As a property owner, you may face issues relating to the ownership of your property. This could be because you have squatters in your buy to let property; a previous solicitor or conveyancer made an error in advising you when you bought the property; someone claims they own the property (or party of it) by way of adverse possession; or there is a dispute over the location of the boundary between your property and your neighbour’s.
Adverse possession is where someone occupies a piece of land or a property belonging to someone else without permission. It is essentially squatting. If the person occupies the land in a certain way for a certain number of years (10 or 12, depending on the circumstances), it is possible for them to apply for the land to become theirs.
Adverse possession claims can be complex and require historic information and evidence. We can assist in collating the information to make your claim, or indeed to defend a claim made against a piece of your land.
If you have an empty residential property, there is a risk that a trespasser or “squatter” might enter and move in. Unfortunately for property owners, you must obtain a possession order before you can evict the trespasser. This is what they refer to as “squatters’ rights”.
We will deal with a claim for possession against trespassers urgently to ensure that you recover your property safely and quickly.
Errors and misrepresentations when you purchased the property
Sometimes errors made by the people who sold you the property raise their heads after you have moved in. If your seller told you as part of your purchase process that you were purchasing something that you weren’t, you may have a claim for misrepresentation against your seller.
Likewise, sometimes the professionals acting for us make mistakes. We have a dedicated professional negligence team who will be able to advise you as to whether you may also have a claim against your surveyor and / or solicitor

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!"
