This is important
and there might be pipes only a few meters down that you dont own that they have access right too aswell.
if you strike oil, gold, silver etc, withing the confines of your land rights then it's yours to keep/sell/whatever
if you find treasure or valuable archeology you get pretty well compensated too
you'd have to ask permission - you still own it.
I wonder what constitutes a permanent structure. Reconn you could make it out of sand bags and tarporlin? You dont need planning permission for a tree house
and most likely you have leasehold rather than freehold which means you don't own the land it's on and pay a ground rent every once in while, though this is often 'peppercorn', so like 1p a year or something.
It's now probably the only time in the year I have to find my cheque book.
I don't want to pay in advance to some schmuck who I don't even know money that I'm not sure why he should even have it.
If so that could really help with some storage issues I'm having.
I know that if you own a freehold, or shar thereof, you own the land the property is on, as well as the property itself, but as to whether you own the earth under your house to it's core, I don't know. It's completely irrelevent anyway (though undoubtedly interesting theoretically) because to get to any of the earth more that a few metres down, you would need all sorts of permissions that are higly unlikely to be granted in your average housing estate, mainly because it's likely to weaken the foundations of the surrounding houses.
But if you considered a large country house set in a large estate, if you discovered that there was precious metals below your land, and providing the council granted you permission, you could build a mine. Then imagine for a second, that you had developed technologies that could allow you to dig deeper than any mine before, even to the earth's core, surely you would be allowed to do so, providing you didn;t dig under anyone elses land.
Mind you, the northern line rund directly underneath my house, so does that mean I own a 20m section of the tube?
I'm making him live in a coal seam 1.5 miles down.
Can I class them as furniture?
Lucien - my little nephew is over from NZ and has a weird accent now. He says 'heaps' instead of 'lots' ie I've got heaps of lego at home.
If he does, he's too far gone for you to do anything to save him
He's only 5. The way he says 'door' is crazy.
