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!

  1. The paint must be applied at a sensible height. You do not want to ruin any bodies cloths when they pass by!
  2. A big sign is vital, you must let people know that anti-vandal paints applied to this wall
  3. A clear a 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!
