Frequently Asked Questions

A property dispute is a conflict that can involve any form of real estate. Often where these disputes relate to residential properties they involve differences of opinion over land boundaries. Other commonly disputed subjects include rights of way or drainage, building damage, and liability for repairs to shared walls, buildings, and fences.

The most common types of property dispute include:

  • Commercial Property Disputes: These disputes involve a commercial landlord and tenant.
  • Family Property Disputes: Family property disputes often concern the breakdown in a relationship, a joint mortgage, or contested inheritance.
  • Disputes Over Construction: Poorly handled construction projects that incur unexpected costs, payments, or delays will likely result in a dispute.

The key to resolving a property dispute early is open dialogue. If you are able to put aside your differences for long enough to talk about the situation, you might be able to avoid a long-winded and expensive path towards litigation.

However, if communication between parties has broken down irretreivably, you might consider alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as mediation or arbitration. ADR will result in a binding decision that is more cost-effective than litigation. If you’ve exhausted all available alternatives, the only remaining option is to go to court.

Your rights and obligations are clearly detailed across a variety of documents related to your property. These documents may include; the tenancy agreement, lease, transfer of title, and other Land Registry documents. Your solicitor will need to refer to all of these documents to determine the validity of your case.
