Dispute resolution

Neighbour disputes

When your home becomes tainted with tension, it can be miserable. That’s often what happens when you are in disagreement with your neighbours; when the people living next door are being difficult it can feel like there’s no escape.

But that’s where our dispute resolution specialists can really help. We know how quickly small issues can escalate, and we work hard to stop that from happening. 

Part of this is pinpointing your exact legal position. If your dispute is about where the boundary between your properties lies, we’ll investigate that and advise you on what you can do to set the record straight. If your neighbour has built an extension which encroaches on your property, we’ll help enforce your rights. And if they are causing a nuisance through noise, or harassment then we will use the law to put an end to it.

The range of potential disputes is huge but the key to resolving each of them quickly is getting good legal advice as soon as you became aware of an issue. An initial meeting with one of our specialist lawyers could be all it takes to set you on the right track towards resolving the issue yourself. In more complex cases, we’ll work with you to design a strategy which gets the outcome you need. We’ll first try to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation. But we’re also skilled advocates who fight – and win – cases in the Courts if things get that far.
