Neighbour Disputes

Neighbour disputes can be one of the most common forms of residential property dispute and one of the most stressful for the individuals involved. They can involve anything including noise, rights of access, and anti-social behaviour. Since neighbours generally have to continue living alongside one another, and such disputes have to be disclosed on a subsequent sale, they need to be handled sensitively.

We have a vast amount of experience advising clients in relation to these types of disputes and always seek to resolve them quickly and cost-effectively. We always take care to maintain your relationship with your neighbour as much as possible in the circumstances.
