Why not offer to go 50:50 on a new lock if you really want one?

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

What about building a website detailing this properties location and timelines of all his actions. Including being aggressive and making threatening actions. You could take a bunch of pictures of what has happened so far and how it is damaging the area. A facebook group too would be a way of reachin...

Re: New member and this must be a first for this forum

Congrats to you and really pleased your neighbour has seen sense and taken down that fence. Also appreciate that you have updated the forum too. I can see your point about wanting the signed letter from your neighbour to clarify your position but the only "physical" evidence that any dispute has exi...

Re: Development of a studio built in a garden

I've mentioned this before but surely going to the papers to get publicity around this should be a way to focus people minds? Is there a reason why you have not tried this? There are many examples in the press when an egregious developer has had his actions highlighted publicly it forces local gover...

Re: New member and this must be a first for this forum

This is great news for you! :)
Personally getting something in writing RE you ROW will be critical as you will always in the back of your mind know it can come back.
Now that they seem to be capitulating I would push for it.

Re: Neighbour granted permission to build on our ROW

@SwitchRich regarding valuations - his house is currently worth £400,000 and he estimates it to be worth in excess of £500,000 once the work is completed. The increase is considerably more than 3%. Based on this, would the calculations you proposed vary by the same amount? Hi Butterfliesandbees, Th...

Re: House Extension in Private Road

Gotta love this forum and the good advice you get. It might also be worth taking pictures of the road now before the work has started so that you can show the state it was in. And I like the comment offering a gift of monies should there be any damage caused by the work. Perhaps acknowledging this i...

Re: Elderly neighbor has tripped on a path i own but they have a row- terraced housing

Hi Matt, Thanks for the update and it must have been a worrying outcome for you considering you could have been liable for this! However I don't think you will be able to send the cost of the works to your neighbour and try to force them to pay. As I understand your position they have a ROW over you...
