Re: Orangery

What does the agreement say? For what you want, the extra cost may be two thirds of nothing.

Re: Surveyors obligations

Who instructed the surveyor? Did you? If so, chase them for the report and complain to RICS is it is not provided. If you did not instruct, then there is little you can do except chase the person who did to see if they will accelerate it for you.

Re: When is a tree not a tree?

If they are your trees, planted on your land and there is no Tree Protection Order on the trees (unlikely for a Leylandii hedge) then you are free to remove the trees without any permission required. Is this correct? I thought trees in conservation areas did not need TPOs as they were protected any...

Re: roots (probably again!!)

Ask for his statement in writing and also to write that he does not mind you moving the fence 8" into his land and get him to agree the positions of the posts. See if he still agrees. :D

Re: Party Wall Act - Challenging situation

I have read the other thread and for the life of me I cannot see any reason why they cannot build. A party wall surveyor etc is needed as has been described.

What evidence has been presented to support the contention that the fence is in the wrong place. Unless they have made a proper case then ignore them.

Re: overhanging branches

From reading stuff put on here by experts like Treeman...he might scold me for calling him expert...but he is! You are within your rights to cut back and place the off cuts of the tree on the owners land, in a responsible matter. Sadly, whilst he is definitely an expert he is not on this matter and...

Re: Modernising right of way.

As I understand it you are entitled to improve the surface to the point where you can exercise the rights you have but not more. If you are able to drive across the RoW then that is sufficient. If it were a muddy field then you could lay stone to create a track. Modernising a serviceable track to a ...

Re: Ivy on neighbours house

Talk to the neighbour.

Removal of ivy is easy. The difficulty is that it can leave residues on the wall that take a very very long time to fade.

Re: Guttering Problem....Neighbour issues

Has NFH admitted to removing the replacement guttering? If so,it would be difficult to argue for replacement with the original providing that the replacement was appropriate and suitable.

Re: Objecting a provisional TPO

I tend to agree with ukmicky. The owner is entitled to allow whatever work they wish in the absence of a TPO and a sense of unfairness in the decision making may be justified. The only practical impact of a TPO is that the owners of the six gardens where the trees overhang would not be able to cut b...
