Advice please. My daughter has bought her first property. The neighbour next door but one has his 3 wheelie bins under my daughters kitchen window. He says they have to stay there as he has no where to put them. This is because he has made a pretty garden in the front of his property. He is a council tenant and my daughters property is lease hold so she does not own the land. Where do we stand with this please as my daughter would like a pretty garden but cannot do this as his bins are in the way. Many thanks.

    As already been discussed, she needs to formalise it in writing and give him a "notice period" to be fair, say a week to remove said items, if not then move them onto the other property's land.

    Is the kitchen window infront of her house or to the side? Are the bins on her boundary or his? If they’re in front of her house I would just move them. He’s being out of order

    Not clear what you mean by this - do you mean she has only a leasehold interest in the bit of land where the neighbour's bins are (in which case it is "her" land and she can stop other people occupying it), or do you mean she doesn't have any rights over the land outside her kitchen window (in which case she might have to put up with it).

    What’s the set up? Is her window right on the road? Who owns the land the bins are on?

    Offer to let him leave the bins there for, say £15 per week.
    my daughters property is lease hold so she does not own the land.
    Please clarify. The land outside the kitchen window is not within the boundary of her lease? Has she checked the leasehold title plan?
    If it is not, is it within the leasehold Plan of another property/flat within the building?
    Or is it shared (read the lease)?
    Or is it simply owned by the freeholder (check the freehold title plan)? If so, who is the freeholder (check the freehold Title)?

    The neighbour next door but one - so not even her actual neighbour (not that it would make it much better)?  Cheeky gits!  That takes some massive sense of privilege assuming they have no rights over the land (which is highly unlikely).

    If she wants a pretty garden then tell her to go ahead and make one, having moved the bins back to their rightful owner.  Put a flower bed under the window so there's nowhere for them to put the wheelie bins.
