The surveyor will be jointly instructed so it can be made clear that the purpose is to seek to determine the boundary by reference to all evidence. Both sides provide what they have.
Sometimes both parties agree beforehand to abide by the outcome and make a formal agreement based upon the jointly instructed report......sometimes proposing this puts the other side off especially if their evidence is a bit contrived.....if they object it weakens their position, so if you are happy to accept an independent determination, then put the proposal in writing so that your offer can be brought up later if they refuse.

Excellent way fwd suggested by Mrsheen

Be sure that the boundary expert is truly independant and not a contact or mate of the current questionable one

Hi, This is still rumbling on, neighbour has instructed a different surveyor now as his first surveyor stated that the original conveyance would take precedent, in this second report the surveyor has not had access to any of the conveyance documents that we sent to his solicitor so it is very limited/biased, again he wants a meeting to negotiate a settlement.

I have found an email that was sent to me by my neighbour saying that he would move part for the fence back , and apologising that it was not built on the boundary. Is there anyway one of you can take a look at this email in private without pasting in it full? I believe he is accepting liability in this email and it could mean we could just go straight to court. Is there any damage in pasting it in full?

Thanks for all the advice.

Your first step is to advise his solicitors that you will only accept an independent jointly appointed surveyor to report on the boundary location. Do not make any other statements in this letter, keep it short and sweet.

The email and any evidence you have re the change of surveyor and the reasons for this should also be placed in the hands of any surveyor. You could send a separate letter to his sols stating that you have information and outline very briefly its contents but do not send any copies just yet. They will ask if they want it.
