Although most disputes with neighbours can be sorted out amicably, there are others which can’t and need some professional help with.
Neighbour disputes are actually very common and include things such as:
- Boundary disputes - if a dispute cannot be resolved after checking the property title deeds you may be able to take action
- Shared amenities - this is where there are disputes over who is responsible for the maintenance of facilities which are shared between homeowners such as driveways or fences etc
- Right of way disputes - these usually occur when one or both neighbours either have excessive use of the ‘right of way’, or fail to maintain or repair a right of way
- Trees and hedges - overhanging trees and overgrown hedges cause many issues with neighbours
We would always recommend trying to resolve issues with neighbours by speaking to them first. If in rented property, the other course of action would be to contact your landlord or local council. If a resolution cannot be agreed, then you should give us a call.
