    I understand being peeved at the fence and the stuff being left everywhere but the guy sounds sensible and I'm sure would keep it tidy if you made that a condition of using it. I don't understand why people are saying he's a scumbag - he sounds like he was perfectly reasonable on the phone (seeing as this was the FIRST time he knew you weren't happy with things I understand how taken aback he was) - saying he'll move all the stuff straight away and fix the fence etc.

    I would have accepted his offer to do the slashing and just asked that he repair the fence and keep the area tidy/clear of their items. Poor kids with a massive block of land going to waste right next to them.
    So you would be happy for someone to break into your property, destroy your fence and rip up the land? As well as leaving their own property on it?
    Seriously poor kids??? I certainly wouldn't set that example for my kids.

    Also the phone call was a third contact attempt, they'd gone to their house, they weren't there so they left a note.

    See I agree to a degree with the above in that yeah it shouldn't be a big deal to let some kids stretch their legs on an unused block of land. I think what is rude is that they aren't 'being kids' playing tiggy and ball games - they're ripping up the lawn and soil with motorized equipment (ie dirt bikes) without asking... Showing blatant disrespect for someone else's property.

    As I said, NO I wouldn't be happy with the fence and leaving stuff on it. But this guy said he'd attend to those issues.

    If dirt tracks on your land get you upset then fair enough. All I'm saying is, this land isn't being used for anything at all. Who the heck cares about dirt tracks on vacant investment land?? Weird being "furious" and contacting lawyers over such a thing IMO.

    If it‘s done enough, it can destroy the land and soil quality.

    The issue that would concern me most, would be potentially being sued if their kids fell off their motorbikes or something on the land.

    So I wouldn't let them use it even though it's a vacant block.

    Well the owner of the property in this instance cares...l wouldnt let my kids use someone elses property especially without permission. I would want my kids to understand you need to respect other peoples' property. If my kids wanted to ride their dirt bikes on the vacant land l would ask them not to use it until l had spoken to the neighbour and gotten their ok.

    No way would I raise my kids with such a sense of entitlement. Giving them the idea that it is acceptable to 1. cut through a fence 2. store belongings on someone else's property 3. use their friggin' dirtbikes on said property without permission! Seriously question anyone thinking this is an "ok" thing to do (glad you're not MY neighbours!).

    I don't think it's weird. What makes other people so special they can determine how a vacant block of land is used, that DOESN'T belong to them?
    We own a vacant block of land. It's not quite big enough for people to go dirt biking on it thankfully, but our neighbours seem to think they can use it as their dumping ground and storage for trailers, extra parking etc. I think it is so, so rude, especially since we have to clear it, and PAY for it to be cleared. Essentially we are paying to dispose of our neighbours' rubbish, because they are too lazy to do the right thing. Who do they think they are?
    It is MY property. Get off it!!

    Um what planet are you living on????

    You think it's ok to utilise someone else's property? You have no respect!

    Our property was already starting to look like this neighbours backyard... which is a rubbish tip! If someone can't keep their own yard tidy do you really think they would keep another person's property tidy??

    If one of his kids gets hurt on our property we would be the ones being held responsible!

    We live in a country town, there is vacant bushland right across the road which is owned by the council and there is a marsh surrounding the entire town... they can go and ride there or better still move to a bigger property should they desire more room, don't use someone else's property! It is NOT ok and not your property to utilise just because it's vacant.

    We ourselves live next door to a vacant property and we don't assume it's ok to use it, it doesn't belong to us, someone else has paid good money for it!
    Besides, our kids have enough space in their own backyard, they don't have a need to go onto others property.

    The first part was a bit OTT, the PP was just offering a differing perspective. The second bolding was a bit of an entitled statement, you don't know their financial situation, maybe they can't afford a bigger yard.

    The bikes on my property would annoy me to no end, so would the storing of their belongings there, however kids playing tiggy or whatever on my vacant block wouldn't. Kids playing harmless games that do no damage, who cares. Don't you remember what it was like to be a kid? All that vacant land going to waste would be so tempting to play on. Kids love wide open spaces.

    That being said it's your property so your choice. It does seem a little wasteful to just let it sit there. Get them to fix the fence and move their stuff.
