Are there any yellow lines please?

JACUSTOMER-2eaupgu1- :

No there are no yellow lines

We have approached these people previously but met with a flat refusal to our plight. You mention the deeds. We have only lived here over two years so I will contact the company that did the conveyancing and see what they bring to light. Will it help to send a photo to you, and if so how?
