Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

The Rightmove image is a bit blurry. Just to explain - in the left hand corner it meets the his neighbors fence which was slightly lower in height at the time. In the corner of his neighbours garden next to the fence a shed can be seen. The right hand corner portion of the fence was covered in folia...

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

Success! The bottom photo is the Rightmove one from 2013 taken by the estate agent showing the old fence. The other photos show how the fence, installed in 2015, is now. It is a shared boundary fence with his next door neighbour whose fence has stayed in its original position. One of the photos show...

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

In the days running up to the meeting yesterday I read lots of posts on this site. There were some suggestions that perhaps the amount of land encroachment should be taken into account when deciding on a way forward. If it was a large amount then I'd have no hesitation in taking it further but in re...

No arborlad- we didn't take a fencer.

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

Am still struggling to shrink photos. I think I've done it but get the same message that the file is too large. Re our meeting today he is still adamant the fence with two doglegs was replaced in its original position but can't explain the Rightmove photo taken two years prior to the fence replaceme...

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

Thank you all. I do have legal expenses cover according to the insurance agent however I haven't been with the same company for more than a couple of years. I'm concerned that my current insurers may refuse to act for me if the fence was moved prior to me taking out cover with them.

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

Thanks IdefixUK - tried that and failed for some reason! Morgan Sweet - thanks for that. I was thinking that as it has escalated to him shouting down the phone at me I don't think I do want to just have the fence removed and laid on his lawn. You advice sounds good but costly so I think I will conta...

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

Thanks for the info. Have been trying to do it from my iPad but will probably be able to do it from my desk top tomorrow. The Rightmove photo is from three years ago when he purchased the property. I don't see how he can argue with it but he is insistent the fence has not been moved and the wall was...

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

We have moved on apace since this morning. It has now become a dispute. The brother said this morning the fencer must be at fault after I showed him the position of the original 1957 concrete boundary posts and reminded him of the photographic evidence from 2015 that the fence had been perfectly ali...

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

I'm a bit puzzled arborlad. Why do I need to get a fencer to look at it and why no paper trail? I'd rather have one which would show I'd proved the encroachment and acted in a civil manner in order to have the issue resolved.

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

I have had a reasonably amicable meeting with the property owners brother.He admits the fence is in the wrong place but kept blaming the fencer. He intends to contact the fencer but it was done three years ago so I don't think he will get much joy there especially as I know the man who owns the fenc...

Re: Dreaded Leylandii

Because the landlord will, hopefully, care more about his property than the tenant who is more bothered about creating privacy and not concern himself further than that. If someone contacted me and told me my tenant had planted ten leylandii in my garden I would do something about it. Maybe the tena...

Re: Dreaded Leylandii

Many thanks for all your replies. I will wait for a response from the landlord. If he is not interested in doing anything I'll cut the branches and roots back hard from my side.

Re: Dreaded Leylandii

Their tenancy agreement, if they rented through the same agent I use, will have a clause re not causing nuisance, damage or annoyance. The trees have been there between two and three years and are already a considerable height and branches are growing through the fence panels. I will be selling both...
