There is a small strip of land at the back of my house that is inbetween my fence and a wall for the car park to an old folks home. The strip of land is about 5 or 6 ft wide and runs to the edge of my land where there is a wall from another house (so it is effectively a dead end strip 6ft x 20ft approx).
The land is just full of brambles at the moment. I have always assummed that it belongs to the old folks home. I got a copy of my boundaries from the land registery but it is unclear whether the boundary is the wall or my fence.
I contacted the home's managment company to see if they wanted to sell it and after much badgering (about 12 months worth) they said they no. I wonder if that was just to shut me up.
Quite a few people have said just take it over. I put (propped) an old piece of fence up about two years ago and it has never been moved and no-one has ever said anything.
Anyone been in a similar situation?
