What is a boundary dispute?” tab_id=”1620377447718-01c513a1-8e81″][vc_column_text css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22font-size%22%3A%2216px%22%7D%7D”]A boundary dispute arises when there is confusion over boundaries between property and land. Boundary disputes are often triggered by a new event such as the building of a wall or the growth of a garden over time. Sometimes, a property dispute is less about who owns a piece of land and more focused on who is responsible for maintaining it. A boundary dispute can concentrate on an individual’s right to land, as well as shared areas, trespass, use of land and right of way.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”2. How do property boundary dispute lawyers determine where a boundary lies?” tab_id=”1620377447764-7fbddfa9-1d93″][vc_column_text css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22font-size%22%3A%2216px%22%7D%7D”]Property boundary dispute lawyers will review property title deeds to determine property boundaries. In more complex cases, solicitors may rely on several other documents including, aerial photographs of the property, witness evidence and developer’s plans to paint an accurate picture of ownership. Sometimes boundary disputes are resolved on-site between solicitors representing each neighbouring party. Here, each solicitor will present their case and work to reach a fair agreement on an individual’s behalf.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”3.Why are boundary disputes so complicated?” tab_id=”1620377566174-43ccafaa-6fb3″][vc_column_text css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22font-size%22%3A%2216px%22%7D%7D”]Boundaries are often recorded generally and are, in turn, hard to establish. For example, boundaries recorded in the Land Registry aren’t an accurate depiction of land ownership and can’t be relied on in court. Two solicitors may come up with opposing ideas about where the line of ownership should be drawn. So, the most valuable skill of a property boundary dispute lawyer is the ability to mediate and communicate clearly throughout the process.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”4. What are the benefits of hiring boundary dispute lawyers?” tab_id=”1620377609716-0ebc5928-ffd2″][vc_column_text css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22font-size%22%3A%2216px%22%7D%7D”]Boundary dispute lawyers can help to diffuse the tension between you and your neighbour and avoid the matter escalating to court. In this sense, boundary dispute lawyers save you considerable time and money, helping you to reach a compromise in a shorter space of time. Most importantly, boundary dispute lawyers have the skill to determine boundaries or at the very least present a clear case supporting a suggested boundary in your favour.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][us_btn label=”Contact Us” link_type=”onclick” style=”4″ align=”center” el_class=”popmake-931″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” width=”1″ columns_gap=”0″][vc_column stretch=”1″][us_page_block id=”1236″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” content_placement=”middle” css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22background-color%22%3A%22linear-gradient%28to%20right%2C%23FFF%2050%25%2C%20%231DB055%2050%25%29%22%7D%2C%22tablets%22%3A%7B%22background-color%22%3A%22rgba%28255%2C255%2C255%2C0.00%29%22%7D%2C%22mobiles%22%3A%7B%22background-color%22%3A%22rgba%28255%2C255%2C255%2C0.00%29%22%7D%7D” el_class=”service_form”][vc_column][vc_row_inner content_placement=”middle” css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22padding-top%22%3A%2280px%22%2C%22padding-bottom%22%3A%2280px%22%7D%2C%22tablets%22%3A%7B%22padding-top%22%3A%2280px%22%2C%22padding-bottom%22%3A%2280px%22%7D%2C%22mobiles%22%3A%7B%22padding-top%22%3A%220px%22%2C%22padding-bottom%22%3A%2250px%22%7D%7D”][vc_column_inner css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22margin-left%22%3A%22auto%22%7D%7D” width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Share Your Property Problem” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22color%22%3A%22%23314455%22%2C%22font-family%22%3A%22Avenir%20Black%22%2C%22font-size%22%3A%2240px%22%7D%7D”][vc_column_text css=”%7B%22default%22%3A%7B%22color%22%3A%22%23314455%22%2C%22font-family%22%3A%22Avenir%22%2C%22font-weight%22%3A%22400%22%2C%22font-size%22%3A%2216px%22%2C%22line-height%22%3A%2224px%22%2C%22margin-bottom%22%3A%2232px%22%7D%7D”]Is your neighbour not being so neighbourly?
