Are you having a dispute with a neighbour about a boundary to your property?
Did you know that land title maps do not always correlate with what is on the ground and therefore this can give rise to arguments about who owns what? Not only can this cause boundary disputes but also it can be expensive to resolve without the correct advice from the outset.
‘Many sincere thanks for your help and support. I came away from your office feeling better as you gave me some valuable information.’
How to avoid a boundary dispute
The best way to avoid any disputes in the future is to have a clearly defined boundary which is reflected accurately on any title maps. When you are buying or selling a property it is important for you to check to make sure that what is on the map reflects what is on the ground.
If you want to make changes to your property it is wise to establish where the boundaries are first. Even if you think that the work involved will not change anything it can lead to disputes if the boundary is unclear.
If you are unsure you should seek legal advice before making any changes.
Also, it is sometimes wise to discuss any potential issues with your neighbours before any works are carried out. This may avoid any disputes in the future.
What if I have a boundary dispute?
If you are already in a boundary dispute, then you will probably need to seek advice. We would suggest that you come and see us to discuss it. Our dispute resolution solicitors can assist you from the outset and give you guidance on how best to proceed.
We will probably have to review the title documents and also may have to get a surveyor involved to determine the exact boundary.
