Property and Boundary Disputes

Are you in a dispute relating to your property or boundary?

Perhaps a new wall or fence has been put up and you are now embroiled in a discussion as to whether it has been erected in the wrong place?

Or maybe there is an unpleasant situation that has arisen because there is a fence that needs fixing or a tree that someone wants to chop down?

Are you concerned about a change your neighbour is making that will block out your light?

Disagreements with neighbours regarding properties and boundaries can often be unpleasant and at BTTJ we understand how quickly they can get out of hand.

You may be frustrated with your neighbour over their actions and feel that you need legal clarity on what your position is and what can be done.


Our specialist team will be able to offer advice in respect to a wide range of property and boundary disputes.

These commonly include:

  • Boundaries
  • Right of way
  • Maintenance of trees, fences, walls and hedges and overhanging trees and hedges
  • High hedges and trees causing lack of light
  • Breach of covenant
  • Party wall disputes
  • Nuisance neighbours
  • House extensions
  • Access to neighbouring land
  • Location of pipes and drains
  • Maintenance and repairs
  • Planning permission
  • Trespassing


Being specialists in this field, we will be able to understand your exact circumstances and offer practical solutions to deliver you the best outcome.

Boundary disputes for example are very common and you may find that the boundary can be different to how it appears on a plan recorded at the land registry or that the boundary over time has moved.  Our specialists will be able to offer guidance and legal clarity on this.


In all cases, we will be able to give you advice on the costs that may be incurred to pursue or defend a claim as well as guiding you on your options available and the time involved.
