Thunderous noise this morning at about 4am, woke me up. UWOT

Apparently it was two helicopters, one of which was a Chinook flying not much higher than roof height along the beach. Skitter marks on my shorts like, ffs!

Does my head in when you get something delivered, they give you an option to choose where you want it left if you're out, then the delivery driver doesn't bother following the instructions. Not that big a deal today as I told them to leave it outside and they left it with the neighbours, so easily dealt with, but I've had them leave it at the depot before. Just defeats the point in giving you the option.

Right, so when we first moved in this old woman from next door popped a letter through the door, welcoming us to the neighbourhood and telling us that every two weeks we need to transfer her £8 because the grass outside the house needs to be maintained. Thought it was totally pointless that she is getting all 10 houses around the grass to fork out £200 a year so it can get cut every second week, so I went round to her house, introduced myself and told her I wasn’t going to pay the money and that I’d cut it myself. You know, because £2000 a year on getting some council owned grass cut is just Special

Received another letter through the door a couple of days later saying that I can cut my “patch” of grass if I want - I don’t actually have a patch of grass, it’s owned by the council and belongs to them - but don’t a dare cut anybody else’s patch because she doesn’t want to see her friend lose out on 2 grand a year, and that it is totally unfair that I expect the elderly community to be paying for this while I contribute nothing. 

Anyway, up until now I’ve not given her a penny of my money, I haven’t cut my own “patch” - probably because I’ve been too busy taking care of my actual front garden - and the grass has been getting cut every two weeks. Today I got this through the door.

She now somehow thinks that each homeowner has responsibility for their own patch of grass because it says it in our title deeds - it doesn’t. After telling her that there’s nothing in my title deeds about it - which has been confirmed by my solicitor - she got the local MP on the phone, came round to my door and played me a recording of what he said on the phone. Basically the council don’t have the time or manpower to cut it so if we can just keep cutting it ourselves that would be great. I’ll just be leaving it to grow wild. 

Fucking headcase.

I can't picture what you mean by the grass. Is it like a communal bit in front of all the houses?

You should've paid it for the first few months and then looked at alternative arrangements with the council while you settled in.

The whole neighbourhood probably hate you now and youre going to have a mess in front of your house which will affect the value of your property and livibilty of your area.

I quite like the idea of chipping a few pounds every couple of weeks with neighbours, it allows you an excuse to get to know the people around you more and the feeling of contributing to the local environment together is quite symbolic.

While I agree the council should be doing it, and this is something you should have pursued, you have made yourself look like an utter dick to your neighbours. Sounds like that old woman is at the end of her tether hence why she is coming across as a "headcase". You can't act like a renter when you buy somewhere, it's within your interest to ensure the local place is liveable and desirable.

It's actually the right answer, you just don't want to hear it.

I've put in money once a month to a neighbour who organised for the stair to be cleaned. Was thankful they were happy to sort it all and got to know her quite well. Pretty common practice tbh.

There are running costs when you buy and you should realise you have a stake in your local place.

It separates the front gardens from the pavement and the road.

Not a running cost I care to fund or need to fund.

You’re not allowed to do anything to your ‘patch’ because we don’t own them. Some people park their car on them though.

You've already mentioned that you said to her you'd cut your own patch, but the reality is you haven't had time to so it no doubt is fast starting to look scruffy. No chance you'll be out there every 2 weeks with your lawnmower like you promised.

This will no doubt be the case for most people (especially if there are elderly people who can't cut their own "patch). Makes perfect sense to get someone in every wee while to do the lot in one go. Works out cheaper for the neighbours who need to get someone in as they aren't able to cut theirs.

I wouldn't be suprised if most of the old folk can't and the young folk are too busy/lazy.
