Guide to Property Disputes

Unfortunately disputes relating to residential and commercial property can and do happen. Often they can be resolved informally but sometimes they escalate and legal support is required. When that happens it can be very stressful so it is important to know that you have the support of a professional team around you to resolve or avoid the dispute as quickly as possible, keeping the costs to a minimum.

Disputes may affect property investors, commercial and residential development companies and retail owner/occupiers as well as family businesses, charities, commercial lenders and residential property owners.

The most common property disputes arise between owners of a property, between landlord and tenant, and between neighbours.  For example:-

Landlord & Tenant (Commercial and Residential)

  • Recovery of rent arrears
  • Rent reviews
  • Repair claims
  • Service charge disputes
  • Possession proceedings
  • Renewal of business leases
  • Change of use

Neighbours/ property owners

  • Boundary disputes
  • Party wall disputes
  • Right to light
  • Rights of Way
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Trees, ditches and hedges- overhanging trees, tall hedges
  • Adverse possession- compulsory purchase notification
  • Property trespass and nuisance
  • Request by utility companies to use land
