Re: Retaining wall replacement is an eyesore.

Re: Crossing a general boundary = trespass?

Re; The question of adoption. I was wondering if the MOD, when they owned and used the estate, had an arrangement with the council for street cleaning and repairs, and that is why there appears to be no official adoption as would be found on a newly built estate. From 30 years experience of living ...

Re: How can I make neighbour pay his fair share?

Re: Dead dangerous tree dispute

I don't think tree surgeons tend to be well versed in how insurance companies operate. If your insurance company believes that your neighbour was responsible then they will recover the cost from them.

Re: Crossing a general boundary = trespass?

I've seen Have you looked at no. 5s LR docs? I've seen their title register and plan from Land Registry - the ones that cost £3 each.

Re: Driveway access

You never mentioned vehicles parked opposite as ell. Ambulances getting on to drives is immaterial. Unless the drive is long they just park on the road.

Re: Neighbour’s fence against our wall
