With the value of land, particularly in city centres, so high and the ensuing need to maximise developments, it is not surprising that disputes can occur, often over the smallest difference as to the exact position of a boundary.
In residential situations, disputes can occur over the position of hedges, open plan estates with restrictive covenants that prevent the erection of fences, or new neighbours with plans for extensions.
In order to establish the truth our surveyors will look at all deeds, covenants, plans and other documentation; then inspect the site, measure it as necessary, and also check on Land Registry Certification. If this proves insufficient to settle a dispute we often appear as Expert Witnesses in Court.
