Common issues relating to boundary disputes
Boundary and land disputes can arise for a number of reasons, including:
- Discrepancies with HM Land Registry and documentation held by them
- Ambiguous location of boundaries
- Planned construction or alterations to existing buildings
- Encroaching buildings or garden features
- Failure to recognise previous boundary agreements
- Changes over time to natural boundaries
There’s also a tendency among homeowners to think that land boundaries fall on a straight line directly between two properties. This isn’t always the case; boundaries often shift over time as a result of agreements between previous owners or property developers.
