Although a complex area of the law, boundary disputes are extremely common. The most common being a dispute of boundaries with a neighbour.

When you’re in a boundary dispute with a neighbour, you will benefit from working with a specialist solicitor for boundary issues.


Why boundary issues are difficult

Many people are under the assumption that a boundary separating two properties is a straight line. This is not the case, boundaries can change over time and that is where the complexity normally lies.

Boundaries change, and that comes down to many reasons. One of the most popular being that a straight line over time has been moved or changed slightly due to the removal or replacement of that boundary.


How our boundary issue solicitors can help

Boundary disputes can occur in relation to residential, commercial and agricultural land. We’re experienced with all three types of boundary disputes, and the most common being residential.

One of the reasons that boundary disputes develop over time is due to the fact that neighbours have an understanding (right or wrong) that a piece of land is theirs. It’s imperative that we investigate and find out who owns the disputed land.

Clear evidence can squash such issues, but the problem arises when the land has changed, or the document or lease describes the land inaccurately.

Many cases start with a minor disagreement between two neighbours, but they often blow up into something much bigger when you can’t agree on who owns the land. This is why it’s imperative to seek our expert advice and ensure the issue doesn’t develop and cost you a lot of time and money.
