    Boundaries

    We can't make head nor tail of our title deeds with regard to working out an exact (or very close to exact) boundary line. Any idea which professional or LA dept we would contact to get someone to come check the deeds and physically show us? Tnx

    I can do this for you but I would need £4 to download your Title Plan.

    Tnx guys, we already have the title deeds and associated plans, but altho the boundary is marked in red,outline it is difficult (for us anyway) to ascertain where we draw the line (literally) for fencing.

    It sounds to me like you are going to need to get someone to come around (surveyor) and for them to work this out for you. This can be costly. Therefore it is worth speaking to your neighbour and getting their opinion and agreement to a fence where you both consider it should be.

    Tnx magicjay, that's what we thought. We have tried the low cost route ie to reach a mutual agreement with the neighbour but he is an A1 pratt (polite adjective) and has also refused the offer of mediation over the problem. So a Surveyor and a fence it is, and we will just have to bite the bullet re the cost.

    Surveyor is the way forward I would say. Then put the ball in their court.

    Or, you could order your neighbours Title Plan and put it together with yours to see what the score is.

    Try estates department of ur local council - if it's an ex-council house they keep a copy of the deeds, and if not might be able to point you in the right direction anyhow.

    ^^ Agree with magic re getting your neighbours plan - surely with both plans it should be fairly clear where the line is...
