“For most of us, our property is our most valuable asset, and it needs protection from damage, incursion and legal challenges.
“Wherever possible, at BLB we look to settle property disputes amicably through dialogue or mediation. Sometimes, however, there’s no option but to take the matter to court or tribunal. Should that become necessary, we will fight your corner robustly.”

Property Dispute Solicitors
You must know you can protect your property from legal challenges while maintaining and enhancing its value.
Our team has considerable experience in all types of residential property disputes. And we understand you will achieve the best possible outcome by receiving clear, practical legal advice from the outset.
Common types of disputes we encounter include:
- Adverse possession
- Boundary disputes
- Easements, access and rights of way
- Restrictive covenants
- Property misrepresentation claims
- TOLATA claims
We see the bigger picture
However, we also appreciate that property disputes can prove damaging, even after they settle. A return to good neighbourly relations is unlikely, at least until one party moves away. But therein lies another problem, you must disclose the dispute to a potential purchaser. If you fail to do so, you may face a compensation claim for misrepresentation.
With that in mind, we always recommend a cautious approach initially, seeking dialogue or mediation with your neighbour, if appropriate. However, we will fight your corner in court or tribunal if that fails to resolve the matter.
In addition, we are conscious that legal costs are a significant consideration in any dispute. And the longer it continues, the greater the cost. Negotiation, mediation or other means of alternative dispute resolution are invariably less costly than taking your claim to court or tribunal.
But our transparent pricing policy will help you plan and budget whatever route your dispute takes. As soon as we know the issues and the outcome sought, we will advise you fully on the likely costs involved, together with additional cost projections should there be any unexpected complications.
