Disputes about the ownership of and rights relating to land can generate complex legal arguments. The issues are rarely black and white, but the outcomes can be nothing but.
Certainty is a key ingredient which can be missing from day-to-day property matters. Physical boundaries can spend years as approximations, for example and it’s only when a claim is resolved that they’re given true definition.
Property disputes are about more than just making things clear. They can involve injunctions, forcing someone to do, or stop doing, something in relation to the property. They can include claims about:
- right to light
- adverse possession
- charging orders
- mortgage possession
- rights of way
- Land Registry rectification
- Planning permission and refusals
And then there are landlord and tenant disputes like possession proceedings and disrepair and dilapidations claims as well as business lease renewals, service charge disputes and rent reviews.
