Re Fencing issueI have carried out a survey to determine

Customer Question

Re Fencing and boundary dispute issue I have carried out a survey to determine my boundary. My Gardens back onto fields. The farmer has raised a boundary dispute in November 2014 and repeatedly come and threatened us at that time. Following police complaints his visits have stopped though he still drives at my boundary in a vehicle shooting rabbits at night. . I would like to fence my boundary with the field with a post and mesh fence immediately to stop trespassing at night over an area of approx 150metres long.The farmer doesn't want a fence and is not interested in carrying out his own survey as this would cost him money. Can I ask a solicitor to send him a letter giving him 2 weeks to carry out his own survey failing which I will put up a fence at my boundary. If he raises a dispute I wish to make an application to the court to determine our boundary(which I am confident will be where Promap,my  survey and title deeds show it to be). Are you able to suggest an online solicitor who can draft this letter for me. I can forward a pro map copy and land registry record to them along with a drafted letter. This will ensure that the ball is in their court and they can't prolong unresolved boundary dispute for ever.

Hello, I am a solicitor with 20 years experience. I will try to answer this for you.
There is no reason why you can't do this. I would not erect the fence though until the issue has been adjudicated on/agreed.
I don't think that we are allowed to recommend specific solicitors on this site.
Perhaps your surveyor could recommend someone, or do the letter himself on his letterhead.

Thank you for your reply

Is there any reason why I should not erect a fence at my boundary as determined by me survey.

The farmer has done nothing in the past year to resolve this, except raise a dispute verbally and am worried he might do nothing . (I need the fence keep my small children safe and would like to have a family dog and keep it within our grounds ).

Can I send the letter myself through special delivery, without being accused of anything .

Expert:  LondonlawyerJ replied 1 year ago.
You can put the fence up, there is no law against it, but there would be a risk that if it is on disputed land that the farmer might take unilateral action and you would have wasted money putting it up.
Yes, you can send a letter yourself.
