Property litigation

A property dispute, whether it be for example a tenant not paying rent, or an issue over a boundary, can be a very stressful time.

Parties may believe they have a right to do one thing because this is how it has been for years, when in fact, the title deeds state otherwise. A tenant of your property may tell you they cannot be evicted when in fact, you may have every right to evict them.

It is important from the outset that you understand what your rights are.

  • Landlord and tenant disputes
  • Possession
  • Rent arrears
  • Party Wall Act
  • Boundary Disputes
  • Rights of Way

  • Lease Renewals
  • Collective Enfranchisement
