Boundary disputes are expensive, complicated and very stressful, as usually they involve neighbours, who unfortunately you will live next to whilst any dispute arises and continues, which can make your home life stressful, as home is the place we all want to and need to relax.
Boundary disputes, typically arise when there is a dispute or confusion over exactly where the line of the boundary lies between adjacent properties or land. For example where a boundary between properties differs from those described in the title documents or lease, or where a boundary has been changed by agreement or by encroachment (occupation without permission), or where it is alleged that the boundary has been encroached upon, simply by accident, on purpose or just following what the previous owners always did.
Although there are several myths and misconceptions regarding the line of a boundary between properties.
If a dispute arises between neighbours and landowners about the boundary between their properties or land. It will be necessary to establish who owns the disputed land, equally if you try to sell the property whilst a dispute is on going, and if it is in full flow, by law you will have to disclose this.
Boundary disputes are too expensive to fight in Court, the court, solicitors and experts fees, never mind the cost you may incur if you lose at court / trial, which will mean that you will not only have to pay your own legal costs, but a high proportion of the other sides legal costs also, as well as put right any damage you have caused to the other parties, land, property.
