Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. Can you tell me if you have a copy of the deed plan that would have been drawn up at the time of the sale. Does the plan cover all three plots, ie, the farm, the retained land and the land on which the house is situated? What is the scale of the plan?
Sorry for the delay in replying. I wanted to discuss your situation with a land surveyor. Plans of the whole properties will be required. A land surveyor will be needed to take detailed measurements. A new plan should be drawn based on what is on the ground. That plan should be compared with the existing deed plans. That will show to what extent there is encroachment with the deed plans. Thereafter if the neighbour doesnt agree with the extent of any encroachment it would be for you to take proceedings against the neighbour.
