Boundary Structures between Properties in General
Just thought i'd try a general discussion about various boundary structures, boundaries in general and the problems they cause.
What are your experiences?
Been looking at buying a new property this last 18 months and not found my rightmove yet but in this process i've seen some problematic boundaries and yes they have put me off buying a couple of properties.
Have you experienced a moving boundary...... two properties share an old fence that's not good..... One side decides to plant a hedge up against the fence or just put up a new fence against the old. The oposite side removes old falling down fence.
Wheres the boundary now?????????? The position of the new fence or the centre line of the new hedge? Neither but in the event of a dispute prove it one way or the other! This is especially difficult after several decades or a succession of new neighbours etc.
A friend bought a new bungalow that had a hedge as a boundary with a neighbour. It was a good age and size, neglected and in need of some tlc. On asking who owned the hedge and who was resonsible for its upkeep etc the nieghbour said that it was my friends hedge. Great lets get stuck in and give it a good hard prune back etc and feed it to get it rejuvenated etc. Two years later the hedge now belongs to the nieghbour!!!!!!!!!!!! It's not my friends hedge anymore!!!!
Please do share your own experiences.....
