Fence dispute solicitors

There is no legal obligation for people to fence their land. However, most properties now mark their boundaries with fences. It may be the case that a boundary dispute arises due to fencing. For fence disputes, contact our team for a hassle free solution on 0203 816 9314 or complete our enquiry form.

For example, your neighbour might replace the old fence between your properties with a new one, but in doing so encroaches on your land slightly. It is not necessarily the case that the original fence marked the boundary, and you may need professional help to establish whether the new fence line is in fact encroaching on your land.

Why might a dispute arise?

The dispute may relate to the nature of the fence itself. Your neighbour may have erected a new fence which is much higher than before, blocking some of the natural light into your garden, or perhaps his new fence is unsightly. We can help determine whether the new fence is in breach of local regulations or a previous agreement with regard to fences that binds both landowners.

If the fences around your property or on your neighbour’s property are falling into disrepair, you may want to know whose responsibility it is to maintain them. If your neighbour is responsible for the fence between your properties, we can help compel the exercise of that duty and save you spending time and money on a job that isn’t your responsibility.

Resolving fence and boundary disputes

I recently acted for clients who were forced into a boundary dispute instigated by new neighbours. The neighbours believed that a fence separating the properties was not in the correct position and sought a declaration from the court on the true position...
