Our neighbour wants to enclose his entire garden in a two metre high wall. The footings will be quite deep and he wants to render it.
He has asked us if we would like to pay half of the £2000 cost for the section that borders our garden, so that our side would also be rendered by the builder.
He says that if we do not we will have to live with a breeze block wall and we will not be allowed to paint it or attach anything to it. Is he right?
What are our rights if his foundations damage our shrubs which were all planted many years ago in agreement with the previous owners.
At present his garden contains only grass, but our side is bounded by holly, viburnum bodnantense, and other shrubs which are themselves two metres high, without any gaps.
The rest of the garden is bounded by a fence, not visible because of extensive planting.
What do others think about this?
I should be grateful for any comments and advice.
