Boundary disputes

Boundaries between properties are a traditional source of disagreements between neighbours that can quickly escalate from a minor matter to a major dispute, seriously affecting the quality of life of those involved.

When boundary disputes are involved, seeking legal advice at an early stage can be a wise investment in clarifying issues and identifying a way forward that can minimise the costs and time involved in resolving the issue.

Our property specialists understand that boundary issues can cause real distress and tension for the people involved in a disagreement.

We can advise on matters including

  • Where a boundary lies
  • The ownership of a boundary wall or fence, for example for repair purposes
  • Overhanging trees and bushes
  • Rights to light
  • Rights of way
  • Trespass and nuisance

We also understand that it is always preferable to reach solutions by drawing on our experience in these types of disputes and through discussion and negotiation, rather than through potentially time-consuming and costly litigation. However, we are also experienced in supporting clients through the courts where this is the only option for achieving their desired outcome.
