Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you

Could you explain a little more about the background to your question please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
In 1997 I went to Australia and on my return found that my neighbors, Mr and Mrs mower, had put up a fence, over the boundary line, onto what is my property, but not over the whole length of the garden. Subsequently, and always when I was not around, they completed the fence over the whole length of the garden. I tried to get them to talk about the situation through the Mediation Service but they refused to do this. I now want to sell my house want to know if anything can be done about this situation or just bite on the bullet and accept the situation.
