Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

You seem to have a deeply unpleasant and unscrupulous neighbour, presumably you have his full name and address? You are surely not alone in thinking this way about the developer, who has assaulted another neighbour and threatened to take off the head of the planning manager at the council. He has g...

Re: Supposed previous owner dispute over fence

Hi Mac, Thanks for the reply. No we haven’t,we didn’t know whether that was a good plan or not, I don’t want to make things worse by making some sort of legal blunder Could I make things worse by contacting them or am I being overly cautious? I can see no reason not to contact your vendor, do you k...

Re: Supposed previous owner dispute over fence

Thank you all for responding. We also agree that it seems so excessive for what seems to be so little and the lawyer we spoke to mentioned “de minimis” but it seems that the sollicitor they have got involved must not have thought so. On a recent thread, the solicitor was demanding the removal of dr...

Re: Supposed previous owner dispute over fence

. He was again adamant it was the principle and we should take it up with the previous owners. The neighbour has got it all backwards - if he truly believed there was a significant error with the fence then he should have taken it up with your vendor at the time of erection, or at the very latest, ...

Re: New fence obstructing vehicles

In the recent fire, was the Fire Brigade able to use this access? Immaterial. Lots of houses don't have rear access for vehicles by design. If FB needed water to the back they would run hoses, not take a tender down a narrow lane. Not necessarily, it would be an indication of the available width be...

Re: New fence obstructing vehicles

Hi All, Thank you so much for your replies. I spoke to the guy yesterday and he doesn't seem to understand. I think it's a case of him just not thinking about what he is doing. He's also poured concrete between the fence and his building to create a (really bad) seating area. I will talk to my insu...

<>Hi all, We share a drive with our neighbors (2 detached houses) of which we bought ours 6 yrs ago, our vendors before us having been there from 1987,and in our S.P.I.F. it states that a mutual arrangement/agreement was in place allowing cars to drive to the back of our houses. Is the layout and u...

Re: charge on land, not registered

The organisation says the agreement should have been registered as a charge on the land at first registration. They also claim that the restrictive agreement is still valid despite not being registered with Land Registry. I tend to think that the organisation had over thirty years in which to regis...

Re: New fence obstructing vehicles

So the gist is that the owner could be wrong about the 3m. As the title plan does not denote the boundary. Does this mean that he cannot put up a fence that obstructs a certain kind of vehicle? Broadly speaking, yes on all three points............... OK thank you very much. I suppose the actions wo...

Re: Removing a Leylaandi hedge

Also I am concerned that the roots if we pull the tress out will go under his flower bed and upset the bed. it may be that we can cut the roots off . Anyone any suggestions ? It may be the neighbour will welcome this, depending on the type of bed, soil, weather, size and aghe of trees etc. When you...
