Resolving property and land issues

Whether you are a homeowner in a dispute with your neighbour, or a business or landlord having problems with tenants, disputes about property can generate complex legal arguments.

Property dispute resolution

Property issues are rarely black and white – 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 a property. They can include claims about:

  • Trespass
  • Nuisance
  • Right to light
  • Adverse possession
  • Charging orders
  • Mortgage possession
  • Boundary issues
  • Rights of way
  • Land Registry rectification
  • Planning permission and refusals
  • Probate and inheritance issues

There are also landlord and tenant disputes such as possession proceedings, disrepair and dilapidations claims as well as business lease renewals, service charge disputes and rent reviews.
