What is ‘Professional Advice’?

Professional advice results from the application of the training and experience of our professional staff to an analysis of some aspect of your land, its boundaries and any rights of way or other easements that may affect your land.

Professional advice may help you to better understand some aspect of your land; it may inform your decisions as to how to progress your interests; it may help you to decide how to move towards settlement of a dispute with a neighbour.

Examples of Professional Advice

In the context of the services offered by Jon Maynard Boundaries Ltd, Professional Advice covers any service that does not fit neatly into a category described by another page of this site. For example:

  • Advice as to the ownership of individual trees in a belt of trees separating the rear gardens of two developments where the placement of fences did not follow the boundaries.
  • Advice on how to deal with the unsubstantiated claims of a neighbour as to the position of a boundary.
  • Investigation of the exact width of a private right of way when the neighbour disputes whether the width of the track is sufficient to satisfy a planning condition.
  • Analysis of old published maps to advise on whether a public footpath has ever been used as a bridleway.
  • Interpretation of aerial photographs in support of a planning application for the creation of a Mansard roof extension on a building in multiple occupancy.
  • Advice on how to define and describe a new private right of way.

In short, we are able to offer advice in any circumstance where our expertise in land measurement, map interpretation, air photo interpretation, and interpretation of spatial information (in legal, planning or other documents) may be brought to bear.

Service offered

The services that are offered will be as varied as the circumstances in which and the purposes for which they are sought. We can offer to:

  • obtain, examine and interpret documentary evidence,
  • consult on site and inspect the land in question,
  • make measured land surveys and draw plans,
  • produce reports in the form of a business letter,
  • correspond with other professionals on the issues we have investigated.

Expected outcome

The client will be more knowledgeable and better advised on the particular issues on which professional advice has been sought and able to make better informed decisions arising out of this knowledge.
