Re: Damage from today's Storm

Thanks to all for your contributions. Next door has replaced their fence panels but has made no communication by way of apology or comment on the damage/demolition of my bin enclosure so, presumably, he expects me to foot my own repair bill! Lets hope Dennis doesn't repeat the scenario this weekend ...

Re: Damage from today's Storm

Just to clarify, my enclosure was well constructed & withstanding the wind quiet happily until two of neighbours fence panels blew out, one launched itself & flattened my bin enclosure before crashing into our French doors, only minor scuffing which will polish out &, luckily, the glass didn't break...

Damage from today's Storm

My neighbours fence blew out this afternoon during today's storm & has TOTALLY wrecked the 2m x 2m panel surround which houses our wheely bins, coal & wood bunkers, the fence panel also hit our French doors but thankfully didn't cause any damage or smash the glass. Is he liable for the damage?

Vehicle using my drive as a passing point

We live in a rural lane, mine & my neighbours adjacent drives are at a point where the road narrows & vehicles & lorries frequently use the bottom 1 metre or so of our combined drives as a passing point. Over several years, this had led to the bottom of both of our concrete drives becoming cracked &...

Re: Bee Keeping

Thanks arborlad Seems it’s a more common problem than I thought. So it seems nothing can be done if bee keeper won’t cooperate although it beggars belief that with a two acre field at his disposal, he chooses to site his hives 30 ft from my property! I am rather surprised there seems to be no enviro...

Bee Keeping

Hi all About 4 years ago our neighbouring farmer allowed a small section of his land adjacent to our property (probably leased) to be used by a bee keeper who erected several hives. The hives were just 8 metres from our boundary & approx 15 metres from our kitchen & conservatory. The bees caused us ...

Juebs; This was the same type of posts that I had in my garden & the wire mesh (when it was there) was interwoven along this so the fence was actually in the middle. You need to check you r deeds or with the land registry to find out whose fence it is. If it’s yours you can do what you like but if i...

Maverick is spot on, talk to the council about it again; go higher if you have to. There is definitely a restriction on the max. height a fence/hedge can be when adjacent to a drive/private road access to the public highway. A few years ago myself & 3 neighbors had a similar problem with our private...

Just reporting good news. Checked the deeds (should have done that first!) & it turned out to be the neighbours fence so I offered to reinstate the rotting wire fence I removed with a nice, shiny new one. Man of the house wouldn’t hear of it; storm in teacup, stupid having 2 fences & leave it as is ...

Trouble over removal of old wire fence

Hi, newbie here. We recently moved to a 1960’s house with a very large garden, both in need of much work. The previous owner advised that she believed the boundary fence on one side was our neighbour’s responsibility but was not sure & there is no information on the deeds. There are actually 2 fence...
