.

Re: Septic Tank safety responsibilities

There is this from the US ..... https://www.onsiteinstaller.com/editorial/2018/06/why-do-children-continue-to-die-in-septic-tank-mishaps I emailed my house insurers to ask if I was covered in the event of such an accident. Despite a confirmation of the email being received there has been no answer i...

Re: Right to light to WC window and tree

I suppose the issue is that any opaque , man made structure would definitely block light immidiately. Whereas a slow growing deciduos tree doesnt. I couldnt see where there is a calculation about light loss and at what point it is actionable. Sound, for example, has clear parameters for the amount ...

Septic Tank safety responsibilities

So my neighbours are still refusing to comply with EA law and remove the old septic tank from my garden ( See other threads). Despite most other people in the village having complied. I was considering another tack ... One of the neighbouring properties has a positive covenant in their deeds to 'mai...

Re: Right to light to WC window and tree

Someone will correct me if I am wrong but I believe 'right to light' rules only apply to other buildings not trees or shrubs.

It will probably annoy them though, so consider any consequences or counterfire possibilities ....

Re: Can a solicitor 'fib' in their correspondence?

Is this not related to the pro forma of a pre court action refered to recently in another thread?

Although I dont see how someone could force someone to sell them anything if they didnt want to?

Re: Local business trying to force sale of my house to them

Rent your house out and use the income to rent a smaller place that you want to go to anyway.

Then wait until he makes you a reasonable offer?

Re: Being Taken to Court Over Boundary

This sounds absolute nonsense and I would not waste a penny getting ‘legal’ over it, I would respond myself and fuel their legal bill. It was a mistake engaging with it. The solicitor appears happy to take money from an elderly person. From the info given here it is impossible to work out what the ...

Re: Parking space

I’ve checked. The parking space is part of his tenancy agreement and for his exclusive use. Perhaps we are overthinking this ... If the EXACT parking space is allocated to the tenants flat then all that needs to be done is to tell the landlord that the tenant is happy with his friends car using his...

Re: Life Tenancy

A life tenant does not have a landlord. A life tenancy is an interest under a trust, in which typically the life tenant is entitled to the property (to live in it, or to take rent from it), until they die. Life tenancies are often to be found in wills, especially when it's a second marriage, and th...

Life Tenancy

Just wondering if anyone can give a breif summary of this? Context is my long simmering border dispute if with a life tenant (LT) and their Landlord. Neither have ever shown the current or past LT agreement or any map of its (garden) area. Suspicion is because it would prove my position. Main questi...

Re: Parking space

Seems to be a creeping of assumptions here ... A sorned vehicle (Like my motorbike currently) could still be insured and have an MOT. This vehicle was driven quite recently apparently. Having Insurance and MOT can also be checked online. Also a sorned vehicle could be unsorned online in seconds by a...
