A boundary dispute can arise when one neighbour has advanced onto another party’s property, this could be deliberately or without knowing.  The cause of this could be anything from residential extension to tree hedges, plants or even plant tubs.

Boundary disputes can escalate extremely quickly so it is advised that you seek legal advice from an expert property solicitor to minimise costs as soon as possible.

When it comes to party walls, the relevant legislation is the Party Wall Etc. Act 1996. If work needs to be carried out close to a party wall, it will usually be necessary to instruct a party wall surveyor, and a party wall notice will need to be served on the owner of the other property. Most issues can be resolved through communication, however major disputes can arise and are often linked to rules and procedures not being properly observed.

Ackroyd Legal operate a network of independent party wall specialist surveyors that can help.

A property may have a right of light, often simply via the windows. If a new development threatens to block out the light to another property, this could amount to a breach of this right. The right of light is usually established by prescription when it is shown that the light has already been enjoyed for a period of at least 20 years.

Ackroyd Legal is a leading London Law firm, offering a wide range of legal services. Our specialist property law solicitors can provide sound advice on all aspects of the right of light. Whether you are concerned about facing a possible action for breaching the right of light of a neighbour, or if the right of light to your own home has been infringed, we can help you.

If the right of light is established and a breach is found to have occurred, it may be possible for the claimant to apply for an injunction, and financial compensation, known as damages, may also be awarded.

Development in London is continuous, and as such, developers sometimes approach the owners of neighbouring properties when an infringement is foreseeable, in order to offer them a settlement in advance of any future claims, usually involving financial compensation for the infringement as well as all related costs.

If you have been approached by a developer about releasing the right of light, or if you need advice on any aspect of the establishment, infringement or defence of the right of light relating to any property, please contact us. A member of our specialist property team will be very happy to help you.

Whatever the situation, we have the skills and expertise to advise and support clients towards reaching a resolution, and to provide unwavering representation when it does become necessary to bring the matter before the court. Whatever the situation or the nature of the property dispute, we can help you.
