Boundary Definition and Disputes

It may be that the boundary lines on your Land Registry plan do not accurately represent the situation on the ground (unfortunately this can often happen) and disputes can arise for a number of reasons including:

  • Boundary positioning
  • Trespassing issues
  • Encroachment by trees
  • Encroachment by neighbouring structures
  • Changes agreed between neighbours but not recorded by deed and /or on the Land Registry titles
  • The lack of accurate scale measurement from Land Registry and Ordnance Survey plans
  • The Land Registry General Boundaries Rule

We can help protect your interests and provide legal clarity where boundaries lie an (if necessary) take up any issues with the neighbour or adjoining landowner; hopefully resolving it through communication, but if all else fails then we can lodge an Application to the Land Registry or the Courts as appropriate.

To discuss any issues you may be experiencing please contact a member of our team on 01204 377600. Alternatively you can send an email with your name, contact information and brief details as to the nature of your issue to disputeresolution@afglaw.co.uk and one of our team will be able to help you.
