Areas of Law / Property

Our next door neighbours have taken down the plastic fencing which was on our boundary and which was put up by us some years ago. Can we get them to put it back? If not, what can we do about it?

If the fence was your property and on your land you can ask your neighbours to replace it, and if they refuse you can sue them for the cost of replacing it. If they’re planning to replace the fence with one of their own, make sure they put the fence posts on their side of the boundary and not where they were before, otherwise they’ll be encroaching on your garden. When neighbours start taking fences down it’s often a prelude to a dispute over the boundary line. See a solicitor if this proves to be the case.
