Customer Question

Hello , We are going to replace the left hand side, which is our side and the end of the garden with new fencing, our neighbour has put new fencing at the end of his garden and 1 panel down the left hand side as well, he's told us he does not like our fence and has said he will continue with his fence the rest of the way down leaving a small gap between the two fences , which will cause all sorts of problems such as dampness, weeds , leaves and leave us unable to maintain it. Please could you advise us on how we stand legally.

He wants to put his fence in his garden after we told him about the fence we were intending to put in our garden leaving about a 2inch gap .
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
it's bad news then, there is nothing whatsoever you can do.The neighbour is entitled to put a fence up on his land if he wishes, there is nothing you can do.I realise the difficulties this can cause but you can't stop the neighbour putting a fence up in their own land, after all it is their land.I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?Alex
