Re: Neighbour Damaged my drive

I agree with Mac; this is a case of accidental damage, not criminal damage. As I posted earlier, the police will/should obtain the driver's details and pass that information on to the OP: but that will be the limit of their involvement. Resolution will have to be pursued via insurance company or civ...

Re: Neighbour Damaged my drive

You can gain his insurance details from this company http://stayinsured.askmid.com/about-askMID.html If i were you i would get the details of his insurance company and shock him with it . As far as I know all you can find out from askmid is whether or not the car is insured. The police may help wit...

Re: Neighbour's sewage on our land

We have now had to wade through and put up with the smell of our neighbour's sewage on our land for literally years. YEARS? You must be a remarkably patient person! On the face of it the remedy would seem to be quite simple; your neighbour must get the cesspool emptied at appropriate intervals. Cle...

Re: Boundary Wall Foundations

A neighbour can put footings for their boundary wall under your land. Some useful reading here on the Party Wall Act. http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/uploads/br/BR_partywall_explain_booklet.pdf and http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1996/40 Referring to the second link: If your neighbour intends t...

Re: Fence on Party Boundary

I pointed out it was on my side and he said he hoped I wasn't about to get pedantic over 1 inch; it is about 3.5 inches that I would be losing... A simple question for your neighbour: If the positions were reversed and you had placed slabs where the fence should go, what would his reaction be if yo...

Re: Building on boundary - help needed

As already posted read up on the Party Wall Act and be aware of what notices he has to send you, how far ahead of work starting and your rights to appoint a PWA surveyor etc. If your neighbour is now doing the garage build under PD rights its size must be considerably less than the previous proposal...

Re: who owns new surface on right of way

Hi Brainsey, The owner of the land may sever any fixture whenever they wish and the item will return to its status of a chattel. Taken from: http://e-lawresources.co.uk/Land/Fixtures-and-chattels.php Kind regards, Mac Interesting: thank you Mac. I'll have to look in the case summaries later.

Re: who owns new surface on right of way

PS the materials used to surface the "way" would become part of the servient property until such time that they might be removed and still be of use to their original owner (eg. block pavers can be easily recovered so should be offered back beforehand if they're being removed) Do you have evidence ...

Re: Boundary issues with developer

What I'm driving at is why isn't the dwarf wall at the front 1.4m longer? My guess is, because the land on the other side of it, which is grass verge, is not your property. Once this is assumed, it is obvious that neither is the parcel outside your side window. Kind regards, Mac edit: ukmicky's las...

Re: Boundary issues with developer

How does the remainder of the fence/wall/hedge line up between the back of the house and the river? With the rusty posts, with the front garden wall or something else? Sorry I missed this question. The wall and hedge are in line and they line up with inside edge of the gate, just in front of the ru...

Re: Boundary issues with developer

In one of the pictures it looks like your front garden wall is in line with the side of your house and then the line of the rusty posts steps out towards the allotment site. Is that correct? How does the remainder of the fence/wall/hedge line up between the back of the house and the river? With the ...
