Meeting your neighbours, moving and visiting your new home is an exciting thing. Disagreements and concerns over land boundaries with your neighbour are common. This may lead to a fallout and becomes difficult to resolve. Our experience can assist in resolving these issues before they end up in court.
Have you ever asked yourself what happens when your neighbours complain that your new wall is overlapping their land? They can also claim that your new house extensions disrupt the pathway between houses.
Such minor disputes can build up and finally lead to a party wall dispute that may involve a solicitor's letter and threats of court action. The legal and other costs involved in this can quickly escalate and become enormous if not managed correctly.
If you have boundaries or party wall disputes with your neighbour or other parties, it is always advisable to follow the right steps that will help you to find a dispute resolution.

A Chartered Surveyor may be appointed by one side or as a Single Joint Expert in consultation with your neighbour. The registered surveyor will deliver a professional and unbiased advice about the position of the boundary.
If your neighbour delays and refuses to hire surveyors to settle the disagreement, you can take the next step by submitting an application to the Land Registry. They will conduct a thorough research and survey of the land and come up with a decision about where exactly the boundaries lines are.
