He moved in about a year ago,
Am I going to get an answer today?
Sorry I have been in Court.
But I am now here to help you.
No, you don't have to cut the height down.
This is because it is his own fault that he does not have light - he enlarged his window.
If he had left it the same and then complained that would be different.
In any event to claim a right to light he has to show he has been there 20 years and obtained that right.
But he did not and does not.
Therefore no - you do not have to reduce them down
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
There is no such Act in England and Wales.
Does that help?
I don't mean to question you but I have just been reading the Trees and High Hedges Act 2005, which of course is not quite the same as I had previously suggested, this is the act he is pursuing.
No such Act in England and Wales.
I have looked on Lexis (Legal Practice website for cases/law) and Legislation.gov.uk
It may have been repealed.
It would appear to me that you are not too sure about this, and I probably know as much as you now, so I can see no point in continuing. Thank you.
I'm of the opinion that this matter is probably not your field of expertise.
You have rated poor service.
I have said that no such Act exists within England and Wales.
It is not on the legal resource websites that we, as lawyers, pay a considerable subscription fee for up to date law.
It is also not on www.legislation.gov.uk
As I have said it exists in Scotland but not England and Wales
Does that clarify?
