Please can you advise about our neighbour he has attached a fence post to our garage wall ,without asking us ,has he any rights to do so without our permission
Hello. Was there such a post there previously, or is this entirely new?

It is a new post
Thanks. I would therefore seriously doubt that your neighbour has any right to do this. It sounds to me that he has made an assumption (wrongly) that he can do this. If it is indeed fixed to your wall, you can require him to remove it and to repair any damage caused (eg bolt holes). I suggest you tell him you're not happy and that you want the post removed and the holes repaired, to your satisfaction. If he refuses, you could seek a court order to have the post removed, as it is essentially a trespass and possibly also criminal damage. Best, WB
