Boundary disagreements with neighbours can arise for a variety of reasons and can cause significant stress and frustration for property owners. If you find yourself in a boundary dispute, it is important to seek expert guidance to help resolve the issue.



 In this article, we will explore how Faulkners can help you find a solution to your boundary disagreement.

Understanding Boundary Disputes

Boundary disputes can arise when there is a disagreement between neighbours over a shared boundary line or structure. Some common types of boundary disputes include:
  • Unclear boundary lines due to poor documentation or changes to the property over time
  • Disputes over access rights to shared driveways or pathways
  • Disputes over maintenance responsibilities for shared fences, walls or hedges

Finding a Resolution

Resolving a boundary dispute can be a complex process, but it is important to find a solution before the dispute escalates. Some possible ways to resolve a dispute include:
  • Negotiation: This involves discussing the issue with the other party and trying to come to a mutually acceptable agreement.
  • Mediation: This involves engaging a neutral third-party mediator to facilitate a discussion between the parties and help them find a resolution.
  • Legal action: If negotiations or mediation fail, legal action may be necessary to resolve the dispute. This can involve going to court or engaging in an arbitration process.
