Yes but the exact boundary is not clearly seen on the 1:1250 plans that I have seen and any title deeds that I have seen with drawings show the land as mine but there are no exact measurements
Is your land registered at the land registry?
Who uses this land, you or the neighbour?
We need full background please.
My land is registered at the land registry
My neighbour has fenced off the land so I cannot access it to use it
He uses it to store old building materials and rubbish
The area that is fenced off is approximately 35 inches away from my house so that to open the original front door - which opens outward, would almost touch the fence. I have tried to attach a picture but your server will not allow
So, out of theblue, he has taken it upon himself to suddenly fence this land which is on yrdeeds as yrs and is regd at the Land Registry to you and apply to have thetitle changed into his name? That seems most odd.
If he uses it tostore things, how long has he done that for? If he uses it why doi you want toaccess it?
"original" frontdoor. Please explain.
I need finedetails please.
When I purchased the property 11 years ago the house had been vacant for some time. It had to be during this period that my neighbour fenced off the property. I have not been able to gain access to the land because he has fenced it off. The land is immediately outside the old front door to the property which accesses the living room. My neighbour has not taken the land with consent, but if I remove the fence I could be charged with damage and I have asked him to remove it but he has refused. The land registry documents do not go down as far as feet and therefore I am trying to dispute the boundary and need guidance how best to do that.
So the neighbourhas fenced the land off and been using it for 11 years? During that time, hehas had exclusive possession?
I'm afraid totell you that in which case, he is entitled to have the land registered as hisown under the doctrine of Adverse Possession.
He has occupiedit without consent and it appears without objection and not in secret for over10 years.
If however youhave proof that you have objected to this over the last 10 years, you canoppose his application for registration. Once the registration application isreceived by the land Registry, they will write to you in any event.
If you havesimply let sleeping dogs lie during the course of the last 10/11 years, thatreally does thwart your defence to his application.
I appreciate thatthis is not the answer you wanted but there is no point in me misleading you
Does that answerthe question?
Can I assist anyfurther with this? Please bear with me today and this weekend because I will beonline and off-line.
