    We are interested in a village house that does not have any outside space to the rear of the property. The garden of a neighbouring house comes right up to the properties rear wall, does this seem correct or should there be a minimum space between the neighbours garden and the wall of the house we are interested in to allow us to do any necessary repairs . I thought I read someome about 1 metre, or maybe I read it wrong.

    Regards

    It is common in villages for gardens to be all over the place, often backing onto or beside other people’s houses. If ever you required access to your rear wall you would just have to ask your neighbours!
    Only with new build properties (or new boundary walls/fences etc) are there restrictions on where boundary walls etc go.
    p.s. you may be interested to know that the estate agent you had brief dealings with last year is, apparently, no longer trading after a tax or somesuch investigation/clampdown that is going on with the real estate industry 😉

    Hi Ambre, I posted about boundaries a while ago, as we were told that we could build within 3 metres of our boundary and

    Not that much help but maybe you could PM him! I think in villages the done thing is for anyone and everyone to wander in out out of your garden..at least that how I am assuming half the village knows about my new door or new whatever..

    Good luck,

    Hi Heather

    Thanks for your reply, I did read your thread before posting my question. I was just thinking the neighbour may be gardening on some of “my” land, important even if it is only a metre or two. Maybe this is something the lawyer will check if we go ahead with the purchase.

    You can always check for yourself your boundaries using the Catastral registry website.

    Assuming the catastral plans are correct ‘ one of the problems with village properties are that they can be differences between the boundaries as described in the escitura and the catastral plans, as these are not updated ass they used to be used for taxation but now aren´t! You should ask to see the existing escitura and check this agrees with the catastral plans anyway.
