There is no easement described in the deeds, they don't have an easement granted by me .
During a recent mediation meeting regarding a boundary dispute their solicitor told the mediator that there electricity line was running through my front garden(gardens are large in a semirural location) and wondered if as part of settlement we would consider granting easement to them. They claimed that the previous owner verbally allowed them to have their electricity line run through the front garden! I was very surprised to hear this.
Their deed documents state they have no right to light or air over our property and that they should do nothing which could be of nuisance to us. Theirs is last property on a private road which has 3 houses and the last electricity pole is in my front gardens.. No written easement has been granted. I did not live at this property for past 2 years as it was undergoing refurbishment and I rarely visited the site, my impression is that at some stage in past 2 years they have allowed for the electricity line to be dug through my gardens instead of having an overhead line or an underground line running outside my boundary.
Neighbours electricity supply is underground through the middle of my front garden causing problems with me erecting a fence at the periphery or an outbuilding to the front.
They do not have an easement.
They have indicated that they want to have it overground (and hopefully outside my property). I have had the property for 2 years, moved in 8 months ago
Yes that is correct they couldn't dig and complete the fencing leaving my property exposed with large gaps in fencing.
I will give them 2 weeks notice Thank you
