‘For a man’s house is his castle’
– Sir Edward Coke: The Institute of the Laws of England, 1628
This maxim is used, sometimes inaccurately, when talking about a person’s right to do as he or she chooses within his or her own home. It is also often applied when someone wishes to ensure that there is no encroachment over the boundaries of, or right of way to, their property.
It can be very distressing to find yourself embroiled in an argument of any kind, especially with a neighbour. Because of this, you will often require professional legal advice. This is where we can help you.
We believe that it is important for our clients to feel that their individual needs are being understood and we will always act robustly, but with sensitivity, in your best interests. We have many years’ experience in dealing with property and boundary disputes. Our aim is to settle matters on your behalf in the most advantageous and cost effective way. This occasionally means that a court hearing is unavoidable, but more often than not disputes can be resolved through mediation or other out-of-court settlements.
We offer a free initial interview with you to explore the merits of your claim. Please call us for an initial telephone discussion and we will advise you on the best course of action and the range of costing options available.
