Our property dispute resolution services

Our dispute resolution team help clients across the South West and the wider UK to find fast, effective solutions to a wide range of property issues and conflicts.

Landlord & tenant disputes

Both landlords and their tenants rely on having a good relationship with each other. For the landlord, this means they can see a good return on their investment with minimal hassle. For tenants, it means they can feel comfortable occupying the property with confidence.

Where issues arise, the right legal advice at an early stage can prevent the conflict from escalating and allow both parties to get back to a positive relationship as soon as possible.

Our team can help with all types of landlord-tenant disputes, including over issues such as rent arrears, dilapidation and eviction, helping to get things back on track.

Neighbour disputes

Where a dispute involves your neighbours, it has the potential to make life very difficult if not handled the right way and swiftly.

Whether you are in dispute over a property boundary, right of way, proposed extension or any other bone of contention between you and a neighbour, our team can help.

Our friendly, non-confrontational approach is ideal for neighbour disputes as it can help prevent unnecessary conflict and allow you to maintain a good relationship or repair a damaged relationship, making it easier to continue living alongside each other.

Planning disputes

Planning is a complex and sometimes opaque process, meaning it can often be a challenge to get your plans approved. Alternatively, you might have an issue with a planning application submitted by a neighbour and need help challenging the application.

Our dispute resolution team have extensive experience with a wide range of planning disputes, giving us a strong understanding of the rules and where there is room for leeway or to make a successful challenge.

Property occupation disputes

If you are a landlord who needs to evict sitting tenants or own a property that has been occupied by squatters, being able to regain vacant possession of your property can be a challenge.

Our team are highly experienced in these matters, so can help you find the fastest, most effective way to deal with any occupation disputes, while ensuring you stay entirely within the law and avoid the risk of future legal challenges.
