Re: New home, neighbour being bloody-minded!

Hi, Its your boundary (or the resonsibility is) but your neighbour's fence. Presumably your neighbour's landlord erected the fence to compensate for the earlier absence (or condition) of your fence. Such action is frequently suggested on this forum. The question is, did your neighbour's landlord pla...

Re: Raised edging to driveway boundary.

PS,

Do your neighbours have the same problem getting out of a car that is parked at the side of the road?

Re: Raised edging to driveway boundary.

Hi,

My solicitor told me that a step must be more that 2" but less than 6" .........

.... or was it more than 2" and less than 6"? Can anyone help?

Make your step 2 feet high, so that they can see it.

Hi, How do you know it is this particular lad? Have you seen him? Or have you been told by one of the other lads? If the latter, it is probable that he regards it as a spectator sport, and will not be bothered by you making a fuss. How old is the boy? Some years ago, a public swimming pool had probl...

Re: Fly tipping on private RoW

Hi, Yesterday, I loaded my SUV (goods vehicle?) with half a dozen buckets of MY rubble, and a load of timber off-cuts, etc, and drove to a privately owned waste site (owned by a large waste disposal company). As I drove into the yard, I saw a sign saying "No traders, this site is provided by ****** ...

Re: Only Legal ideas Please for cats

Hi,

Your neighbours are unlikely to even try to control their cats, they are under no legal obligation to do so.

Try doing a Google for INVISIBLE FENCE FOR CATS. I don't know if it works.

Re: COUNCIL TENANT REMOVED MY FENCE

Hi, Its probably your word against his. But if he has done this sort of thing before, then he probably has a police record .... not that that is likely to help you. It might be worth making that the first entry in the diary that you bought specially for the purpose. I believe DC promised action agai...

Re: Neighbours brick extension _ remove my Wisteria?

Hi,

Did your neighbour build his wall totally on his side of the centre-line of the house wall between your pair of semi-Ds?

I don't know if it matters, just asking.

Re: Tree planted on my property by neighbour

Then perhaps its time to put a picket fence up defining your boundary. Hi, In a case like this, do you eventually get to own the tree, or does your neighbour get adverse posession of the land under his tree? The council can get all snotty if you erect a picket fence in places that they don't want o...

Re: Access via alley to back of garden

Hi, I'm assuming that each £8 is the total of £4 for the map and £4 for the register? Some of us may have problems justifying an unnecessary £4. If that were me, I would spend my money in dribs and drabs. OK, I'd get both register and plan of my house, 170, cos I really ought to have it. Examine to ...

Re: Garden Wall backing onto Neighbours Drive

I believe there must be a certain size area behind a dwelling, to act as a refuge in the event of a fire (or an escape route). Please provide a reference. There are very few estates built in the last 30 years where that either a) could be done and/or b) has been done Hi Mugwump, Sorry, no can do, i...

Re: Can they just move the right of way they have

Any thoughts as to what would be 'a considerably reduced price' would be. 10, 25, 50, 75% of asking price! Hi, Suggest they place the house in an auction, make sure that the problems are mentioned in the legal pack. That way, you know that any offer/bid you make will be within £1000 of what somebody...
