  1. I'm looking for clarification on the law regarding Signs on a private fence. I recently nailed a proprietary "Private Land Keep Out" sign to a private garden fence after neighbours were filmed trespassing. The said neighbours quickly removed the sign and kept it, despite a letter asking for its return. When the police eventually confronted the neighbour three days later she admitted taking the sign off the fence (which involved prising it off with an edged tool) and returned it. The police have said no offence has been committed by her removing the sign "because she did not
  2. Dear all. My tenant are asking me to repair the rear fence. However, because of the different configuration of the garden behind us, our rear fence is actually the neighbour’s left hand fence. If this is the case, then are we still definitely responsible for this fence? The deeds do not say whose fence it is! Does anybody have any ideas please?
  3. Hi all, I'm not entirely sure on the rules regarding erecting of fences on boundary walls, so was hoping someone could clarify for me. Basically our bungalow is very close to the house next door, their kitchen window/door looks right into our kitchen There's no privacy outside, except for a 3-4ft tall concrete/brick wall. Can I have a tallish fence erected/attached to the brick wall, to give us some privacy? This is the view from our kitchen door: [ATTACH=CONFIG]57799[/ATTACH] This is the satellite map showing how the houses look from above. The red line be
  4. Never thought I'd be writing asking for advice on fences! My neighbour (who refuses to talk to me) erected a heavy 6ft high wooden panel fence by screwing the large heavy panels to my dainty picket fence and its 3ft posts in the summer. All without my permission, I just came home one day and it was there. I was worried it would all get ripped down in heavy winds, as my fence posts weren't designed for large solid panels, and in yesterdays storms I was proved right. One of my posts has been snapped in half and so has the frame of one section. I'm looking for advice on a short let
  5. During recent weather, the fence between us and a neighbour came down, and it looked like the base of the fence posts had rotted away a little. The posts were on their side. They tore down the entire fence, not just the damaged section, and replaced, putting fence posts on our side. They're now asking us to contribute towards the costs they incurred. We did not consent to the work, nor to the style of fence. Are we obliged to contribute? Morally, should we? We have no relationship with next door. With the fence posts now on our side, does this then give us responsibility fo
  6. Really need some advice about a letter i have received from local council regarding the recent extension of my boundary fence. The problem has stemmed from me having a nosey neighbour who has issues with everything and everyone, so much so that i stopped talking to him a few years ago. He built his shed on a platform which enabled him to stand in the doorway of it and look directly into our house. He has used the chance to do this constantly. I have had no privacy and had become increasely distressed by this. He makes unlimited pointless trips to the shed whenever i am outside to watch wha

  8. Hi everyone, The fence at one side of the property (council) that I live in was damaged by the gales in April.After twenty or so e-mails from the council and numerous calls from me I was informed that the fence which is on the right,as you stand with your back to the house, is the responsibility of my neighbours.Could anyone confirm this for me.
  9. Hi folks, I'm a newbie to this forum, and I thought it would be a good place to get some solid advice. I'm a student who has just moved in to their first rental, and as such I'm a bit clueless as to what rights I do and do not have. Anyhoo, I let from a letting agency with five other students (which I believe is aimed primarily at a student market). Knowing the house would likely be inhabited by students, the landlord seems to have fenced off a large portion of our garden, as well as that of two adjoining properties, leaving us with a mere postage stamp, probably so he does not have
