A boundary dispute is a dispute between the owners or occupiers of at least two neighbouring properties or pieces of land. The most common form of a despite relates to the position of a boundary, often with it being argued that a physical feature (such as a wall, fence or hedge) is in the incorrect position, or dispute over which feature defines the boundary (such as a hedge and ditch). The process and timescales of a boundary dispute are influenced by their complexity, the available information relating to the boundary (such as deeds, photographs and plans), and the willingness of each owner to seek a resolution.
Our team are experienced in assisting clients with boundary disputes, with many cases being resolved amicably without the need for professional mediation or court proceedings. However, not all disputes can be resolved in this way and we have acted as court appointed experts to provide detailed knowledge and insight on such cases.
