Re: Forum Update

TO THE MODERATORS: It seems that more of Rosenberg's posts have been deleted here, which makes it difficult to follow what's been going on. All I can see are (presumably partial) quotes in other people's posts. I've been on the receiving end of his insults on at least two occasions, so he's hardly m...

Re: Boundary dispute including unregistered land

... The neighbours fence I believe is sited on the ‘blue land’ . We still have space to install our fence to adjoin the end post of our neighbour on the side. When we put up our fence I assume the rear boundary will become the small couple of inches gap that will exist then between the two fences. ...

Re: Party Wall Act

Thanks Uriah. Yes, I'm feeling much better now though I'm still hobbling a bit. I have had the flashing replaced as it had been lifted and the mortar to the side prised out - presumably by A/H neighbour. The chisel marks are clear evidence. I've also taken steps to secure the whole area, but don't w...

Re: Party Wall Act

Thanks very much for the info ukmicky. Since posting my question, I have found an old query which you and Conveyancer kindly addressed for me some years ago, and that has refreshed my memory somewhat. (See https://www.gardenlaw.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=11859 .) If I understood rightly, Conv...

Party Wall Act

Hopefully a simple question: does anyone know whether the Party Wall Act 1996 is the latest legislation on the matter, or has it been superseded / updated more recently? (FYI: My issue relates to a wall that was external to my house - on my side of the boundary - but which neighbour has subsequently...

At the risk of sounding like Sherlock Holmes, I would infer that every summer you get through a very small bottle of SPF100 - or you have found a novel use for an old sock.

Re: Wall into fence? Highway adjacent or not?

We’re hopeful to keep the first 2-3 rows of bricks of the walls as they are 1 brick thick and still sound. Thinking somehow fence on top of that of rebuilt the columns and insert smaller panels then we still have the base of the original wall. I will get photots taken of both sides and the height. ...

You might not mind your wife being photographed in the censored but I do! People like you SHOULD be on a database. Which ones are you on already? EDIT: What, I can't say n-u-d-e now? What's wrong with this site? Thank you for your concern for my wife Rosenberg. As far as databases are concerned, we...

Re: Wall into fence? Highway adjacent or not?

Hi IdefixUK, I read this: that Part (c) allows you to replace the wall with a fence up to the height of the existing wall then you’ve misread it - there’s no mention whatsoever of “replace”. kind regards, Mac The phrase 'maintained, improved or altered' would seem to cover it. Surely replacement wi...

Back-garden maggot breeding

The self-sufficient New Age numpty next door is now building a maggot farm in his back garden :roll:. I suppose it's another of his otherworldly gardening obsessions: the maggot condo is located on what must be the spiritual hub of his garden, right next to his flow-form and his pentagram of compost...

Re: Wall into fence? Highway adjacent or not?

I wouldn't have thought that your LA would be able to prevent you from erecting a fence the same height and length as your existing wall - although maybe a more informed member will have a different opinion. How old is the wall? I would take plenty of photos of the wall and its ivy covering - and co...
