Hi,Thanks for your enquiry.Could you please give me a little more info- what easement are you wishing to claim? If it is a right of way for example, how long have you used it?I look forward to hearing from you.Al

I have a property that was next to agricultural land. I have owned it for 34 years and have used the land adjacent to carry out routine jobs on the house and boundry fence such as hedge clipping, roof repairs etc all without challenge or express permission throughout that time. Last year a house was built next to my house and recently we required to put a ladder on the adjacent land to effect repairs to roor damage. We asked permission from the house owner who refused. I realise I could go to court under right of reasonable access but I think I have established an easment by prescription because of my use of the land over the past 34 years. If this is the case I want to register it so that I can continue to access this land to carry out repairs etc without the need to go to court each time my neighbour refuses me reasonable access.

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.Why do you need to register an easement at Court please?Alex
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thank you Alex. If you read my original letter I put my case. We have aquired new neighbours who have refused access to their land adjacent to my house to carry out repairs. I think this is their long term attitude and rather than have to apply to court each time acess isw required if I can establish and easement it will be permanent.

Ok - you need to seek a Court order Peter.You need to complete form N208:http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n208-eng.pdfThe court will list the matter for a hearing and decide whether to grant a 'declaration' that there is an easement. If the Court does then this potentially can be lodged as an official document at the Land Registry.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Dear Alex,
Thank you for your response. It would seem that my next move is to find a local barrister familiar with property law and also the local county court. Any ideas on how to do this?
Peter
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Thamk you
