Re: Help my garden wrecked when neighbour replaced fence!

You don't some have any rights to grow things on your neighbour's fence. They might argue that the weight of your plants has reduced the life of their fence. You need to get trellis and posts and build a free-standing structure to support your roses. You can't attach them to the new fence. Were your...

Re: Neighbour accessed land to paint fence without permissio

If your house was built in 2005 you could phone the local planning department and ask if permitted Development Rights have been removed. (They have for most houses built since 2000 in our area.) If they have then you can report them to planning enforcement about their shed.

Re: Neighbours' Conservatory Plans

Did you object to the application (in writing to the planning department) on the grounds that it would be using some of your airspace? If you did then the planners should have taken note and asked for a revised scheme. If you didn't object then the planners might have assumed that you didn't mind.

Re: Please need some truthful advice garden access!

Re: fence posts

A shiller is a person acting as decoy in a trick or a gamble situation. Such a peron is suitable for use as backfill when digging post holes.

Re: Help please with boundries.....

It might be being a bit hasty saying the neighbour shouldn't have that land. Perhaps he bought it? Maybe it's on his deeds? Perhaps the fence has been there more than ten years?

Re: Established Fence Boundry and Tree's

By my calculations the trees need to grow to 20" in diameter before they touch the fence. How long will that take?

Re: Established Fence Boundry and Tree's

As long as he's planted them on his side of the fence then you'll be fine.
