Our real estate litigation solicitors specialise in a range of residential and commercial property disputes. Our practice areas include:
A right of light is an easement to enjoy the natural light that passes over someone else’s land and then enters your building.
Rights of way are a form of legal permission to pass through property that is not one’s own, whether on public or private land.
Boundary disputes are uncertain and complex matters because the parties get emotionally involved, making settlement more difficult.
We act for freeholders, intermediate landlords with head leases and management companies whose tenants are in breach of lease.
A party wall is a wall that is common between two adjoining buildings. Disputes can arise when one party undertakes works on this dividing wall.
Squatting, also known as ‘adverse possession’, is when unwanted occupants enter a property without permission in order to live there.
Fraudsters target properties, effectively stealing your home by taking the legal title, pretending to be you and selling or mortgaging it.
If the Land Registry makes a mistake which adversely affects the title of a registered owner, the owner can apply to rectify the mistake.
We have expertise in reviewing the rent payable under the terms of a residential or commercial lease, which may change over time.
The Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 lays out the criteria for the statutory right to a commercial lease renewal, on which we can advise.
Estate agents are regulated under the Estate Agents Act 1979, which also sets out the duties owed to buyer and seller clients.
Commercial or terminal dilapidations refer to items of disrepair covered by repairing covenants contained in the lease.
