Advice On Boundary Disputes
Are you in the middle of a dispute with your neighbour concerning land boundaries? Well, you are not alone. A majority of land owners rarely pay attention to specific details about their land after purchase, hence, miss out on vital aspects such as clear land boundaries. Some simply assume that their land boundaries run in a straight line along the edges. While this may be true, most times it remains just as it is, an assumption.
Despite advancement in technology such as Google earth satellite photos, street view and Land Registry plans, establishing an exact land boundary is not as easy as it seems. A chartered surveyor who specialises in land boundaries can analyse the information and establish clear boundaries between you and your neighbour's land.
We handle disputes involving adverse possession, rights of way, trees & hedges, nuisance neighbours, breaches to contract and land boundaries. Additionally, we offer professional advice on issues relating to Access to Neighbouring Land Act and the Party Wall Act.
We act as a go-between to ensure you and your neighbour come into agreement terms without going to court.
