Re: Is close boarded fence permitted on agricultural land?

If a farmer can put a 6ft steel spiked fence across his land I see no problem with a 1.8-2m close board fence on the edge

Re: Elderly neighbor has tripped on a path i own but they have a row- terraced housing

Put a heavy spring closure on it so it cannot be accidentally left open.
In other words, raise the stakes by making sure that the old lady couldn't manage to open it

Were I him I would move away..
That is the only bit I agree with from your post

Re: Elderly neighbor has tripped on a path i own but they have a row- terraced housing

Your post comes over as somebody who has become paranoid about Covid and doesn't appear to be aware of current guidance. Most people can apply a modicum of risk assessment and take whatever measures they deem suitable. It may not be the same that you believe is needed. All that has been published, e...

Re: Tree on unregistered land.

It sounds like a bit of misunderstanding of what was said. It sounds like he advised that the tree that was on the other side of the fence is dead. He then pointed out that it leans over your garden and if YOU wanted it removed then it would be at your cost. I think he was making it plain that even ...

Re: Specificity in lease wording and non compliance

My opinion is that it means
Reasonably interpreted that drying laundry on a balcony Is prohibited and will be considered a breach of the lease?
I think the intention is that no laundry should be visible externally.

Re: Shed roof sawn off and new shed overhangs onto my land

They have claimed that 'all houses in Wales own two feet of land outside their walls.
Take him at his word and saw off his overhang

Your shed shouldn't have been overhanging his land anyway. The same applies to him.

Ask him for the legislation pertaining to this 2ft ownership of neighbours land

Re: Neighbours blocking street with parties

I think the Met Police need to go back to school .in spaces reserved for Blue Badge holders, Only if there is a TRO in force. If its just paint on the road and no sign then it is not an offence Be careful about quoting Met Police and traffic laws as London has some different ones to the rest of the ...

Re: Conifer about to be planted

But as it has not yet been planted then op is in a position to install a root barrier beforehand. If you warn him now then by not fitting a root barrier, you will possibly be seen to have failed to mitigate the problem as you had identified it before it occured, and were in a position to pre-empt it...

Re: Elderly neighbor has tripped on a path i own but they have a row- terraced housing

There is nothing stopping every man and his dog, even in covid times, to use the row to access the neighbour. Not hard to keep social distancing at the door. If OP is making it impossible to achieve social distancing then they are the one that is in the wrong. I would think that that action may be c...

Re: Trees blocking light

All depends on such things as prevailing wind, no roots on ops side to hold the tree upright etc. No guarantee of going the neighbour's way.
Sort of karma if OP destabilise it so that it falls on his land

You can of course cut back every root or branch that invades your land ...but must offer to return the arisings to the neighbour which they can refuse
And if you cut the roots and branches back on such high trees there's a good chance that you will destabilise them
