Minimum width of path

Post by Maoiliosa » Sat Sep 07, 2019 9:59 am

Hello members. I have recently moved into a terraced house. On our deeds we have a right of way across our neighbour’s garden and along the side of his garage to the front and public path.

There are no plans attached to the Deeds. Is there a standard width of ROW path?

Post up the relevant verbiage from the deeds. Your row may be the entirety of the garden, or may be more restrictive.

The title deeds and plan relating to your neighbour's property may have more detail regarding the right of way. You can download a copy of each for £3 each (if the property is registered) from the Land Registry website. (There are websites out there that charge more. I advise you to use the .gov site).
When you get that done please post the wording here, remember to remove any details which might identify you, your neighbour, or where you are. As span asks, please also post the relevant words from your own title deeds .
Some other questions spring to mind.
How many in the terrace? Do other houses access the rear of their properties over the land of the same neighbour?
Were the houses all constucted at the same time? And approx when?
Were any garages a later addition?..when?
Did your house have a garage/stables to the rear requiring access across the neighbour's land? Is there evidence of old gateways or pathways crossing the rear of the properties along the terrace.
