Re: Do I need to put a neighbourly agreement in writing?

I'll agree that the type of fence is different in each case; but not by a margin as great as a whole world. :)

Re: Do I need to put a neighbourly agreement in writing?

Joysprings appears to have clear views on the benefits delivered by the agreement Maybe I'm not looking hard enough? I’m keen to get the current dilapidated fence replaced, To me that clearly says that not having a rotten ol' fence is benefit enough for Joysprings to warrant the costs incurred. Per...

Re: Do I need to put a neighbourly agreement in writing?

My contention is they have an agreement of little substance: Kind regards, Mac That depends on how you look at it and Joysprings appears to have clear views on the benefits delivered by the agreement with his/her neighbour. Joysprings and neighbour have already agreed the way ahead for the fence; t...

Re: Do I need to put a neighbourly agreement in writing?

As long as you are content that the ownership of the fence will not change because you pay for its replacement and, from your point of view, getting the rotten old fence replaced is worth the outlay, carry on. Strictly speaking and as posted above, you won't be entitled to paint the fence, grow plan...

Re: windows ,pop ups and advertising

Not sure why you should suddenly start getting ads and pop ups etc. Have you changed a setting or three?

I'm using Firefox with Adblock Plus as an add on. Works well, none of that advert stuff on any (of several) forums.

Re: Roof line or existing fence line?

kittenscruff: in order for your neighbour to build their extension as I understand from your post, going over the projected line of the party wall, they would have to join their new wall into your wall. I suspect that you would not permit that. You mention that they do not need planning permission s...

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...

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: 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.
