Boundary Disputes

Boundary disputes with a neighbour can be stressful and time consuming. Unfortunately, they can also be unavoidable. In the Fosters Litigation and Dispute Resolution team we recognise that boundary disputes feel personal and urgent, and can directly affect your quality of life, and need sorting urgently. As an experienced team, dedicated to finding cost-effective solutions, we are committed to providing support when you need it most.

We assist with a wide variety of boundary disputes including:

  • Challenges to the position of boundary features, such as fences, walls, hedge growth and so on;
  • Allegations that adjacent owners have built unlawfully on neighbouring land;
  • Disagreements over rights of way, for example connected to shared access routes and access to land;
  • Neighbours failing to maintain boundaries;
  • Party Wall Act disputes.

Where appropriate we explore alternative means of dispute resolution (ADR) at the outset. If mediation offers the best chance of achieving a successful resolution, we refer clients to trusted, accredited mediators.

We provide costs information up front and will assist you in looking at different funding options including the availability of legal expenses insurance (LEI).

Initial Consultation

We offer initial consultations to new clients at significantly reduced rates. We follow up on face to face advice in writing. Our aim is to give you the perspective you need to make an informed decision about how to move forward. We are happy to have an initial phone discussion (without obligation on you) to ascertain how best we can assist.

What we offer

Our experienced and skilled litigators will support and guide you through the dispute resolution process in a professional manner. We focus on resolving disputes quickly and proportionately without the need to resort to the expense of litigation if it can be avoided. If a court ordered remedy is the only realistic solution, we will ensure you get the advice and assistance you need.

We will listen to you and work out what you want to achieve. We aim to deliver your objective in a way you understand, one that offers commercial value and that will allow you to move on.

We represent clients in a variety of matters using carefully selected barristers and a range of trusted experts to assist in case investigation.
