Re: Boundaries along a road and new water pipes?

I would think the Water Company is a statutory service provider so can lay pipes in the road. If anyone wants to lay water pipes themselves I think they would not have a right to do so.

Re: how best to deal with a ROW disupte Please :-)

Alternatively you could park in your garage. Is the entrance to it unobstructed?

Re: stables and planning

So if you build a garage but don't keep your car in it it can cease to be a garage, even though the council called it a garage? That's an interesting question Mr Pope, and it is not disrespectful to anyone. I think the answer all revolves around what planning permission you had. If you get permissi...

Re: Right of way - what can neighbours do?

So claiming that next door are obstructing the right of way won't get you very far. You do not have a right of way. They are only obstructing their own right of way. You should simply tell them to get off your land. If they say they have a right of way you then explain - "yes, you have a right of wa...

Re: how best to deal with a ROW disupte Please :-)

Contributors above seem to not understand what knock for knock is all about, regarding car insurance. I might be decades out of date but knock for knock does not always mean that both drivers lose their no claim bonus. That would occur if both drivers were held partly responsible. In this thread wha...

Re: Right of way - what can neighbours do?

Often the situation is that they have row over a bit of your land and you have row over a bit of theirs. Can you get through without going on any of their land?

Re: Right of way - what can neighbours do?

You say the neighbours are obstructing a right of way, but I guess it is only their own right of way that they are obstructing, so you might have little success trying to enforce that. But if I am understanding this correctly they are parking on land that you own. They have no right to park on your ...

NP Sir ,But it still needs signing off.
I built my large garage with planning permission 30 years ago. It has never been 'signed off'.

Re: Building a higher fence on my side of the boundary

Some of us like to be able to spend time in our own gardens without being on view to the neighbours the whole time and so we like our 2m fences. When my neighbours sit in their garden I can do anything I want in my garden and they cannot see us over the 5 foot fence. Sometimes we choose to both sta...

Re: Building a higher fence on my side of the boundary

Some of us don't understand why anyone wants high fences. A 6ft fence keeps out a lot of light and gives the burglars something to hide behind.

Re: Shared fence - premature replacement

Bill, doing anything to a shared fence has to be done by agreement, so you cannot force him into co-operating with a new fence. The two of you need to agree what to do next. I don't think you can blame the shop proprietor for other people's bad driving. And you cannot blame the council. The council ...

Re: Boundary in place for 20 years, can it be moved?

It would be very difficult for your neighbour to force you to move the fence. On the other hand, if he moved the fence while you were away on holiday it would be very difficult for you to force him to move the fence back.

Re: OT, but everybody should read this, claiming benfits or

All very interesting, but not a credible argument when it seems to be saying that everyone on less than £60k per year is entitled to some benefit. Or did I read that bit wrongly? Our household income with two salaries added together has never reached £60k.
