We have heard so many rumours in recent years about applying anti-vandal paint to your garden walls or fences. With people prosecuted and charges filed.
You are well within your rights to apply anti-vandal paint to your boundary walls, but you MUST follow this simple advice before you go and spread this wet and sticky paint.
- The paint must be applied at a sensible height. You do not want to ruin anyone’s clothes when they pass by!
- A big sign is vital, you must let people know that anti-vandal paints have been applied to this wall
- A clear and well-placed sign will exclude you from any court proceedings; we would also advise you to take a picture of this sign
If you own the property, then you are well within your rights to sensibly apply anti-vandal or anti-climbing paint to your walls, fences and house.
But, if you do not own your property, then be sure to ask the landlord before doing so. If you live in a council house or housing association, be sure to get prior approval.
