Can you make two gardens one?

If myself and my neighbour want to make our two gardens one by taking out the boundary fence, do we need any permission to do so? The houses are freehold & detached. Thank you in advance for any advice.

  • If you both own the freeholds to your respective houses then I can't see why not, you shouldn't need permission. If you merged the respective titles into one, this would likely have a detrimental effect on value of your respective houses. However if it is only to share the space without any transfer it should be fine.

  • The above advice is spot on. And as long as there is absolute trust between both parties it should be fine. If either of you ever wanted to sell in the future, the gardens would have to be split again, so making sure a boundary fence/hedge/wall is in the correct place is important. Leaving something to mark the boundary would be wise in case you want to split the gardens again in the future. Good luck.

  • Lots of people do this. Do make two copies of a good quality plan, and both of you sign both copies. Also make an agreement that either party can revoke the arrangement and build the fence again.
