The tree and other foliage had concealed the fact that when the property owner backing onto my property had replaced the fence last year he has encroached by at least a metre into my garden. The Land Registry title document shows the boundaries as running in a straight line between all the properties in the street but I can see there is a dog leg behind where the tree was and one in the other corner. ==****************== Symbols show the encroachment from their side. Please can someone advise me how best to tackle this issue?
First - speak to the neighbour, it's the surest way of finding out if you've got a belligerent land-grabbing neighbour or if there is some other explanation.
However the conversation goes, have someone on standby who is able to remove the fence from your land and stacked on the neighbours land.
