His land is approximately 2 ft higher than ours, so his fence panels stick up 2 ft higher than our fencing. Does this effect our right to light?
He is now threatening to erect an even higher fence of 8 ft after asking him to remove the screws from the fence.
Thank you very much
You are legally entitled to remove his fence from yours forthwith
Just be careful not to damage it
If he has damaged your fence then sue him in the Small claims court
He can erect a fence at the rear of properties up to 2 metres high from his own land level
Forward of his house he is only allowed 1 metre high fence without planning permission or permission from the LA
Right to light for sunlight to your garden? Sorry but there is no direct entitlement to this. You may care to check out the link below it has some good information regarding Right to Light.Do we have any right for the fence to be less than the legal 2m in this case, to allow sunlight into our garden?

Girl power, how about a small cheap angle grinder, does what it says on the tin, using goggles and protective gloves, angle the blade as close to the screw shaft as it exits the post, voila jobs a good un You could of course purchase one of those hobby rota zip tools, they dont have as much power and will take longer but have the same effect.
