Neighbour Disputes

One of the most distressing things that can happen to you is to fall out with your neighbour, especially over boundaries and property rights.  You cannot leave this problem behind, it is there at home with you constantly.

Our aim is to help you resolve your neighbour dispute as quickly and cost effectively as possible.  Such disputes are notorious for leading to lengthy and costly litigation, many incidents of which have been widely publicised in the media.

We can advise you as to your legal position and rights, communicate with your neighbour on your behalf and hopefully bring the matter to an end by reaching a sensible agreement.  Failing that we can litigate your case and look to assert or defend your rights before the Courts.

We offer fixed fee interviews and cost caps (you set the budget that we work within) to help you avoid the risks of a large sudden and unexpected legal bill.

In some cases you may be able to fund the case with the help of an insurance policy.  Many forms of insurance, e.g. home insurance etc carry an element of legal expenses cover.  We can check your policy to see if it has this cover.  If you are covered then the Insurer may ask you to use one of its Panel Solicitors.  However you have the right to choose your own solicitor and can insist that we represent and advise you.

If you are having any problems with a neighbour over any issues then please contact Daven Naghen for advice.
