A PENSIONER has been left furious after his neighbour put up a 6ft-tall fence between their gardens.
Peter Laver, 73, returned from a weekend away to find neighbour Nicholas Williams had put up the structure.
Mr Williams also nailed a note to the fence warning people not to trespass.
But Peter insists he has every right to walk into the garden in Weymouth, Dorset.
The fence blocks access laid out in the deed – which was agreed when he bought the land to build his house 13 jare terug.
Peter claims he needs access to maintain drainage and look after boundary.

Selfs so, Mr Williams placed a note on the fence which read: “This space has been created only for our use.
“Any such request for access is to be in writing with at least 4 weke’ notice of exact details of work and time required.”
Praat met The Sun, Peter insisted he was in the right.
Hy het gesê: “I have a right to go into his garden any time – it’s there in black in white that I have a right of access to the land.”

Peter claimed that according to the deeds of his home he has the “right at all times of the day to enter with agents workmen and equipment upon the retained land as and when necessary for the purpose of inspecting repairing, maintaining and renewing the walls of the property.”
Hy het bygevoeg: “It was the first time I’d been in the garden since they moved in three years ago.
“They were happy for me to go in there then when I was helping them build it.
“I gave them all the equipment, did all the digger driving, and let them use my drive to get to the garden. I did everything for them.”
Mr Williams declined comment.
The Sun earlier told how dad Paul Kironji Gatu blasted his neighbours for putting up a 6ft fence “an arm’s length” from his front door to stop his son playing on land they are fighting over.
Paul is fuming as the brand new fence has blocked his three-year-old son Malichi from a garden where he kept a trampoline, slide and swings.
The 44-year-old always thought the patch of grass right outside his house belonged to him, as it could only be accessed from his path and his family were the only ones to use it.
If you’re also locked in a gruelling battle with your neighbour over a fence or boundary, here is how to find out your rights.
Eerstens, check the boundary by looking at the the deeds to a property.
If you haven’t already got these, you can purchase them from the Land Registry on the government’s website for £3.
This will show the layout and boundaries of the land you own.
Note that you can also purchase a neighbour’s title deeds to see whether any extra property boundaries are outlined in theirs that aren’t in yours.
If you’re in a dispute with a neighbour about property boundaries, you can get the Land Registry to step in.

It will be able to define a boundary that everyone agrees on and will prevent future arguments.
