Boundary disputes can arise in a number of different ways and over the smallest of strips of land.
The boundaries of land are general boundaries only and reference must be made to the deeds in the first instance, with consideration then of whether the boundaries have been altered over the years by adverse possession.
Often the plans attached to deeds will show a different position to that on the ground and neighbouring landowners will need to resolve who is the title owner of which parcel.
There are presumptions in relation to boundaries which include the presumption that where properties are divided by a track, whether public or private, or a stream, the boundary is the centre line of the stream or track.
Our expert team act on behalf of a number of property and landowners either making an application for rectification of the paper title or defending such application. We also deal with disputes between landowners under the Party Wall Act.
