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 ...

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

Things so often seem to happen whilst people are away.

Well I guess the first thing is to keep a darn good eye on when she's away and restore the status quo.

How much do you estimate she owes you for the damage she has done to your property?

Re: Neighbour's debris

The debris that lands in my garden can be anything from stones, lumps of earth, thick woody stems, thistle heads and the like. Hi Brober, Almost a pity that there is no Japanese Knotweed included in that list. John W Is this post REALLY saying what I think it is? Whew....and I thought I'd seen some...

Re: Solving a Boundary Dispute

Could you not carve more land up into a building plot complete with disputed bit and sell to a hard nosed developer They will soon play hard ball with the neighbour and win by sheer force of JCB :lol: :lol: and I must admit that I like the sound of that idea better than just deliberately poisoning ...

Re: Neighbour wants to establish a (possibly) moved boundary

I'd agree.

That being you could say just one word to the neighbour, ie Estoppel.

Followed by ignoring them.

Re: Trespassing

I fully understand that you don't want problems for your own visitors coming to your place. I feel the same way - but, in the end, just telling the neighbours in a variety of ways that "It's my garden. Keep out" just didnt work and they kept right on trespassing and it was pretty much on a daily bas...

Re: Trespassing

Out of interest - what obstacle did you have to put there to stop your neighbours trespassing?

Re: Trespassing

I wouldnt agree that there are degrees and degrees of trespass. Trespass is trespass end of. Whether it be "holding a barbecue in a garden" that doesnt belong to them or trespassing by a few feet when reversing the car. Either way it's trespass. Even trespass of a few inches is trespass and it simpl...

Re: Trespassing

If he is trespassing like that on a pretty much daily basis - then I wonder if what he is up to is trying to gain "prescriptive rights" to drive on your land whenever he wants. In your position then I think you really should put up a physical obstacle that will stop him and so I'm back to suggesting...

Re: Preventing Adverse Possession

Have you just taken his word for it that he has written to her? Or have you asked for proof (ie copy of his letter to her and copy of her reply back).

I wouldnt believe he has done this unless I saw this proof.

Re: Trespassing

Is the entrance to your property narrow enough that it would be feasible to put a chaingate "fence" across it? That being put up a post each side of the entrance and put a chain across it that has to be unclipped any time a vehicle needs (or, in his case, wants) to get through. If need be then put a...

Re: Gate through to private road

I would have thought only the owner of the lane could actually do anything concrete to stop you using the lane. If there is indeed no known owner - then all these other people could do is conduct a "battle of wills" with you and try and tell you you aren't allowed to use it. But it would just be "so...
