Of course, I moved into a premises that back onto a golf course - a stream between my property and the golf course is the boundary as we saw on our deeds however a bridge was erected and a fence on the Golf course side by the previous owners and has been in place for the last 16 years. We have just had a letter from a Surveyor saying that we have encroached on his clients land ( golf course owners) and they have suggested to take down the fence and the bridge or alternatively get in touch to come to an arrangement - I have had erected on this enclosed land a decking and I was seeking legal advice as I am under the understanding that if it has been enclosed for such a long time that there could be a legal right to ownership. - Lawrence
Are you still dealing with my question Clare?
around 5 meters by 12 meters. It has been maintained by the previous owners and fence for some 16 years and my thoughts were that under the Adverse Possession Law that although they did not approach or apply for the land the owners have never had any interaction with the land , as in maintaining it , in all that period so I may have some right in contesting the Surveyors letter by stating the Law?
Thanks fior the reply, would I apply to the land registry office?
Thanks for the advice
