Boundary Disputes

Boundary disputes arise when the boundary of a property is unclear or is brought into question.

In practice the boundary of your property is a very significant aspect, as it may impact upon the value of the property or land as well as how it may be used. When boundary disputes arise, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible, in order to protect your rights and preserve the value of the land or property involved.

Practical and Firm Representation

The property law specialists at Ackroyd Legal have diverse experience in dealing with boundary disputes and fully understand how stressful an ongoing dispute with the owners of a neighbouring property can quickly become for you and your family. We will provide practical advice and firm representation with the aim of resolving the dispute as swiftly and cost-effectively as possible.

There are a number of situations that can suddenly and quite unexpectedly give rise to a boundary dispute, including:

Defining the Boundary

When a boundary dispute arises, the boundary lines may not always be clearly defined, for example the land registry plan will not necessarily be a definitive guide to the boundary lines relating to your land or property.

This is because there are a number of aspects that can affect where the boundary lies, including agreements or implied agreements that may have developed over time.

Often encroachment may happen slowly, without either party initially realising what is actually occurring. In seeking to resolve the boundary dispute, your solicitor will look in detail at the history of the properties involved.

We will then advise you upon your position and your legal rights in order to determine the best course of action in the circumstances.
