I have just joined this forum because I am in need of some urgent help. I received a letter from a géomètre company on the 19/10/2019. The letter states that one of my neighbours has enlisted their services to establish a boundary (division parcellaire pour plans de vente). Our properties gardens border one another. A meeting is to be held on the 30/10/2019 to address the boundary dispute.
The problem is, is that I don’t permanently live in France. I currently live in the UK. I had no prior knowledge to this dispute until Saturday morning. Which means I haven’t had sufficient time to organise a trip over to France. Does anyone know whether I can have a family member attend the meeting on my behalf?
I have detailed documentation dating from 1959. Which states the measurements of my plot. My properties plot is fenced off too. I cannot speak French. However I have a family member who is fluent in French that is able to attend on my behalf.
Can someone please offer me some advice? I’m extremely worried. As a member of my family went to the local land registry(?) office and was told that if I don’t attend my neighbour could take half my garden. I’ve also read online that I will have to pay 50% of my neighbour’s bill?
