Neighbour disputes

If a neighbour is interfering with the enjoyment of your property in some way, perhaps by obstructing your right of way or encroaching on your boundary, we can assist you in resolving the problem.

Our specialist dispute resolution solicitors take time to gain a thorough understanding of your particular circumstances and the issues underlying the dispute.  We can then help you to understand your options and the likelihood of success using various approaches so that you can take an informed decision about how best to proceed.

Where possible we encourage clients to resolve disputes with neighbours by way of negotiation or mediation in order to minimise friction (you will likely remain neighbours after a dispute is resolved) and to keep costs to a minimum.  The clarity and precision of our advice will help you to be secure in the knowledge that you know your legal position so you can negotiate more firmly.

If that approach fails, we can guide you through the process of seeking an appropriate remedy from the court.  Again, we will give you sound and comprehensive advice so that you have the best available knowledge about the strength of your case before you take any formal action.

When court proceedings are necessary, we take a highly robust, no-nonsense approach on your behalf and ensure that we stand strong in gaining the best outcome possible.

Longmores’ experienced team of disputes solicitors can help you with issues such as:

  • Right of way disputes
  • Party wall disputes
  • Boundary issues
  • Noise and other nuisance problems
  • Restrictive covenant matters.


Examples of our work:

Asserting a right of way through long use over neighbouring farm land, opposing a Land Registry application by the owner to register the land without the right of way noted on the title, and ultimately negotiating a formal deed by which the right of way was granted by the owner to our clients on terms which were acceptable to both and created a constructive framework for the future.

Obtaining an injunction against neighbours who constructed an outbuilding, parts of which encroached over the boundary.  The neighbours refused to negotiate sensibly and were ordered by the court to remove the encroaching parts of the building.

Taking action against neighbours who carried out a major extension and conversion project themselves over several years in a manner which caused significant noise, vibration and dust nuisance and damage to our client’s property.
