Disputes between neighbours

I advise and represent clients in all matters relating to disputes between neighbours such as:

  • Boundary disputes;
  • Disputes rights across another’s land such as easements, rights of way and related matters such as maintenance; and
  • Disputes concerning trespass and adverse possession.

Disputes between neighbours are some of the most contentious proceedings I am involved with. It must be because the parties live so close to one another. Indeed, I find that about 1 in 5 neighbour disputes results in physical violence or at least threats of! As well, usually somebody ends up selling house and moving away.

If you are currently in a disagreement with your neighbour, check your house insurance if you have opted for legal expenses insurance. If so, then your legal costs will likely be covered up to a limit which is usually either £50,000 or £100,000. It is worth calling your insurance company.
