We are able to assist you in relation to various types of property dispute which you may find yourself involved in. Often such disputes are with neighbours and are an unpleasant situation for all involved.
We will advise you as to the legal situation concerning any such dispute and, if possible, it is generally best to try and resolve by way of negotiation. This is often less expensive and time consuming. However, if agreement cannot be reached then your only option may be to raise a court action. We will prepare all relevant court documents for you and ensure representation until conclusion.
The following list is an example of some of the work which we undertake regularly, but it is not an exhaustive list and you should feel free to contact us to discuss any particular situation that you are currently or potentially facing.
Boundary and Right of Access Disputes: You may have a dispute when, for example, you extend your land or wish to go across neighbouring land and face opposition to this. An examination of your Title Deeds could clarify that you can, in fact, do this and, if not, an appropriate court order can be sought.
An Interdict: which is a court order to prevent something from being done, e.g. erection of a fence or people taking access to your land when not entitled to do so.
- A Court Order for Implementation: to ensure something is done, e.g. taking down a fence or building.
- Defending Mortgage Reposessions. If your property is being repossessed by your lender contact us to see if we can help.
- An Order For Sale of jointly owned property when the owners cannot agree if it is to be sold or upon what terms. This is commonly known as an action for “Sale and Division”. Such cases often involve people who jointly own property as individuals or as part of a business.
We are pleased to discuss any such matters with you.
