This answer was rated:

We have put a reservation down on a new build home. For some reason our garden cuts in at an angle leaving waste land between the fence and the ditch. I dont want it to over grow so want to ask the builders if they could square of the garden so that we have a slightly bigger garden meaning no overgrown bushes the other side. They are putting the fence up next week. Can they move it if we ask and would there be any paperwork involved as they own the land?

Ours is the fence where the orange arrow is but we want it to be more square like the neighbours (arrow) the builders are saying that they own the land but cant make it square due to planning. I though they could change it and just change the title deeds?

Hi, thank you for your message. In some cases if you let them know in advance this can be changed. I would recommend that you write them a formal letter setting out what you want from them. If possible they may make the changes but are not obliged to.
