ACCESS TO A NEIGHBOUR'S LAND TO CARRY OUT REPAIRS
It is very common for neighbour disputes to arise where neighbours do not allow each other access to their land in order to carry out repairs to their own property or land. Given the fact that the majority of homes are semi-detached, there will be a time sooner or later when such access will become necessary.
There may be a right of entry specifically for the purposes of inspection or repair in the property’s legal documents. If there is no such right, or no agreement can be reached, the law allows you as the person wishing to carry out repairs to apply to the county court for an access order allowing you to enter your neighbour’s land to carry out the repairs. There is a fee for the application.
