Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Having "googled" it am I right in believing there is no right to light in Scotland? The terminology in the info I've read is difficult to comprehend i.e. negative servitudes and burdened properties to a layperson. Also my house is ex housing association (I've bought) whilst my neighbour's still belongs to a housing association (Waverly Housing). Does this mean the housing association would need to go to the sheriff court re: interdict? Or would my neighbour as a tenant be entitled to do this?
Thanks for your help in this. I want to be as informed as possible when this subject is raised with him again.
One last question:
'in aemulationem vicini' I take to mean that this would be me deliberately abusing my right to build an extension under current planning regulations to the detriment of my neighbour?
Can you elborate on "could be remedy either way". Does this mean either of us could win if this went to court - dependent obviously on the decision of the Sheriff.
