Re: How to buy unregistered land

Apologies for resurrecting this post but I have some progress. I've been maintaining the land a lot more in the last few months than in previous years. It's now all cut back and there is a lawn wehre there was once 8 foot tall weeds and dense brambles. I had a fence guy come out and give me a quote...

Re: Advice on moving fence

The driveway is shared between myself and my neighbour to our left number 12 (circled on plans) and plot 21(also shown in their garden). there is no housing to the right of our shared driveway. You say the driveway is shared, that's not reflected in the plans, how does #12 make use of the drive and...

This is slightly confusing, is it two different types/styles of fence or do you have an L shaped boundary and the neighbour intends constructing an L shaped garage?

Re: Who pays for new fence if I'm giving back land?

Hi, I have lived in my property for 12 years & never even questioned why the garden fence is wonky. A new guy bought the top floor flat next door & is converting it to rent out. It turns out all my garden doesn't belong to me as shown on the deeds, and my neighbour the other side who has lived ther...

1/ I can't remove the rubbish on the boundary as it's not a significant obstruction.........


Anything that is on your land can be removed, irrespective of easements or appearances.

Re: Chartered surveyors

You were advised to employ a competent professional to carry out this work, you chose to ignore this advice and are now suffering the consequences. Hi Aborlad, surely I didn't need to employ someone to sink some bricks into the ground? It would have cost £100's when I could easily do it myself. I w...

Re: Chartered surveyors

There was quite a long post 'bout a week ago including images - it was deleted before I had a chance to view. Hi, yes, I did post a lengthy and clear description of what had been going on but things turned very nasty very quickly with the owner of next door so, assuming we are about to enter anothe...

Re: Unregistered Land

Trouble is, my neighbor has at some point took his fence down and has used the land for over 40 years. It is still unregistered to this day and now he is going to try and register it adversely. Enclosing land and excluding all others is one of the requirements for adverse possession - removing a fe...

Re: Unregistered Land

You need to get your own fence in now, halfway between both properties would be the best guess without more to go on. Your neighbours use of the land is just a forerunner to him erecting a fence and the first to act has the advantage, neither can make a claim for AP until the land has been enclosed ...

A couple of days ago, it doesn't look a lot of rubbish in the pic but it's a square metre and it's unsightly and you have to swerve to avoid it.

Then we should be seeing a hedge with gates leaning against it............

What did your letter say ? Ignore post above as I thought you were asking about his letter. My letter: I’m writing to inform you that we have a right of way at any point along the boundary of our land on foot or with a car and if you build your fence I will gain an injunction to have the fence remo...

How would you advise going about this in the first instance please as it would involve removing a section of the established hedge and removal of the metal gates currently used as fencing?

Thanks


Have you established who owns these?

Re: Open space to garden land

There are a few properties in our street who have bought small areas of land behind our homes. We intend to extend fence out around 3/4 of the land as this will keep it out with the visibility splay and satisfy the roads department. Can you clarify whether this land is to the front or rear - it see...
