Re: DECKING AND FENCE, HELP PLEASE :-(

PS,

When you come to sell, get hold of CANAL BOAT, and/or similar magazines. There are estate agents who specialise in waterside properties. Do you have mooring rights?

Re: DECKING AND FENCE, HELP PLEASE :-(

As Mac says, you need to stop focussing on your loss of view as there is no right in law to a view. Hi, I agree, you do not have a right to a view. Maybe if it was defined as "loss of amenity" ..... ? I believe British Waterways must be consulted on all Planning matters within a specified distance ...

Re: SEARCHES

Hi, My insurers have finally produced the confirmation required. The premium will be about £60 more than we are currently paying. In the meantime, I had contacted RIAS (Retirement Insurance Advisory Service) who are (were) targetting retired civil servants, to see if they could help. They replied th...

Re: Public bench overlooking my garden

Hi, Is the siting of a bench something that would be agreed at a Parish Council meeting, and recorded in the minutes? Maybe they agreed to site the bench, but didn't specify which way it should face? I think your local library will keep copies of the Parish Council minutes. Is the bench adjacent to,...

Re: Proposed derogation of grant of right of way

Hi,

Did the Planners impose any requirements on parking arrangements?

I have seen cases where the Planners have required that vehicles must be able to enter and exit the property in forward gear, and that the manouvereing space must never be obstructed.

Re: SEARCHES

Hi, This morning I "done a Google", searching for HIGH MODERATE POTENTIAL NATURAL SUBSIDENCE, and found a discussion about the very same problem. https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=3482379 It seems that the insurers are not bothered about potential , they only want to know about a...

Re: cats killing baby birds

Hi,

Is it still the case that "Nobody owns a cat"?

You could try asking the RSPB for advice.

Re: cost of obtaining a VEHICULAR Right Of Way along back alley

Hi, I believe a bicycle is a vehicle (but a pram isn't). So if anybody accessed your back garden once a year, for 20 consecutive years, riding or pushing a bicycle, you would have a prescriptive easement for a vehicle. This needn't be in the last 20 years, a previous occupier when the houses were pr...

Hi, We are buying a house in the East Midlands. Three months into the procedure, our solicitor has produced the results of "Searches", which say the house is close to an area where the ground conditions have a moderate to high potential for natural subsidence . Our lenders are demanding a letter fro...

I am very tired of seeing so many properties especially bungalows advertised as reduced for over 65s with lifetime this or that Hi Despair, I haven't seen bungalows reduced for over-65s, but have seen them restricted to buyers over 50 (probably with other restrictions such os "no dogs", and "alloca...

Re: Private section of Road Stopped-up

Hi, I'm guessing that Mweb is saying "No, it is not shown on the Definitive Map" ... so it ain't a PRoW. But it might be, or have been, an easement. My understanding ... which might be wrong ... is that an easement benefits a property (and whoever lives therein). Question ... where does this "highwa...

Yes you have to provide 10% deposit but so does your buyer and any good solicitor arranges for the 10% from your buyer to be used for your new purchase Hi Despair, True ...

Re: Option to purchase

Hi, Things progress. We now understand that the person we thought was the builder, is actually somebody who "underwrites" (?) the sale of one house to finance the purchase of new houses, by means that I don't fully understand, but part exchange has been mentioned. I understand that the old lady is s...

Re: Definition Of Frontager

If front boundary is to the road = definitely a frontager. I've also read that a back boundary to the road = a frontager. But not a side boundary (ie the road isn't either in front or behind the property). Hi Eliza, That's interesting to know. Thankyou. I assume that the LA decree which road that y...
