Boundaries, Easements and Neighbour Disputes
Members of Chambers advise and appear in numerous claims concerning arguments over boundaries, from cases in which the area in dispute is a matter of a few metres square to wider claims involving possessory title, estoppel and other issues.
Chambers also offers expertise in law of easements, and can assist in both advising whether an easement has arisen and drafting claims for the recognition of such rights or defending property owners subject to such assertions.
The team has substantial experience in addressing all types of neighbour dispute, including trespass, nuisance and harassment claims and even arguments about hedges. Barristers work on behalf of numerous local authorities, housing associations, property management companies and other entities enforcing property obligations. They also represent occupiers, tenants and property owners who face claims against them for breach of tenancy or other allegations or who wish to enforce their contractual and other rights. They also address statutory nuisance issues and local authority-related disputes.
Cases involving damage by tree roots and subsidence also give rise to litigation and Chambers has long-standing experience in both bringing in defending such claims and in resolving them through alternative dispute resolution.
