Practical and straightforward property dispute resolution
Our team of specialists in property dispute resolution provide straightforward, practical advice to help you get the outcome you’re after. We’ll carefully assess your situation and make your options clear. Often we can avoid a full-blown dispute, but if it’s heading that way we’ll assess your chances of success and look at alternatives to court action, such as mediation.
We’ve experience in dealing with all areas of property dispute, including:
- Rights over land
Property rights can include access, water, light and drainage – all are crucial to the enjoyment of your land and its value. Your rights are a valuable asset that you’ll want to protect.
- Boundary disputes
Defining boundaries legally and on the ground can be difficult and time-consuming for a landowner. If you’re not careful, your land can be eaten away at the edges.
Restrictive covenants may stop you doing what you want with your land. On the other hand, they may give you a say in what others do with theirs.
- Squatters’ rights
If a ‘squatter’ takes control of your land for long enough, usually 10 years or more, they can apply to become the owner.
- Evicting squatters
Although squatting can be a criminal offence, removing squatters from your property can be frustrating and time consuming to say the least.
- Joint ownership issues
If you fall out with your fellow joint owner(s), it can be stressful trying to agree what should happen to the property. Knowing everyone’s options and rights early on can make things much easier.
- Professional negligence
If you’ve received the wrong advice, or your professional adviser has not taken action when they should have, you may have lost out. So what can you do about it?
Whatever your situation you can rely on our property dispute lawyers to give clear, decisive and pragmatic advice from start to finish.
