they agreed to the survey and did not dispute it but have now come up with a sob story after talking to a friend who is a legal executive claiming boundary should traditionally be somewhere else and has been(there is nothing to mark the boundary
except pegs from my surveyor who used gps technology to show boundary within 6mm of where it should be
its not about money but a long strip of land running 1m form where it should between the 2 properties . neighbour hasn't carried out a survey(doesn't want to spend a penny and knows my survey is correct). He claims the boundary should be 1 m from where the survey shows it is
Ok, you need to decide whether it is worth going to Court over that strip. There will be legal costs of around £10,000 to take it to Court, if you lose then you would be liable for yours and the other sides costs.
If you want to then you need to issue a claim in Court. You would need to complete form N1
The Court will list the matter for hearing and you can use the surveyors report
The court will then decide who is right and where the boundary is.
Then you and the neighbour have to comply with the Court order
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
can i do this myself and use solicitor or barrister in the end when it proceeds to the court as I am used to cc claims as a claimant , this will reduce my costs
and can I put up a fence anyway as I have a survey and they dont
what if they come and try to obstruct the land workers from carrying this out once i have paid them for this, the length of the fence would be attest 100m as it is a long area
can i use MCOL to issue this claim and should it be local court or northampton ccbc
