boundary to field

Post by arnold25 » Mon May 28, 2018 7:26 pm

We bought an ex-housing association bungalow 3 years ago backing onto fields, we are now buying the other half of the two semi-detached. In the original deeds it gives two measurements of the size of garden. It states that the southern boundary which is the one to the side of the property we are buying and alongside a public foot path and field, is 130 feet long from the road. It only measures 118. It also states that the two properties together are quarter of an acre. This is also clearly not the case. It also shows a plan where the line of the end of the gardens is straight to our neighbour's outbuilding. It is now in a curve. What chance have we of rectifying this?

The black area is the two properties together.

The land was sold to a local council in 1931, the two council bungalows were then built and owned by the council and now a housing association. The previous postings about the triangle of land I am now wondering if that was included in the garden instead of the part of the end of garden that is missing but nothing made official. At the end of the day the deeds state not only on the plan but in writing that the measurement is 130 feet from the road and that the total area is 1/4 of an acre. We came off the triangle in the end as we got sick of the intimidation and gave up the fight, even though on old maps of the village dating back to 1946, it clearly showed it as part of our garden. After we came off, the local landowner in his wisdom, sold it to our neighbours who then promptly put their house up for sale (including the triangle) and have now gone. Our new neighbour is lovely. It is because of the 2 1/2 years of hell we put up with that we are buying the other half of our house. The tenant who was in it was also a lovely man, but we couldn't risk going through what went before again.

So the fence has been there for 87 years? Sorry, but you're stuck with it.

There is no fence, and where the boundary line should be is not farmed. They leave an area for wildlife.

What marks the boundary? You have stated clearly in your first post that there is a boundary feature.

Just the end of our gardens, but no hard boundaries. The southern boundary is to the side on the left, that has a public footpath bordering it. There is a ditch at the end of the gardens but this was only dug in the last few years after they ploughed two consecutive fields up to the church the same way which deluged the properties at the bottom after heavy rain.
