Hello Joshua, I put the fence up about 6 years ago, it's on my property and I'm sure I could provide proof if it was an issue, but I really don't think they would dispute that, as he said to me during our argument "you put the fence up and defined the boundry so that side of the fence is yours and this side is mine" I also live in Scotland as I see you are based in England
Thanking You Jo.
Hello and thank you for replying to me. In reply to your questions there was no boundry between the two properties, I live in a semi-detatched and we have communal stairs between the properties which we both used to reach our drying areas, about 6 years ago I erected a fence up to the drying area and built stairs in my garden to access the top of my garden as it is on different levels, but the fence is 100% in my garden, there is about 6inches [15cm] or so behind my fence at the bottom level that is the back of my property, and around 2feet [60cm] at the top level that was my garden, but the neighbour now uses these areas to store rubbish,bricks ,logs,garden chairs etc and stacks them against my fence,he says that side of the fence is his and he can do what he likes,he is now about to lay some slabs and has piled about 12inches of soil/dirt against my fence to lay the slabs, this soil if wet will rot the fence,I have nothing against my fence at my side in order to preserve it. I do not have access to my Land Certificate as it will be with the Mortgage Co. I may be able to get a copy but I'm not sure if that is possible, but I could find out, I hope this helps, and thank you again, Jo McAulay
