Re: Court

I was going to say that. :D
Also, you can buy your neighbour's (or anyone's deeds) from Land Registry, often online and immediately.

Re: Just a quick check!

Shouldn't the new boundary be recorded on a plan at land registry?

Re: Neighbour digging their heels in.

If you put it on your side of the boundary then it's yours.

Re: Urgent advice neighbours guttering on our property

I'm curious about what the bloke who sorts out party wall act agreements actually does for his £500?

Re: Planning Conditions

A planning fee would still be payable if planning permission would have been needed anyway, even if PD rights had not been removed. Also, some planning departments (about ten years ago) were charging where PD rights had been removed as they didn't know it was supposed to be free.

If you object and then they win. Do you get to pay their costs?

Re: Could a pergola be classed as a fence?

For Alicia's sake the web-site address below will enable her to enjoy a quiet read of the GPDO Part 1 as amended in 2008. http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2008/2362/pdfs/uksi_20082362_en.pdf Thanks - but I'm familiar with it.

Re: Access over neighbours flat roof

Some years ago we awoke on Christmas day to find a neighbour had (maliciously?) parked his car exactly across the bottom of our driveway and we couldn't get off. The police weren't interested and said it was legally parked. I'm impressed you got the police to make him move his car for your scaffoldi...

Re: Planning Conditions

We had a case recently where there was a specific prohibition of an activity on the planning permission.

Re: Neighbour spitefully planted trees ON boundary

Our neighbours claim that the hedge between us is on the boundary (despite our deeds showing a line between two brick wall one meter further towards them). But if it were the boundary (in another garden, in another world) then the useful land would be reduced year on year as the trunks thicken. They...
