Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Have you pointed this out to your neighbour and if so what do they say please?
That may be the case but that does not mean it can remain.
What you should do is the following:
1) Write to the owners and enclose a copy of the plan. State that the shed is in your property and you wish it removed within 28 days
2) If they refuse then see a Solicitor and ask them to write to the owners, doing the same thing. But in this case state you will go to Court within a further 28 days if they do not move it
3) If they refuse then you will need to issue proceedings for possession and enroachment
You will need a Solicitor to do this for you
The Solicitor can issue proceedings and represent you in Court.
What will happen is either
a) They will dispute the boundary line in which case the Judge will need to declare where it is, or
b) The Judge will see the boundary is yours and Order that the shed is removed
Any fees you pay, if you win, can be sought from the other side
But these are the steps you need to follow
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
