Private and public nuisance
A private nuisance occurs where someone does something lawfully on their own land, but which interferes with their neighbour’s enjoyment of their land. Private nuisance can come from residential or a commercial property. Where that nuisance affects the general public, this is likely to be known as a public nuisance.
There are many examples of nuisance including:
- Noise nuisance from a neighbouring kennels;
- Oil leaking from a tank, contaminating the neighbour’s soil;
- Water flooding from a neighbour’s land;
- Tree roots causing damage to a neighbour’s land.
Where that nuisance affects the general public, this is likely to be known as a public nuisance. For example, road obstructions or dust from factories.

What Our Clients Say
Mr M, Leeds
"Worth every penny. Totally delighted with the outcome of my protracted conflict with a problem Tenant. A huge thank you to Connor and Ed in achieving such a small time frame through the labyrinthine judicial paper trail associated with evictions which had previously had me frustrated beyond belief. Cheers guys."
Mr S, Leeds
"The rebuilding of my house went horribly wrong with the main contractor going into liquidation and subsequently a number of defects coming to light. Thanks to Ed I have managed to recover almost half of the cost of the build from the architect who was managing the build - considerably more than I originally expected. I would highly recommend Ed particularly for his grasp of detail in a case involving hundreds of emails, photographs and pages of experts reports."
Mr B, Leeds
"What great service Ed provided me with, the end result was what I wanted. Cheers again."
Mr M, Leeds
"I’d like to thank you again for all your efforts in this case. I have always felt confident throughout that we would reach the right conclusion and it has been seamless. That has been in no little part to your reassurance and diligence along the way."
Mr P, Wakefield
"Absolutely delighted with the outcome at court! A massive thank you to Ed Smith and his team for his hard work, professionalism and attention to detail. Highly recommend!"
