Rights Concerning The Removal of Neighbour's Damaged Fence.

Post by ROODOG » Thu Oct 11, 2018 9:21 am

What do you do if your neighbour's fence falls down in your garden?
Talking would be a good start. However if your neighbour wants no contact with you,
what is the procedure here? As I understand it, you are supposed to give all the
broken pieces back to your neighbour. Is this correct? I will appreciate any advice here.
Thank you.

Hi ROODOG,

if you find yourself in possession of something that you don’t own - e.g. found a wallet on the train - then the law expects you to make a reasonable effort of reuniting it with the owner.

given you know who owns the fence debris this should be relatively straightforward - let them know you have it and they can collect or, if they don’t/can’t then you’ll deliver.

kind regards, Mac

Delivery is best achieved by placing the debris on the neighbour's side of the boundary.

Just ensure that you take photographs of the damaged fence before you remove it.

Hello.
Thank you to the three people namely MacadamB53,Collaborate and Morgan Sweet.
Your replies were helpful and taken onboard! Permission for sure. As is the case here,
that the 'old' fence is still actually theirs! Putting anything in someone's bin outside their house
without permission also carries possible consequences I understand. Thank you all once again
for your time taken to comment. :P :P
