Land Boundaries - Practical Advice
Land boundaries have been the cause of many disagreements among even family members.
However, it is not always essential to involve legal litigation.
Before involving any authority in an attempt to resolve your dispute, it's not a bad idea to communicate with your neighbours and reach an agreement.
After all, you do have to live with your neighbours.
It is recommended that you note down the results of discussions to avoid the same issue arising at a later date.
The title deed doesn't always describe the boundaries clearly, so the law allows two adjoining owners to agree on the position of the border to clarify the description.
You can request the land registry to record on title register upon agreement between you and your neighbour.
Though you should make it clear to the Land Registry that you are not transferring the land from one party to another, merely clarifying boundary description.
