Land & Boundary Disputes
Residential Boundary Disputes
Land and boundary disputes can arise for a number of reasons, and when they do, it can be extremely stressful for the residential property owners involved. There are several reasons why a dispute over a boundary might occur, most commonly due to:
- Disputes over changes to party walls
- Disputes over repairs
- Disputes over land access
- Objections to property extensions
- Hedges or Trees that are growing onto another’s property
- Encroaching or crossing over the boundary line
If you are involved in a dispute over land or property boundaries, you should get expert advice from a boundary dispute solicitor who can review the case and assess the best possible cause of action, working with you to solve the dispute as quickly and as amicably as possible with any other party involved.
Resolving Boundary Disputes
A title plan for every registered property is held with HM Land Registry, which will show where the general boundaries of the property are marked. You can get a copy of this from HM Land Registry. Whilst an initial title check with the HM Land Registry can solve simple boundary disputes in some cases, it unfortunately can be more complex when the registered documents are unable to show a precise record of a boundary. In this case, it would require you to reach a boundary agreement separately with your neighbour or have the boundary determined for you by an independent expert.
