Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Why do you want to access it please?

JACUSTOMER-osmxs9mn- :

we wish to replace the fencing as it is rotten. The neighbours have put another fence close up to our existing fence and has made it difficult for us to move around the area.

Alex Watts :

Yes they do.

Alex Watts :

There is a requirement under the Access to Neighbouring Land Act to permit you access to repair.

Alex Watts :

If they do not then you can seek a Court order.

Alex Watts :

So yes, they should give you reasonable access

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
