    If you're jointly responsible for a knackered fence then you should pay half regardless of the hedge.

    We have the deeds and, as above, 'we are jointly responsible'.

    You pay £3 to the Land Registry to find out which boundary belongs to which property if you don't know.

    Fence replacement

    The house we let is one half of a pair of semi-detached houses.

    The boundary between the two gardens is a fence, for which we are jointly responsible, but which has been 'consumed' by a hedge on the adjoining property.

    The owners of the adjoining property wish to remove their hedge, which will result in what is left of the joint fence falling down, and erect a new fence. They have invited us to fund half of the cost of the fence.

    Do we have to pay up? If they didn't want to remove the hedge then there wouldn't be the need to erect a fence...

    Whenever we've needed to, we've spent money on the property to keep it in good repair but really don't want to incur expenditure when it's not really necessary.

    The plans provided with the planning application will show the position and size of the house granted planning permission, as well as showing the extent of the land identified on the site plan.

    The planning permission would have taken into account the area available for garden, and parking...

    I am wondering if anyone can answer my question please?

    There is a plot for sale in my area that has planning permission granted on it. The thing is, this was granted when the site was larger than it now is as the vendor has fenced a section of it off and built himself a log cabin style...

    Hi Tipper. It was granted for one dwelling but vendor has since built the cabin and fenced off the plot he is selling saying it has planning. But the planning was granted for the original whole site before he built his cabin that he lives in .

    It probably depends on what the permission was for and how many dwellings, etc.
    Also when pp was achieved as they run out after 3 years in most if not all cases.

    You can check on the local planning online to see the details, drawings, dates, etc.

    Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but what are the circumstances to obtain a Buildings Regulations Certificate? For example building a house, an extension, fitting a new boiler, installing a new light fitting, replacing a light bulb etc?

    No not too late. We had the same situation for our three holiday lets.

    We pressed the installer to register the new boilers with Gas Safe who in turn send certification to the local Building Regs which is what they are supposed to do upon installation, assuming they are qualified and 'Gas...

    Thanks for the advice all. I've had 2 boilers replaced by different installers over the last 6 years, but not received a Building Regulations Certificate from either one. I didn't ask the installers about it at the time as I was unaware of the need. Although they did provide Gas Safe Reports as requested,...

    Hi There,

    I live in a share of freehold ground floor flat (1 of 4 flats, 2 ground floor, 2 first) within a converted Victorian house and am looking to do a 3.5m extension into the garden. The garden is shared between the 2 ground floor flats and split down the middle by a fence. Each ground...

    This transaction only needs one document, a lease. A skeleton of the clauses needed:

    ·A demise of the additional land
    ·A statement that the terms of the lease are (mutatis mutandis) the same as the OP's lease except as expressly provided in the next clause
    ·Set out...

    Thank you for all your responses, good to know this is on the high side and we should be able to save some money. Do you have any advice on indicative costs (appreciate this might be a 'how long is a piece of string' kind of question). I've already messaged a few other solicitors.
