These types of disputes could involve anything from property boundary disputes to ongoing noise complaints or any other neighbour issues which have been complained about in writing, or which agencies and authorities like the local council or police force have been involved with.

The buyer may be able to make a claim for property misrepresentation. Call our specialist team for more information and to find out if you can make a claim on 0161 696 6178.
