Re: Water Supply

Hi, Can I feel an INFRASTRUCTURE CHARGE coming on? You think the farmer is cheeky. Just wait to see what he says about SE water when they ask for the IC. How much is it these days? One of our neighbours in Penang found that the adjacent village (barusti huts) was running off his electric meter. :sho...

Re: Garden Wall backing onto Neighbours Drive

Hi, You could attach a steel ladder to the wall, assuming it is your wall*. It probably would not be pretty, but could be used as a fire escape if necessary ..... argue with your neighbour after the event. You say there is only a 1.2M drop on your neighbours side? Unfortunately, your window cleaner ...

Re: Fly tipping on private RoW

Hi Rob, This subject is interesting. But annoying too. I have to pay to dispose of my materials into a landfill site. Apparently land fill is not a "good thing". My mate has to pay for materials to landscape his garden. Those materials are dug out of a quarry. Also not a "good thing". All we want to...

Re: moving my boundary

So let's call this what it is ... taking, for your one's own personal benefit, what one knows belongs to someone else...wrong however you describe it! Hi, No, lets not. :D But there seems to be little future in discussing this particular case any further. But regarding the description suggested abo...

Re: Fly tipping on private RoW

Hi, This is almost getting amusing. I did some DIY improvements to my house. On completion, I was left with a brand new 8ft x 4ft sheet of insulated plasterboard. To big to store, not worth trying to sell .... transport makes it cheaper to buy new and have delivered. I am aware that plasterboard is ...

Re: moving my boundary

damage is not requirement for someone to be guily of trespass ,what makes you think it is. Simply standing on someones land without permision is enough. A trespass claim is a standard way to prevent someone from claiming prescriptive rights because simply saying stay off my land is not enough. Hi U...

Re: Fly tipping on private RoW

In general waaste is anything that the current owner defines as being waste and/or is something that is of no further use for him/her. Hi Rob, Having thought about this, discussed it with my wife, done a critical flowpath chart and a cashflow forecast, we had just decided that we needed this rubble...

Re: Fortnightly refuse collections.

This councillor 'cannot drive, takes taxis to and from meetings at County Hall

Then there was the council official who couldn't drive, so had to chauffeured around by a colleague. What was the non-driving officer's job?

Deciding which roads should have what speed limits.

Re: sales price v price paid

Hi OT ..... I sold my house. A couple of weeks later, I received a letter from my solicitor, saying the sum received did not cover all the expenses of selling, and buying another house. Please send £500. I wasn't happy, so I wrote to my building society asking for their final account. They replied t...

Re: Land Transfer From Developer To Council

The parcel of land in question, may form part of a much larger land-swap/deal between developer and council. Hi, You can't lean on the developer, but in theory, you can lean on the council. How many votes live in the mobile homes? Are there any organisations that want wildlife sites that you could ...

Re: Parking bollards on private land

This family will simply find a big vehicle that will easily remove the bollards. Hi, CCTV? Personally, I would find it too much agro to move my car, stop, get out, erect bollards, get back into car....... I feel the same way about gates. Lazy ***! I would be more inclined to leave a car transporter ...

Re: sales price v price paid

Hi The Land Registry website will show you the selling price of every house in UK since (I think) 2000ish. For free! Presumably, it wil be the same figure as Zoopla. Barbara's great-grandmother owned a pub in the Swansea Valley, about 120 years ago. It came up for sale, asking price £200,000, but wa...

Re: Fly tipping on private RoW

Do not know the layout but if it does not interfere with other access you could quietly move your fence/gate along the path to a degree and so prevent further tipping. Hi Rob(?) That's somewhere that I currently do not wish to go. If you do "enclose" the area you can treat the waste as your own and...

Re: extending privacy

Hi,

There is a maximum height for a fence/wall close to the road. I think you have already exceeded it. But if its been there a long time, there is little anybody can do about it ..... apart from stopping you making it higher.

I think.

Re: Putting a fence up to prevent children trespassing.

Hi, When was your house built? When were the houses opposite built? Was the "No fence" rule dictated by the builder/developer, in which case its a covenant. Or was it part of the planning conditions? To my mind, if it was a covenant, the only person that can enforce it is the developer, although the...
