My neighbour has asked my permission to build a terrace of 12 cottages on a a strip of land of about 2.9 acres known as Stan Bwek which according to my original deeds belongs to him. The thing is he's acting as though it all belongs to me. He seems to be a bit confused because in truth I just control access to the concrete driveway running through the plot where in any case he has a right of way. So he's sent me these detailed plans and asked my permission to build on his own land but I suddenly started thinking that the crafty old codger is onto quite a good idea that I could easily do myself because there's a lot of new business in the nearby coastal region known as Ravenside and dwellings like that are going to sell like hot cakes at really good prices. So what I've done is, I've got hold of the original plans from my solicitors and put them in the safe at home and told the old codger that permission is refused. Whatever he was willing to pay I'm sure I can make a lot more by doing the buildings myself on what is after all his land and then selling them off before the old codger even knows what's happened.<br><br>km<br><br>
Ever hear of Jarndyce vs. Jarndyce in Dickens's Bleak House? Not quite the same circumstances, but the outcome might just be about the same--all the money gone to the legal profession.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

Well I don't really see the old codger being able to do much about it. I've actually managed to fence off quite a lot of his land already but because he's disabled he's got big problems ever trying to get it back - especially with the judge always taking my side whenever it gets argumentative. <br><br>km<br><br>
