    I need some advice on this: I have got a big shed at the back of my garden which is about 20 years old. When I was restoring the shed, I realized the 2 fences behind the shed are no longer straight. Neighbours have replaced them since I built the shed and are now V-shaped and taking some my garden space. Obviously they are not my fences. The boundary fence between the two houses whose gardens back on to mine ends behind my fence, which was a straight line before I built the shed over 20 years ago. The neighbours have during that time replaced their fences and seem to have taken advantage of my not being able to see what they are up to, and in the process have slightly expanded their property at the expense of mine.
    I don't know how long they have been like this as none of the neighbours told me when they were changing their fences. I have already spoken to the neighbours and all deny any knowledge.

    How much area/distance are you talking? How big is your/their gardens? One sometimes has to be pragmatic about these things as boundary disputes of this nature can be notoriously difficult to resolve.

    The V shaped fences size are both 6’ x 6’ and they stick out about a foot into my garden. One of the fences is actually quite badly leaning into our garden too. I deliberately left about 18 inches space between my shed and the fences so that I can walk around the back of the shed. But now there's insufficient room to squeeze past. So, the actual amount of space they've pinched is not great, but the inconvenience to me is considerable.
