Additional Information

What happens in property litigation?

In property litigation, parties seek legal resolution for property-related disputes, such as boundary issues, lease agreements, break notices or eviction matters. Solicitors provide expert advice, negotiate settlements, or represent clients in court to secure the most favourable outcome. The process may involve arbitration, mediation, or court proceedings.

What are the areas of property litigation?

Property litigation covers a broad range of issues, including but not limited to:

  • Boundary Disputes: Concerns over the demarcation lines between properties.

  • Lease Disputes: Issues arising from commercial or residential leases, such as rent arrears, service charge disputes, dilapidations or breaches of covenant.

  • Possession and Eviction Proceedings: Legal actions to regain possession of a property from tenants or squatters.

  • Easements and Rights of Way: Issues concerning the legal right to access or use another person's land for a specific purpose.

  • Land Registration: Conflicts arising from the recording of property ownership and interests.

  • Adverse possession claims both making and defending applications;

  • Nuisance Claims: Legal actions taken regarding disturbances such as noise, smells, or encroachments.

  • Dilapidation Claims: Concerns related to the condition of a property at the end of a lease term. Enfranchisement: Legal processes related to extending a lease or purchasing the freehold of a property.

  • Restrictive Covenants: Disputes concerning conditions imposed on the use of land. Trespass: Unauthorised entry or occupation of land or property.

  • Landlord and Tenant Disputes: General conflicts between landlords and tenants that may not fall under specific categories like eviction or lease disputes.

  • Property Fraud: Legal issues arising from fraudulent activities related to property transactions.

  • Conveyancing Disputes: Issues arising from the sale or purchase of property, such as contract breaches or disputes over property value

    Each of these areas involves complex legislation and often requires specialised legal advice to navigate effectively.
