Hello, my neighbour refuses to maintain the fence on his side so I have decided to put up my own fence. The workmen think his fence is actually on my land, but what is there has been up for over 20 years. It is under 4 feet high, my deeds state a fence should be erected at least 5 feet high and no more than 6 feet. Also his she lip overhangs into my garden and is hard against my shed causing water to gather and damage my shed. Half his shed was there when I moved in 23 years ago. The added on part was erected under 10 years ago. My new fence is going up and his shed lip is in the way. Am I within my rights to remove his overhanging lip?Many thanksMaria
Optional Information: Province/Country relating to question : United KingdomAlready Tried: I've spoken to him and he insists that his shed is on his land. But the booundary line from my house shows that he is trespassing
Detail Required: HIGH; Urgency: HIGH
Are you referring to the shed lip? Removing it would not damage the shed, but it would remove the felt covering on that side...
Yes that is what I meant by the lip - the top/roof/apex of his shed overlaps the border.
yes, that's what I meant by the lip. The overlap/apex trespasses over the boundary line. One half of the shed has been there for over 20 years the other half was added on 6 years ago. So the half where I am erecting a fence overlaps and interferes with the boundary line.
