Property Disputes

Disputes involving property can cause all sorts of problems such as reducing the value of your investment; they can block a sale or disrupt a business if there are access issues.

We can help you resolve:

  • Sale/purchase disputes
  • Rights of way problems
  • Covenant issues
  • Over the years, we have dealt with some unusual scenarios.

We obtained a court order to prevent someone using a right of way to cause a nuisance very close to our client’s residential property. This case was unusual because the court imposed an exclusion order around the entire property and surrounding land.

Imagine what it was like to buy your dream home only to find out a right of way ran through the garage. While we could not remove the right of way, we obtained substantial compensation from the company of unlicensed conveyancers who acted for the purchaser. We also negotiated a settlement to have the right of way diverted.

In another case, during development of offices in the centre of Birmingham a developer’s crane was swinging over another property. This trespassed on the air space belonging to the “lower property” and we obtained compensation for the trespass and agreed a payment for the use of the airspace.
