Re: Private access road - resurfacing a section.

I think so, it's tarmac so not part of my driveway but it lies within my boundary (see photo) it is part of the shared private ROW and must be kept clear, which it would, only difference would be the surface. Correct its not part of my land, but I am finding out if its possible for me to block pave...

The tarmac part I wish to block pave over isn't my land, I wish to incorporate it into my driveway so it runs in a straight line but I don't own the tarmac part.
There's your answer then - it's not yours and so you can't. End of....

Re: Private access road - resurfacing a section.

Information missing is your title plan showing the yellow hatched area. Does that include all or any part of the tarmac covered land you now wish to resurface? That's what I am wondering - ie is that bit of land shown on the Land Registry's Title Plan for the house or no. If it is on the Title Plan...

Re: Parking on ROW - Private road

Admits I'd go ahead and buy the bigger car I'd planned on in your position - they'd no longer have the "as your car is a smaller one" excuse and that may (just....) stop them. If it doesn't - then on their head be it if you clipped their car accidentally.

Re: Neighbour's planned extension overhangs into our yard

I would think it's best to send them a letter (Recorded Delivery) fast - in which you lay down what amounts to "necessary maintenance" and that their work isnt covered by that. You will therefore be refusing access to your garden for any "improvement" work on their house. Take photos of the current ...

Re: Neighbour's planned extension overhangs into our yard

BTW - Neighbours (and their tradespeople) are only allowed to legally force access to someone else's land (under that Access to Neighbouring Properties Act) for "necessary maintenance". Replacing the garage roof with one that is the same and being done because the roof has "had it" would be "necessa...

Re: Interesting story about the cost of a boundary dispute

I did feel sorry for the owners of that parking place. Whilst there is enough room to park one car - what about if they (or future owners of their house) want to pick two there or a darn great van? Looks like the other guy is just being plain devious and it would have been wise, in hindsight, to "se...

Re: Misrepresentation

Have you found out what the "next move" is yet?

With any luck their solicitor has taken a look at the situation on the ground and told them "Don't be so daft. Leave things be".

Re: Misrepresentation

Well it looks as if they havent been able to steal the land or get "prescriptive easement" over the land. So - if I'm reading this right - you have everything that's yours now with you - ie all your land and they don't have any rights over it. I can't see that there is anything else they can do to y...

Re: Neighbour insistant on right of way

I can understand the logic of why poster is thinking of "parish councils" to adjudicate in these cases. But there is one huge snag to that - and that is that one or more of the members of this might be biased in favour of one of the households concerned. This is particularly true if it's a small pla...

Re: Neighbour insistant on right of way

Surprised you arent watering your garden - a LOT - with a hosepipe. Coincidentally at the time trespassers are trying to pass through. They surely dont want a drenching at regular intervals. I soon found the benefits of having had a hosepipe put in here when I had problems with my neighbours trespas...

Re: Open space to garden land

I can understand/agree the Council not agreeing to any building on the land. Re using it as a garden - then a bit of lateral thinking might be the way to go. That being rather than a very standard garden - eg patch of grass, surrounded by border of shrubs - then maybe some convenient "weed" seeds mi...

Re: Untidy land with no clear boundary

I've never heard of any British privacy laws. Logically, they are most unlikely - with far too many of us crammed into Britain and therefore we have to be able to pay rather a lot often to get a home that has the privacy we should be able to take for granted. Any day of the week one can see what a h...

Re: Untidy land with no clear boundary

If a property hasnt changed hands for so long that it's still on the traditional "Deeds" system - rather than the modern-day title plan, then the owner of that land should have their original paper "Deeds" to hand and be able to show them to you to prove it's their land. Some people will do things l...

Re: Untidy land with no clear boundary

Start by contacting Land Registry. It's only a few £s to get Title Plan and Registry Entry - assuming there is a Title Plan for the land. My feeling would be that it doesnt belong to the neighbour at all and they are lying to you - I mean who would flytip on their land for instance? or have such pro...
