The legal definition for a property boundary is: ‘The invisible line dividing one person’s land from another’s. It does not have thickness or width and usually, but not always, falls somewhere in or along a physical boundary feature such as a wall, fence or hedge.’

Buying an older property doesn’t mean you can avoid boundary disputes. Boundary divisions can drift over time.

Lines marked on Land Registry Title plans are often on scales of 1:1,250 making it very hard to assess property ownership in detail.tes
