Is there any reason why you cannot ask them about it? Coggy

There's a long list of issues (regarding the boundary between us and several years of other complaints) we requested a mediation meeting on the advice of a police officer who came out after some damage had been caused by them installing a new fence next to ours. She advised to not make any contact so we didn't cause conflict ourselves. Next door refused mediation so we're now kinda stuck ! All I feel we can really do is educate ourselves to make sure we know our rights.

Do you have cctv? It is very helpful when dealing with difficult neighbours. Not only will it record what they are up to, the fact of it being in evidence puts a damper on many of their activities. This is the voice of experience. Coggy

There is no mention of this in your other thread, without a means of communicating with your neighbour you're going to struggle to get any sort of resolution. Who is doing the work, your neighbour or a contractor?

Unless there is something to refute it, this is the strongest evidence of where your wall ends and your neighbour's starts. Uness there is good reason for it, it seems a very poor decision to remove a wall that is sound and replace it with a fence.

Do the bricks match your house?

The refusal of mediation has only happened in the past week, she appears to be doing the work removing the wall themselves but so far all that been done is slicing into the wall with an angle grinder. The wall around the edge of their garden has been neglected for years so it needs repair or removal so it's not unreasonable or anything.
The fence disputed in the other thread attaches to the wall underneath the wall toppers which continue around only our garden, it's clear to me but next door obviously don't agree !

This is obviously incorrect and the more that is added to both threads, the more difficult and confusing it becomes for those trying to assist.

No offense but are you trying to assist ? Because you seem to be doing a lot of questioning of my posts which IS making it difficult yes.

Hi NickyBlake,

'arborlad' means well, he can just be a bit too OCD about folk having multiple threads on the go when one would suffice is all (and with good reason at heart - to help the forum).

Ignoring that, he's very helpful indeed - especially about walls & fences.

Kind regards, Mac
