Neighbour disputes can be caused by a wide range of issues, with some of the most common being:
Noisy neighbours can make your home life a living nightmare. Relentless loud music, late-night parties, shouting and arguing can render ordinary tasks like watching television or working from home impossible. The noise made by inconsiderate neighbours can disrupt sleep, upset young children and ultimately lead to severe issues such as stress and anxiety. Luckily, there are legal remedies available to help. Our solicitors for neighbour disputes will assess the problems you are facing and advise on the most suitable way to address them before acting decisively on your behalf to resolve the problem, allowing you to resume a peaceful, enjoyable home life.
Party Wall Act Disputes
Party walls are erected on land shared by two or more homeowners and usually form part of a building or stand in a garden. Walls separating terraced or semi-detached houses, for example, are party walls. The Party Wall Act operates to permit the owners of properties impacted by party walls to carry out specified works whilst protecting the interests and safety of neighbouring landowners. The Act sets out various steps which must be followed before any such works are undertaken and provides redress for property owners negatively affected by them. It is crucial to take advice from solicitors for neighbour disputes prior to commencing any works which may fall under the remit of the Party Wall Act or seek timely advice if you believe you have been negatively impacted by such works.
Nuisance Trees, Hedges And Other Plants
Issues arising from trees, hedges and other plants are some of the main causes of neighbour disputes. Disagreements can arise over who is responsible for their maintenance, their branches or foliage might block light to your home, or tree roots may cause subsidence or structural damage to your property. The law recognises the damage these apparently innocuous structures can cause and provides redress in certain circumstances. Our solicitors for neighbour disputes have extensive experience in such issues and will provide straightforward, concise advice and resolve the problem as swiftly as possible.
Boundary disputes are a frequent occurrence that often arise when a property owner constructs a partition – a fence or wall, for example – that the owner of a neighbouring property believes encroaches on their land. Boundary disputes tend to be hard-fought, emotive and sometimes lead to spiralling costs disproportionate to the issues involved. Our solicitors for neighbour disputes strive to avoid this by taking a common-sense approach to the issue and acting quickly and purposefully to protect your interests in the most cost-effective manner.
