We don't want to look at there washing hanging over our fench can we stop them from doing it
I am really sorry but I'm afraid it's bad news.There is nothing in law that prevents them hanging out washing. There is just no way around it.There are laws of nuisance and trespass but I'm afraid some washing that does not quite a high but is blown over by the winds would not be sufficient to get over the hurdle. You can always ask them to accommodate you but if they refuse then I'm afraid the law does not provide a remedy unfortunately.Can I clarify anything for you?Jo
Do you still need a call? I posted before I accepted that.
