Neighbour Disputes

Neighbour Dispute

Disputes involving neighbours are very common and the law encourages neighbours to discuss issues together and try to resolve them amicably and sensibly. However, when this is not possible and communication has broken down, or there is a deep misunderstanding that exists between two parties who cannot agree on land ownership, boundary lines or rights of way, then Lawson West’s team of dispute resolution specialists can review legal documentation and land registry records to ascertain title ownership, plans and any covenants which apply. We assist with all stages of negotiation and work towards a mutually agreeable resolution. When negotiation does not work, our experienced legal experts and litigators can support clients, advising on the best route towards resolution in their specific case.

We have a real expertise in handling a broad range of neighbour disputes, such as:

  • Boundary and Party Wall disputes

  • Rights of way disputes

  • Rights to light and other easement disputes

  • Trespass claims

  • Planning permission disputes and objections

  • Impact of adjoining new builds and neighbour extensions

  • Construction disputes with builders and other professionals such as architects and surveyors.

We offer a discounted, fixed fee of £165.00 plus VAT for an initial meeting to allow you to obtain advice and talk to a specialist litigator.
