Boundary disputes can arise when there is a disagreement between property owners over the location of their property lines or the use of land. These disputes can be complex and emotional, and they can lead to lengthy legal battles if not handled correctly. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the common causes of boundary disputes, the legal framework for resolving them, and how Faulkners can help you resolve your dispute.



Boundary disputes can arise from various reasons, such as:
  • Unclear or outdated property boundaries
  • Disputes over the use of shared spaces or facilities, such as driveways or fences
  • Unauthorized changes to the property, such as building a fence or constructing a structure on the boundary line
  • Disputes over the ownership of trees or other vegetation on the boundary line

What is a Party Wall Agreement?

Boundary disputes are typically resolved through legal means, such as mediation or court proceedings. The legal framework for resolving boundary disputes includes:
  • The Land Registration Act 2002: This act governs the registration and transfer of property and can help determine property ownership.
  • The Party Wall Act 1996: This act outlines the requirements for building works that affect shared walls or structures between properties.
  • Common law: This refers to the legal principles that have developed through case law and can be used to interpret property boundaries and rights.
