Re: Title Deed Boundary Accuracy

Thanks for all the replies so far! I have a feeling that the boundaries could become an issue in the near future after overhearing my neighbour. I have taken a photo of the deeds showing the boundary but is a bit blurry https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img923/1223/eXHjR4.jpg What I will do tomorrow i...

Re: Easement and Neighbours Cars

I didn't find what I thought I was looking for in the end - there was a lot of restrictive covenants but for the developer. I did notice a slightly different section: PART 2 Rights granted for the benefit of the Property A right of way at all times for all lawful purposes on foot over the footpaths ...

Re: Easement and Neighbours Cars

so the wording doesn’t mention “gain access to” as you thought - the easement is an unrestricted right of way. Indeed, but there may be something else in other paperwork that I received when the house was bought. I will have another look. how often is the parking happening? if it is occasional and/...

Re: Easement and Neighbours Cars

Mac I will dig out the deeds later and copy the wording. I cannot find the exact article about posts / bollards that I was thinking of but I did another search and found this: https://www.brownejacobson.com/training-and-resources/resources/legal-updates/2017/07/easements-recent-case-law Kingsgate De...

Re: Easement and Neighbours Cars

where did you read the stuff about bollards? you definitely can’t install a bollard and lock it so that no one else has access, but it doesn’t therefore follow that you can install a bollard so long as you give the neighbour a key (the RoW is not for them, it’s for anyone wanting to go to/from that...

Re: Easement and Neighbours Cars

I like that idea - get a bit on money out of them :-)

I was wondering about a bollard / post that could be dropped. I did read somewhere that anything used to impede access must be equal for both parties - i.e. I cannot lock the bollard and not give them a key

Easement and Neighbours Cars

I have a house built in 2000 with an easement that allows the neighbour to my right (and the only neighbour at the end of the cul-de-sac) access to their property across my land. We had a situation a while back where their visitors were using my land to park and blocking access to the drive in front...

Re: Possible Retaining Wall?

Mac Just following on from your post … the land of adjoining properties benefit from a “right to support” one each other - your land has the right to support from his land and vice versa. if support is withdrawn, resulting subsidence, damages may be sought. If the support is removed (in this case th...

Re: Possible Retaining Wall?

Mac

Thanks for the information. Nothing has happened yet but it is useful just in case he does remove the support!

I seem to be surrounded by numpties that seem to think they can do whatever they like without thought for anyone else. Previous neighbours have been brilliant

Possible Retaining Wall?

If it is not one thing it is another in my corner of the world :-) Attached is the view onto my block paved area of drive - my house is to the right. I am not sure what might happen yet and I am pre-empting what may happen just in case. My neighbour in the property to the left has said about increas...

Re: Title Deed Boundary Accuracy

Thanks for the replies. To answer / clarify: I'm no expert! but it would be interesting to know how long you have owned it and whether it was like that when you bought it? I mean was it tarmacked to that extent? The tarmac / paved areas are the same since the houses were built and have not changed i...

Title Deed Boundary Accuracy

Hi - first post here! I have had a read through the general discussions in this forum regarding boundaries. Am I right in thinking that the boundaries shown in the title deeds are not necessarily accurate? My house is about 20 years old and there had been a slight disagreement on where the boundary ...
