Re: Boundary dispute including unregistered land

To fence or not to fence? So I’ve been saying to my husband since this all started that we need to get our own fence up and quickly before we come home one day and property B’ owners are out there and moved their garden boundary to any position they wish. Obviously we’d have every right to do so bu...

Shouldn't the soak away be on their own land though? And should it be at the surface? Currently it just runs like a brook over mud and then soaks into our garden.



These are questions that should have been asked - and answered, by the Environment Agency over a week ago.

Re: Do i have a right to use this rear passage?

........... so the idea that you would be erecting gate is probably not a sensible idea. I would have been interested to see how the letter from the solicitor was worded, since his client does not appear to be owner of the path. Unless that ownership can be proven there is no legal mechanism whereb...

Re: Extension over right of way

It would be worth getting the plans and deeds for the neighbours as well, how is the way currently laid out and used, paths, gates, fences etc.?

Trying to get my head around how a boundary fence that has sat in the same place for 60 years can be overwritten by an inaccurate title plan OS map.



In most circumstances it can't.

The council`s planning advertisements were all tied to lamp-posts in the wrong street, despite the error being repeatedly reported to the planners.



If this happens again, simply move them to lampposts in the correct street - provided it can be done safely.

Re: Adverse Possession - Council Acquired Land

Does the bridle path pass between the end of the garden and the land? No, the land could actually be considered part of the bridle path as the land was the edge of the railway track. The garden is south west facing, with the land running parallel to the end of the garden and the bridle path (railwa...

Re: Extension over right of way

Question really is if they say no do we have any options open to us to contest as row will still be available and just as convenient There will always be options, you will have to negotiate not just with the owners/occupiers but anyone who has lent money on the properties.................and cover ...

Re: Do i have a right to use this rear passage?

How old are the properties, are there any other with similar layouts?............ If road A was built 10 years ago and road B 5 years ago - you're unlikely to have any rights over that land, if both were built 100 years ago - you've almost certainly got rights over that land. There are three proper...

Re: Do i have a right to use this rear passage?

If you own the fence you can place a gate in it, only the owner of the land beyond it can prevent its use. How old are the properties, are there any other with similar layouts?.............it's not unusual for rights to be undocumented, often the existence of the way itself is the evidence.`

Re: Forum Update

Yet again you are derailing someone's thread. Perhaps you should start a thread of your own where you can post about how hard done by you are, and whoever wants to indulge you can do so. Incidentally, I did start a thread of my own but I got abuse on that as well. That thread was a SCAM - pure and ...

Re: Boundary dispute including unregistered land

It would seem to me that you may draw the boundary of your garden by taking a straight line from the corners of the gardens of your immediate neighbours. If that is the broken red line, and there is no fence there, I'd be getting one up as soon as you can, and perhaps butting it up against your nei...

With multiple threads and unanswered questions - you're not helping yourself. https://www.gardenlaw.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=21577 So, this is a different land and a different neighbour to your other thread....................? Whatever, it's always best to update when something is resolved.
