Property Disputes

Property disputes of all types can and do arise. If this happens to you, you’ll need to know that your legal team understands your business and what’s most important to you. Our priority is always to give you commercial and pragmatic advice, explain the options available to you and ultimately, help you find the solution that best fits your needs.

Our clients include property investors, commercial and residential development companies and retail owner/occupiers as well as landed estates, family businesses, charities and commercial lenders. We provide advice on commercial leasing, landownership disputes (including title and registration issues), planning appeals and agricultural disputes.

We can help you with:

  • Recovery of rent and service charge
  • Irritancy of leases
  • Dilapidations claims
  • Interpretation of leases
  • Removal of unauthorised occupiers
  • Title rectification
  • Applications to the Land Court
  • Boundary disputes
  • Missive and title problems
  • Private and social housing
  • Planning appeals
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Applications to the Lands Tribunal

Our property dispute team collaborate closely with our colleagues in the commercial property team. This means that if property disputes do arise we are often already familiar with the background and are able to give commercial advice on the options available. We will consider with you whether alternative dispute resolution, through mediation or arbitration, may be appropriate. Where court action is necessary we understand the importance of guiding clients through the process step by step and ensuring that everything is thoroughly prepared. Our primary goal is to help our clients to resolve the dispute, using the negotiation and litigation skills in which we have extensive experience.
