About 8 years ago DH built a garage at the end of our drive, when doing so he left roughly 4ft gap from the boundary where he stored things from his business as a builder (cement mixer, ladders, wheelbarrow - which are still there). Because this bit of land is tucked away my DH put down a membrane and covered it with chippings. This morning my brother in law, who is going to do some hard landscaping for me, arrived with some materials so he can start the work next week. When checking the equipment on this little strip of land the adjoining neighbour told him it belonged to his property and the equipment should not be there. (There is a large hedge neighbours side of the piece of land) Brother in law (no shrinking violet) told them in no uncertain terms they were mistaken and the land belonged to my property.
Now my problem is that I don't want to fall out with them (although I have very little to do with them - just say hello over the garden wall), but if I back down and let them claim this bit of land, there is another strip of land also adjoining their property which they may also try to lay claim to.
They haven't yet said anything to me but if they do, should I let them have the land just to keep the peace or, as it were, stand my ground.
Sorry this is such a long post
