Hi I have a large drive and my deeds show that I own the driveway the house next door has access to their property via entrance in my drive way. I am now in process of replacing drive but my neighbour is stating he owns half the drive way his deeds show that where I am starting the new drive he has a blue sqaure in his property in the drive way his side and the other side shows amber in drive way which I believe this to be my access ?
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

Hi there
Unfortunately I am unable to obtain a copy of them for you.
Do you have them to hand and able to take a photograph?
Customer: replied 3 days ago.
I have them here but do not know how to send a photo so I have wasted my money

If you can take a photo on your phone or tablet and click the small paperclip above the box where you type, you can upload them.

Otherwise, I can give you a general answer based on the information you have provided.

On your title plan, if the red line boundary is also around the driveway, this means that the driveway is included in your ownership and your neighbour has a right of way over it. It is quite unlikely that he would own half of the drive way but without seeing the documents I cannot explicitly confirm.

If you read his title deeds, it should somewhere explain what the blue and amber squares mean.

I hope this helps
