Hi no ditch
The hedge is between my house and the one next door, four metres high, on a bank overshadowing the house etc
The hedge is also around two metres wide
Hi there was originally an old fence (oak posts and chestnut rails) which is referred to in the charges register (1975) later on, the charges register just refers to a hedge which i assume it was agreed had taken the place of the old fence. There is some evidence of a fence of that type running through the hedge now
sorry the hedge is referred to in an updated charges register entry 1993
Through the middle really
I couldnt be sure it represents that 1975 boundary
Evergreen? yes but we dont think its a leylandii
Should we take advice before cutting branches back to the stumps, it could kill the hedge? One other quick question, can you think of any circumstances under which a 4m high hedge taking light from our lounge which is one metre below the land of the hedge would be allowed?
Ahh, My kids are going to bed too....thanks Matt. I really appreciate your help.
ok, can you think of any circumstances under which a 4m high hedge taking light from our lounge which is one metre below the land of the hedge would be allowed?
so effectively its a five metre hedge on our side. By the way, from your earlier answer the hedge is definitely the property of the people on the adjoining property. I am trying to gauge what my rights are to get it cut back and lowered
One very last question, if we agree to cut it back on our side to the boundary, should I do it, or should I ask him to?
Matt, I have very much enjoyed your help and advice this evening and of course I will leave positive advice. I hope your daughter is happily asleep by now. Do I get a copy of this transcript by email or should I cut and paste it somewhere else?
