Thank you for your speedy response. I must apologise for not making it clear that,indeed, it is a shared boundary, both to the rear and to the front of my cottage. My cottage is detached built in 1727 of stone and tiled roof having gardens to front and rear, and a driveway to the west gable. The fencing referred to runs along a line coincident -in line with- the eastern gable. The shape, form or size of the foundation to the cottage is unknown to me, but I assume that any line of fencing erected by my neighbour should allow for the position of the outer edge of any such foundation.
I can confirm that the boundary fence was a shared/party boundary on the boundary line, rather than on the neighbours' side of it.Thank you again for finding time for my problem.
Good morning, and thank you very much indeed for your legal advice re the fence. I my get myself a good nights sleep tonight ! I will certainly use your services again in the future should the need arise. pmd
