Re: Neighbours Rights to open and clean windows

A metal washing line pole embedded in concrete on the boundary in front of each window with your perspex attached to the poles would stop this :wink:

Re: Can the council force me to clear my garden?

If you are going to write to the council, don't bother replying to the muppet that sent you the letter but the head of the Council. I would head it "complaint" as then certain procedures would have to be followed by the council. Enclose a copy the letters received and say something along the lines o...

That's what the solicitor provided by your insurers should be doing - not you.

Re: ROW being blocked/obstructed

The OP should speak to their legal insurers asap as there is usually a timescale to report any incidents that could give rise to a claim.

Re: Boiler Flue protrudes onto our property.

If it were me I'd speak to the neighbour and tell them of your plans and let them know that you are giving them plenty of time to resite their flue if they so wish before you build. BUT Once the car port is up, if the flue is still in situ and the neighbour needs to inspect the flue then it will bec...

There is - the neighbour leaves the OP fence alone and installs one on their own land ;-)

Re: Neighbour objecting over my ROW

To the OP, what is happening regarding your legal expenses cover? If this incident is covered, sit back and let them deal with it. Remember most policies have a clause in that states that the insurers must be advised of any incident that could arise in a claim which usually has a timescale (90 days?)

Re: Neighbour objecting over my ROW

The devil in me says to do as the neighbour suggests ie you knock his door before you use the right of way.

I'd start at 1am then 2am then 3am ........give it a couple of days (i'd probably do it for a couple of weeks!)

Bet they soon change their tune :twisted:

Re: Shared path

I would say contact your legal expenses insurer now as you usually have a time limit when a "dispute" happens to inform them.

Usually they will help you write the first letter and if your policy is with More Than they have online legal letters you can use.
