Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practicing lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
May I ask if you have obtained a copy or have a copy of your title plan showing the red boundary line? If so does it accord with the location of the present boundary wall please?
May I clarify that he is proposing to demolish your wall without your permission?
no title plan yes he wants to demolish without my permission
Thank you. There are two issues here - the location of your boundary line and the question of damage to your wall.
If he damages your wall without your permission he will be guilty of criminal damage and you can advise him that if he damages your wall that you will call the police. He cannot damage your property without your permission without a court order as this is a criminal offence. You may wish to give him written notice to this effect and advise the police of his intentions so they are aware of the issue
In terms of the location of the boundary line, this is more involved but as the wall is already in place it is for your neighbour to take steps rather than you if he is not content with the location of the boundary line.
There is a fee of £90.
If your neighbour agrees to this proposal you can share the cost of a surveyor. If he refuses then this amounts to a boundary dispute which can be determined by the Land Registry Adjudicator. If the boundary is determined in the above manner then your title deeds will be updated with precise measurements which are legally binding going forward and a fence can then be erected along that line.
