Covenants

Post by duggat » Mon Jun 18, 2012 11:59 pm

Could anyone tell me?
Your covenant states that all shared fencing to be repaired or replaced.
Your neighbour removes old shared fencing. 6 foot only remains because he cant get to it.
They then state that your hedge is the boundary and is enough to be ' a secure and pleasing aspect of the gardens'. Cheek!
They also demand that you cannot do anything to your hedge without their approval.
Question is; can we demand that fencing be replaced to secure the gardens?
This would stop their nonsense over our hedge.
By the way, the remains of old fence go to their side of our hedge.

Remove your hedge just to spite them.

Have they left any boundary markers?

By removing the fence they may be changing the boundary as it would normally be the middle of a hedge, so get some markers in PDQ.

Who can enforce the covenant? I doubt you can.

If you want a fence put one in yourself.

Lol at arborlad...

A simple fence would suffice, no need to make it multicolour.

He is just being tight.

Put the cheapest boundry marker you can up before he starts to plant or build up to 'HIS' new boundry.

Even if it is a couple of fence posts and wire up for now. Get it up and quickly.
My answers are not of a legal nature, only what I consider to be common sense.
