Boundary Disputes & Neighbour Disputes

Boundary disputes and disputes with neighbours are often difficult to deal with – not usually because they involve large monetary value or complex issues, but because they are often fuelled by emotion and principle. Boundary issues are also often complicated by other issues, such as anti-social behaviour or privacy problems. 

Given the sensitive nature of these disputes and the fact that you likely need to continue living next to the other party for the foreseeable future, it is usually better to solve these matters without the need for court proceedings where possible. An out-of-court settlement is also normally the best option to resolve matters cost-effectively and avoid spiralling legal fees.

We can offer you a dedicated and experienced lawyer who will handle your case from start to finish. They will be your point of contact whenever you have a question or want an update and we will always do our best to be available to you whenever you need us.
