Boundary disputes can arise for many reasons. The main of these are,
- Building a house or bungalow extension 'on' the boundary
- Perceived boundary lines that are incorrect
- Discrepancies on title deeds between one neighbour and another
- Encroached building extensions that project further
- Loft areas that digress over from an adjoining property
- Floor levels that encroach over from an adjoining property
- Foundations that encroach onto another property - reinforced concrete restrictions and unreinforced foundations
- Building Maintenance of adjoining properties - The Neighbouring Land Act 1992
- Rights of Way - joint access and public footpaths
- Footpath closures - due to unsocial activities et al
- Cantilevered buildings and structures
- Local authority infringements - roads and buildings
- New buildings where thee is doubt that the builder has kept to the perceived building line/boundary line
- Unregistered land
- Separation of land into smaller separate segments for individual builds
- Legal Easements for service supplies - gas, electric and water
- Compulsory purchases - disagreements in boundary lines
Clients involved in boundary disputes include domestic, industrial and commercial owners. The cause of these can be the demolition of existing buildings and new boundary lines drawn to petty matters where owners have a neighbour from hell.
Therefore disputes can be diverse and at times complex.
