Re: Definition Of Frontager

I'd agree with Collaborate's definition of frontager - ie a house (or other building) that "fronts" onto the road. If what is in front of the building isnt the road - then the property isnt a frontager (ie even if using the road for access - or having a side boundary to the road). If front boundary ...

Re: Neighbours claims after building work unreasonable?

I think it's fair to say they're testing you to see how soft you are and how far they can push you. They're clearly self-interested selfish pisstakers. Ignore them completely and totally from now on. Don't engage on any level with them. Not even to reply rejecting their demands. plus 1 My goodness ...

Re: Old house with boundary - now being disputed

Ignore them. Your wall and your house went up at the same time. Their house came along a lot later. You even have the photos to prove it. Game, set and match to you. Don't even bother to engage in conversation with them. At most - you provide them with copies of the photos showing your wall was ther...

Re: Insisting on a right of way? Or not?

Personal viewpoint - I'd want the safeguard that a ROW would definitely remain (ie the one through the farmers land) - just in case some "bright spark" ever decided to build on the park. One never knows whether there'll be some idiot that might decide on that at some future point.

Re: Developer wants to put new foul waste through my garden

I'd worry that the second any one of these other houses had a drain problem that it would impact on me - ie my drainage would be problematic too and/or I'd have people in my garden dealing with a drain problem that wasnt my responsibility (but I'd be the one suffering the disruption). Whilst I can s...

Agreed.

Re: 3 not wise men

I would be inclined to think it's more to the point than ringing up if neighbours are trying it on to know where the outside tap and hosepipe is. Assuming the elderly neighbour is brave enough to "coincidentally" decide to start watering your garden with the hosepipe the second the neighbours were i...

Re: 3 not wise men

I'm interpreting those quotes as they have got steam coming out of their ears and are trying hard to provoke a response from you. If they succeeded in getting responses from you in writing telling them just where to get off, they would probably just use that against you (whilst carefully not mention...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

I would have thought the obligation the neighbour has to tell you themselves about the water being turned off in 72 hours would be a legal one and, if so, a Court would frown upon it as well that the neighbour didnt tell you this. The only way you knew about the forthcoming turn-off of water was bec...

Re: Access, shooting and damage

Another way to approach this might be to contact the local animal rights group (presumably there will be one? - you could try to find them via Greenpeace or Friends of the Earth or put up a message on local Facebook page asking them to contact you privately). They might be able to advise you how to ...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

I am reading this myself as the neighbour exercised nepotism to select the workers to do this work and that was clearly absolutely wrong (as they should have put the quoting out on the "open market"), rather than choosing their personal favourites for it. In OP's position I would tend to go personal...

Re: Claim of money disproportionat against the works carried

You are still at the information gathering stage. I suggest you call for a full copy of the works schedule, referenced to the current amended regulations. The schedule should break down the associated costs, and contain copies of all invoices (you must check the VAT reference numbers if any). You c...

Re: House Sale States a Right of Way

That raises a lot of questions beside what that wording means: 1. Why did you assume your neighbours were crossing your garden? Did you think "I must have given them permission to do so personally and then forgotten about it and that's why they are doing it"? 2. Why did you think there was a gate in...

Re: Neighbours extended garden into shared alleyway.

I sympathise re this. The neighbour across the back alley from me in my last house was like this. Fortunately, I caught him in the act trying to put paving stones down on his side of our back alley and he was informed sharp-ish that I'd get onto the Council about it if he didn't stop RIGHT NOW. The ...

Re: Boundary covenants

Sounds like you're experiencing "New neighbour syndrome" from her. That being - the neighbour has put up with whatever they don't like for literally years. However, the second a new neighbour moves then they try it on to make new neighbour do what they want. It does sound like there is a covenant ag...
