Hi.

Thank you for your question. My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


I have lived in an old semi-detached house since 1988. Effectively my house sits in the middle of my neighbours garden whilst my garden is to the side.


 


A new neighbour moved in in 2012. There has been on-going disputes about my right of access. She has propped this rusty corrugated iron panel in front of my lounge window. Although it is on her land it is only 6 inches from my window.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
Thanks.

Does it block your light? If so, how much light does it block?

Does it prevent you opening your window?

Referring to your deeds, is the right to light excluded in your deeds?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


Thank you for your reply.


 


The panel blocks 90% of light into my lounge which means I have to have the light on permanently.


 


I can still open the window.


 


I do not know about my deeds which are with my solicitor.


 


I have been in contact with environmental health who are contacting me next week.

Are you able to check whether there is a right to exclude in your deeds?
