What we do
Neighbouring landowners do not always get along. One neighbour might do something on their land that interferes with the rights of the other. Examples include the erection of a high rise office block that interferes with the neighbour's right to light, the blocking up of an access, the construction of a house in breach of a covenant or the planting of Japanese knotweed or other plants that affect the structural integrity of a neighbouring property.
Developers may have issues with utility rights, covenants, ransom strips or an application for their land to be registered as a town or village green. There may be a dispute over the interpretation of an option agreement or overage provisions.
We specialise in helping you resolve property disputes - including Land Registry adjudication, which is similar to litigation. Where possible, we promote alternative means of resolving disputes, such as mediation.
Our clients include residential property owners, landed estates, house builders, commercial developers, commercial property investors and occupiers.

Conveyancing - Chancel repair liability - the end of costly insurance policies?
For some years now, chancel repair liability has had a rather bad reputation, both with property solicitors, and with owners and buyers of land who on many occasions have to take out costly indemnity policies to protect themselves against the risk that they may be required to pay for the repair of the chancel of the parish church. However unlikely the risk may be, the somewhat notorious Wallbank1 case is not a situation which land owners want to find themselves in.
Could councils do more to save town centres?

How to end a business lease
How leases of business premises may be brought to an end depends on a number of factors. Who wants to end it; whether the lease is coming to a natural end or whether it is to be terminated early; whether the tenant is in breach, and whether the lease is a true business lease afforded the protection of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.
Judicial review changes could be harmful
