You can unilaterally 'maintain' the roadway but not, necessarily, 'improve' it. In other words, if it's a gravel track you can fill in potholes etc and restore the 'existing' surface, but your awkward neighbour/owner could certainly object to the surface being 'metalled' with tarmac if he doesn't wa...

There is nothing preventing him moving between field A and field B (that is in your control). What he is not allowed to do is access field B from the ROW Are you sure about this? My understanding is that you can (or could) prevent him from accessing 'B' altogether, if necessary seeking a court inju...

I have no doubt that you have lost fish in such circumstances and my earlier apparent scepticism (bordering, I admit, and now regret, on facetiousness) does not mean that I am in denial or that I lack sympathy for the loss. Having said that, I was only reflecting my own experience, which is that my ...

I would like to have my fish pond without a net As indeed would I, but I'm realistic to know that a heron would soon come and eat the fish. By the way, what sort of fish to you keep? Mud-skippers, presumably, which like to pop out onto dry land once in a while, because in my experience cats and wat...

Land Registry

I have just discovered that the Land Registry has (presumably within the last week or so) re-freshed the look of the on-line register and, in so doing, has removed the information on the 'index' page about when a change was last made to the register in respect of individual properties. This very ser...

Surely 'adverse possession' would only come into consideration if they had fenced off the strip in question and physically excluded / prevented the registered owner from using it themselves? Without having done so, then as Conveyancer suggests presumably the most the 'trespasssers' can claim is a Ro...

Inconsistency between title plan and land registry plan

Conveyancer Your opinion on the following situation would be of interest. Properties A and B were formerly within one historic title, now divided. The title plan (rather poorly drawn) with the deeds to property A shows a straight line for the boundary feature - an established hedge pre-dating the su...
