Retaining Walls

A retaining wall is any structure made to retain or hold soil behind it. Among the numerous materials that one can make retraining walls with are treated timber, poured concrete, concrete blocks, boulders or rocks. When the ground level between the land on two sides of a wall changes, you should build a retaining wall. It should be stronger than the common walls so that it can offer maximum support to the land retained on the higher side. Some...

Typical Boundary Descriptions

Typical boundary descriptions are in the parcels clause of the initial conveyance concerning the parcel of land. Unfortunately, the deeds do not disclose who wrote the parcels clause. It could have been the seller tasked with deciding where the boundary would fall, or the real estate agent selling the land on the seller's behalf, or the solicitor responsible for conveyancing.  Defining and Identifying Property Line Examples...

The Position of Boundaries

Documentary Evidence for the Position of Boundaries The conveyance plan or the transfer plan uses 'T-marks' to show the ownership. Alternatively, the deed wording can state who the owner is. When you cannot determine the owner, you can use physical evidence to establish the position of the boundary. Careful research may produce evidence of more historical documents that may or may not have been formally registered with the Land Registry,...

Defining and Identifying Property Line

Boundary lines, or property lines, are used to define points where your land ends and where your neighbour's land starts. This information is contained in your property deed or survey files you received when purchasing the property. You can also get it from the county assessor's office using mapping tools. Before you erect any structure along the boundary line, for instance, a fence, be sure to verify the correct position of your...

Responsibility for Fences

A fence is a permanent structure that surrounds premises and offers security and protection for those within. There are no stipulated laws that demand that it is compulsory for one to surround their premises with a fence. If you have purchased a property with existing fences, the conveyance deed may include a specific agreement requiring the purchaser of the land and property to maintain the fence. Defining property boundaries:...

Extensions and Boundary Lines

Every once in a while, you may want to extend your house for both practical and financial gains. It is within the law, as well as clearly stipulated in your local Development Plan as long as it does not interfere with the appearance of the existing property, adjoining properties and the set of terms and scale, design and materials. Having said that, you may realise that a lot of consideration is required when one is planning a domestic...

Selling a Property with Boundary Dispute

If you are amidst an ongoing boundary dispute with your neighbour, it can eventually worsen to the point where you'd rather move away. However, the looming question is whether or not the seller will be able to sell a property that has a dispute over its boundary. The short answer is that it depends on the purchasing method of the buyer; they will not be able to secure a mortgage when there is a dispute over the boundary. However, this restriction...

Can I remove my Boundary Hedge

Hedges are popular among homeowners for their decorative appeal, as well as their ability to define and decorate property boundaries. However, they must be planted on agreeable property boundaries to serve sufficiently as borders. Despite their aesthetics and practical versatility, they are often the cause of conflicts and disputes between neighbouring parties. Disagreements often arise regarding their maintenance or when their roots grow...
