Re: Painting Neighbour's Boundary Fence, Putting Fence Infro

There doesn't have to be a gap, does there?.I would have thought it can touch the other fence, as long as you don't affix to it.

Re: New House - New Fence

What did the property information form, completed by the vendor, say about ownership of fences and movement of boundary features? What are the neighbour's reasons as to why a fence erected by the former owner of your property would be his land? Is he unhappy about the position of the current fence, ...

It runs down the side of the last house in the row and along the back of our properties.A new house is being built to the back left of our access drive ...

Re: deed of variation

no, it seems the colouring on their land is superfluous and has no legal bearing, i was hoping the extension may have blocked the original route onto your land but it appears not. I guess there are 3 things your d & sil can do apart from move (which seems easier said than done): 1. Offer money to th...

Re: Paying for neighbours fence

For a belt and braces approach if you install on your land: take photos of the current situation, and photos when the new fence is installed (preferably showing the old fence in situ next to it) and keep receipts for the purchase of the fence and installation (unless you do this yourself). This way ...

Re: deed of variation

The neighbour's RoW over your d's garden (as coloured on her plan) has a start point on the boundary where it is accessed from the neighbour's land. Has this start point been blocked by the neighbour's extension, meaning they now come into your d's garden from another point on the boundary?

Re: liability questions around drainage

Tell him the water is not being artificially drained to his land, it is natural run-off, which will cause problems in severe downpours and when the ground is dry, therefore he needs to sort out his own drainage. This should be pretty obvious to most people now with the warnings of flash-flooding and...

Re: deed of variation

My only potential leverage is - on my daughters plans it does show the route of the ROW, but this shows it to start on the neighbours property. That part has been built on by them, so effectively they have already wiped it out on their side. Could d and sil do anything to force there hand with that...

Re: boundary walls

I think a pre-determined intention to use neighbouring land as an escape route may be considered differently to a spur-of-the-moment decision (e.g climbing over the wall) especially as he appears to have deviated from the plans submitted which show a fire escape at the front of the house?

Re: boundary walls

It might be difficult and expensive to find out who owns the wall - simply erect a couple of posts and a fence panel to prevent use of the gateway as someone previously mentioned.

Re: liability questions around drainage

If the land drains naturally towards the neighbour and his land is nsturally 2' lower than your land then I doubt the construction of the patio has contributed significantly, if at all, to the drainage of water onto his land.

Re: Can trees be a private nuisance

Trespass of roots & branches is not relevant as the law gives you the right to remove the trespass. The other things I think are subjective and I can't see them getting anywhere with it - the mature trees were there when you purchased the property so it's a case of caveat emptor. I would request the...

Re: Neighbour slices my Patio to fit new fence without askin

I would point out that he is trespassing on your property and he has no right to enter your land without asking permission. I would also expect him to make good the damage/gap he has made to your patio at his expense, otherwise you will take matters further. You are allowed to express annoyance at n...

Re: Can trees be a private nuisance

Without going into ins & outs , the CAB is pretty much correct if the trees are considered healthy. Best to negotiate with the neighbours but, ultimately, if they do not wish to contribute it is unlikely you will be able to make them.
