Re: Right of way

YOU are the one that is choosing to block your back gate. Neighbour isnt the one blocking your back gate.

Re: Neighbour audio recording

Placing the white noise generator inside a bird box (or possibly one of those bee box things that are popular now - hollowed out of the tubes for bees) would likely mean he wouldnt be able to figure out why his audio recording wouldnt work. That could work to your advantage - as he sends one back fo...

Re: Have I lost the land?

Is that a serious question Mac? It appears rather flippant. A Poster asks for advice to help him recover land that he legally paid for, he believes he has the paper Title to the land and the evidence to support it. There is NO rule of thumb, if you own the paper title then you and only you own the ...

Re: Have I lost the land?

The wall is not made of bricks from the house which was built 1923. The bricks are part of the garage build that was erected in 2003. They match perfectly. I understand a previous owner (not my seller) built the wall after a dispute with my current neighbour to stop bushes and ivy encroaching. It a...

Re: Have I lost the land?

I understand a previous owner (not my seller) built the wall after a dispute with my current neighbour to stop bushes and ivy encroaching. It appears he made a big error by conceding the land. The neighbour has admitted they did not get along at all. Well I suppose one thing is clear now. That is y...

Re: Have I lost the land?

OP needs to clarify with Land Registry, but I believe the "general boundary rule" they frequently quote is deemed by them to be accurate to about 1 metre. So, with this fence being 3 metres away from the boundary, then it would appear quite clear the neighbour has gone beyond any possibility of quot...

Re: Have I lost the land?

You are still at the stage of gathering facts by the sound of it. Do ring Land Registry and ask to speak to someone specifically about this and see what they have to say. The other option for contacting Land Registry re this is to go onto http://www.moneysavingexpert.com to the housing sub-forum on ...

Re: Have I lost the land?

You may be best off at this juncture to stick to idea of moving fence when next door is unoccupied and working out what your "worst case analysis" situation is if his adult children try and argue the toss and move it back again. Perhaps, at that point, you could appoint a surveyor to act on your beh...

Re: Have I lost the land?

Well I guess it's progress of a sort that you are now quite clear it is your land. He has admitted it's yours. The thing about stealing someone else's land by adverse possession though is that I gather the would-be thief (ie this elderly neighbour) is darn soon advised to never admit that the land b...

Re: Vehicle using my drive as a passing point

Have you thought of putting a chaingate fence there across the boundary? That would prevent them using your drive for passing purposes - but you could undo it to gain access to your drive yourself.

I've just read my way through that article linked to - and was nodding in agreement throughout it - and thinking "Yes....thats my NFH being described there".

Re: Unpleasant Neighbour

I get where you're coming from. My next door neighbour is elderly and many people think she's sweet/harmless/etc/etc and I know she is a veritable "Jekyll and Hyde". They get the "sweet little old lady" act and don't see what it's actually like to live next door to her. Add that she is a "local" and...

Re: Neighbour's debris

I read it that they are wishing Japanese Knotweed onto the person getting the rubbish in their garden. I guess you've read it as - "You might be better able to deal with littering neighbour if there was JK included in the flying debris". Unfortunate phrasing if it's option 2 out of the possible ways...

Re: so fence being evicted after 32 years,while on holiday

Now confused. You talk about "bright white posts...over into your property by 5 to 12 inches". From that it sounds like they've put these posts in your garden. But you are now talking about going for adverse possession. Why would you be going for adverse possession if that 5 to 12 inches is in your ...
