Neighbour disputes

Sometimes issues between neighbours and those living close to each other arise. For example, in relation to boundaries, anti-social behaviour or other nuisance, rights of way, trees, or where people park their cars. It is often possible for neighbours to resolve their disputes between each other. However, where your dispute remains unsettled, we are here to help.

| Boundary and party wall disputes

Boundary disputes are some of the most fiercely fought disputes that we see. This is because it often feels like your neighbour is trying to take part of your land. Boundary issues are not often straightforward. Therefore, we will work closely with your appointed surveyor to advise you on the accurate location of your boundary. Once this is agreed, we will work with you to resolve the issue with your neighbour.

We can also assist you with Party Wall Act procedures. Whether you need advice on the best way to proceed, or to stop your neighbour carrying out works without consulting you, we can help.

| Nuisance and anti-social behaviour

If your neighbours are disturbing your enjoyment of your property, we can help. We are experienced in dealing with allegations of noise nuisance (from homes as well as nearby commercial properties); anti-social behaviour; and other nuisance including smoke and pollution.

| Tree and hedge disputes

Trees and hedges between properties can cause various neighbour disputes. These include tree roots causing damage to buildings; tree branches overhanging the neighbour’s garden; the hedge line changing, thus causing a boundary dispute; a neighbour removing a tree that you thought was on your land (trespass) and issues relating to Tree Preservation Orders and conservation areas.

| Rights of way disputes

In some situations, a property may benefit from a right of way over someone else’s property. Unfortunately, it is not always clear that a right of way does exist, or how it can be used. We work with property owners to protect their right of way or challenge it where required.

| Parking disputes

Parking disputes arise particularly in newer developments where on-road parking is limited. We have also acted in disputes over named parking spaces in large apartment blocks. Disputes usually arise because a neighbour blocks someone in, or repeatedly parks in someone’s designated space.
