no unless they put gates on that could be oepend and closed so we could gain access and reminded them it was our right. They said they would do this if I paid for the gates which I said I would not as I couldn't afford to.The last time I went down the garden (about 8 weeks ago) they had leaned some old ornamental gates across the opening, I wasn't entirely happy with this. I now have a little spare time and hopefully some funds with which to sort our entire garden out. Tonight I have fought my way through the jungle and have seen that my neighbour has secured these ornamental gates in place, along the bottom into the drive and also via a bracket onto the brick wall (which as far as I can tell is mine).Can anyone advise please? I am loathe to engage a solicitor as at the end of proceedings have to live here and also would struggle to pay one. My initial reaction is to unbolt these gates and lean them against my neighbours house although talking to them first is probably the best plan. My gut feeling though is they will just insist there doing it to keep the grand kids out of our jungle.As far as i'm aware 1.they have no right to block the drive2.have no right to block access to my property3.have no right to affix anything to my garden wall4.i have no obligation to fence my property in my circumstances5.i am within my rights to ask them to remove this fence and if they do not then remove it myself and send them the bill for doing so.thanks in advance, I can take photos if needed.editjust to answer a few points.The gates they have erected are bolted together and to the driveway they cannot be oepend without the use of tools and probably 20 mins time ttwo people.Yes our rear garden is overun however it is our garden it is not my responsibilty to ensure my neighbours grand kids / visitors etc do not trespass onto it. I do not allow my young children to enter it, they could if they were unsupervised but as a responsible parent I don't leave young children without adequate supervision.As originally stated I am not unreasonable they are welcome to put up a fence as long as they put gates in so I can access my property which I have a right to do so. It is not me who blocks the driveway meaning I can't get a wheelbarrow down least alone a van to actually enable my to sort the garden out.To finish and clarify it is our garden, not our part of a shared one.
