Testing the boundaries – boundary disputes
Boundary disputes between neighbouring properties may be a problem that can quickly escalate. You may end up with full on “Nightmare Neighbour Next Door” scenarios if not dealt with correctly. Check out the TV series they have even made about it – http://www.channel5.com/show/the-nightmare-neighbour-next-door/
Often just a chat over the fence to try to sort things out can help when it comes to establishing the boundary. If that doesn’t work you may need to check your property deeds. Also it may be worth speaking to an advisor at the Land Registry or an experienced solicitor. However we can help when it comes to establishing the boundary with demarkation once this had been agreed.

We are happy to take instruction on where to place fixings. However we do stress that the property line should be agreed or legally checked first. There is a blog from the Land Registry published last year which helped to highlight the problems and provide assistance.
