Boundary Disputes

Everyone’s home is their castle, or so the saying goes. Property ownership is generally the result of years of hard work, time and effort. It can, therefore, be incredibly traumatic when the extent of our home is brought under threat, in the form of a boundary dispute, whether that be by an innocent neighbour encroachment onto adjacent land or a more contentious disagreement regarding the precise boundary location.  It is, therefore, natural and, indeed, expected that home owners will protect their home to the best of their ability.

Unfortunately, perhaps because of this boundary issues can be among the most bitterly contested of all litigation and any successes can be hard won.

How can we help you?

Our expert team of property litigation solicitors will discuss your options with you and devise a strategy that is commercially focused and aims to resolve the boundary dispute before proceedings are issued.

It is often very difficult to know where the precise boundary location is, so we will discuss your matter with expert boundary surveyors (either as part of the Pre-Action Boundary Dispute Protocol or simply in a bid to assess the merits or weaknesses of your claim) to arrive at a strategy which is suited to your specific needs. 

Where settlement is not possible, and proceedings are issued in respect of the boundary dispute, we will guide you through that process and provide you with advice to put you in the best position possible. That might include making an application for a determined boundary at the HM Land Registry, applying to the court for injunctive relief restraining unauthorised encroachment and/or seeking declarations from the court as to the boundary location to bring the boundary dispute to an end.

We have an enviable track record in this area, so if we can be of any assistance, please contact our team on 0345 646 0406 or fill in our online enquiry form and a member of our team will be in touch.
