Forbes Dispute Resolution Solicitors know that sometimes construction projects don't go to plan. There can be issues regarding getting paid if you are the contractor and if you are the client there can be issues regarding getting the right quality of materials and work in the right time frame. We advise construction companies and individuals.
We have advised in disputes relating to large residential and commercial estates and also in disputes arising from extensions, new builds and renovations. Our solicitors have expertise in the Technology and Construction section of the High Court. We have advised on JCT contracts and on verbal agreements for building work. Our Dispute Resolution Solicitors also deal with issues arising from sub contracting and in relation to procurement.
Disputes can arise when building work is carried out on a neighbouring property and Forbes Dispute Resolution team can help you to seek an injunction to stop the work or assist in resolving the problem without recourse to the Courts. We deal with boundary disputes as well as neighbour disputes and issues arising out of rights of way. We advise regarding domestic and commercial property, whether freehold or leasehold and advise regarding disputed title and adverse possession. We also deal with disputes between property co owners.
The Forbes team regularly advise landlords regarding unpaid rent or breaches of other covenants in leases, including claims in respect of dilapidations. We advise in connection with service charges and forfeiture. We act in cases arising out of the statutory protection of business tenants under the Landlord and Tenant act 1954.
Our Dispute Resolution Solicitors have also advised in some more unusual disputes regarding land such as identity fraud, the same piece of land being sold twice, the alteration of a covenant by an application to the Lands Tribunal, misrepresentation regarding a property sold by a developer and many others.

Dear Robin Thank you so much for coming to our rescue again!!

Thank you for what you have done for us, it has been a pleasure working with you - and your advice is always clear, practical and makes lots of sense.
The letter of summary has helped me to compile my defence. Without it, I would have floundered. I am very pleased with the professional service that I have received from Mohassan and Manisha.
I have to say that I've never had a better legal service from anyone and am very grateful for your actions in bringing this to a satisfactory conclusion.
