Boundary and Ownership

Whether you own the freehold or leasehold of your property, you may be subject to certain restrictions and legal obligations which affect the way in which you use your property.

Disputes involving your home can be extremely stressful and time-consuming. From decades of experience, we know that these disputes can,unless managed well, become disproportionate to the issues involved and ‘snowball’.

With that in mind, wherever possible we will help you to resolve any issues with your neighbours by negotiation, mediation or arbitration. Of course, there are occasions when a settlement may not be possible. If litigation does become unavoidable, our experienced property dispute lawyers can guide you through the civil court or tribunal processes, working with you at every step of the way to reach an amicable resolution.

Our areas of property dispute expertise include:

  • Boundary disputes
  • Easements (rights of way, rights to light)
  • Adverse possession claims
  • Dealing with trespassers or squatters
  • Restrictive covenants (restrictions on the use of your property)
  • Nuisance claims
  • Co-ownership disputes
  • Breaches of leasehold covenants
  • Party Wall Act Disputes (for when you are carrying out work on or close to the boundary)

Our team of specialist solicitors have years of experience in successfully handling a wide range of boundary and ownership disputes in an effective and cost efficient manner.
