Need a Solicitor to help with a Dispute over Boundary?
No matter what type of boundary dispute you see yourself faced with, we can help.
Here at Nicholson Jones Sutton Solicitors, there isn’t much that we haven’t come across in our property litigation department.
We are often instructed on straightforward matters where neighbours are able to discuss some planned works prior to the works going ahead, and this would of course be the best way to deal with issues such as where a new fence should be put up.
However, more often than not, we are instructed where some alterations or building works have gone ahead without the other neighbour’s permission, and this is where the headache can begin.
The classic scenario often involves one neighbour believing that they are responsible for a fence or boundary, and they go ahead and replace an old fence or boundary with something new, only to later find out that their neighbour thought that the fence belonged to them, which can result in a dispute.
Another example of a common boundary dispute is where a neighbour decides that they want to build a new wall up their driveway, and this may cause the neighbouring property problems when they try to access their own driveway.
We often hear of neighbours arguing over small strips of land which have been taken by the erection of a new wall or fence, and whilst it may only seem like a small issue, the real problem lies with the access to their property for their car or bins.
In these types of situations, we strongly encourage that you speak with your neighbour in an amicable way wherever possible. If you have already tried to speak with your neighbour, and if you would like us to assist in those discussions, we can help by writing to your neighbour in order to try to commence some negotiations.
In some instances where you are able to reach an agreement with your neighbour, a boundary agreement could be drawn up in order to clearly state who is responsible for what, and where the boundary lies.
This may involve the consideration of various documents such as plans, OS Maps, Land Registry documents and Property Information Forms from previous property purchases.
We may also recommend the use of an independent surveyor who would visit the properties and assess the measurements/check the existing boundary.
Our team has decades of combined experience in dealing with Boundary Disputes Claims. We are sympathetic, understanding, and are here to help you every step of the way.
Nicholson Jones Sutton Solicitors can usually handle Boundary Disputes Claims on a No Win No Fee basis.
