My neighbour claims he has access to bottom of my land as he

This answer was rated:

My neighbour claims he has access to bottom of my land as he believes this is a continuation of the lane that gives access to all the back of our houses. His title plan clearly indicates that his access stops short of our gate as does mine. On both title plans it clearly indicates the access road itself stops at our gate. We also have evidence that a garage was on the piece of land he claims to have access built when all the houses were indicating it would of been impossible to access anyway. There is no history of previous owners granting him access. He couldn’t never of accessed it anyway as it was completely overgrown with tress etc until we cleared it all to prepare for outbuilding where old garage used to be. Does he have any legitimate claim when all evidence suggests he doesn’t ?

Let me see if I can help and please rate 5 stars. From what you have written he appears to have no claim whatsoever. The key is evidence and he has none. If he persists then I would be minded to send a solicitors letter (your home insurance may cover this) to him and formally explain his position to him. Happy to discuss and please rate 5 stars
