    Types of property disputes with which we can assist

    Landlord and tenant disputes

    Landlord and tenant disputes are a common occurrence, with disputes arising over a number of matters, such as misunderstandings, property damage, missed payments, property repairs, breach of contract, etc. But litigation isn’t always necessarily needed to reach your desired outcome – a resolution can often be reached before any court proceedings are required

    Our solicitors can assist with all manner of landlord and tenant disputes, aiming to seek the outcome you desire whilst helping you to maintain your landlord-tenant relationship.

    We can help both landlords and tenants with all matters of landlord-tenant disputes.

    Disputes with builders

    We understand that a person’s home is important to them, especially when you have worked so hard to make it your home. When you trust a builder to do the work only to receive bad workmanship, it can leave you feeling unhappy, disappointed, and out of pocket.

    We will aim to resolve disputes out of court where possible, using methods such as mediation. Should the dispute lead to court, our team of property disputes solicitors are experts who will fully support you.

    We can help both individuals and builders with disputes, whether that is starting a dispute or defending or responding to a dispute.

    Boundary disputes

    Construction of a fence, wall, or building can sometimes lead to disputes between neighbours regarding property boundaries, and they often can be very expensive and stressful, especially where further conflict arises.

    Our boundary disputes solicitors can help determine the boundary line of your property, update the title deeds to reflect those boundaries, negotiate compensation and, should the dispute need to go further, we can assist in court proceedings to clarify the property boundaries.

    Service charge disputes

    Disputes over service charges often occur between tenants and landlords. These disagreements usually happen due to the tenant being unsatisfied with what they are paying in comparison to the service or work that is being carried out on the property. In some instances, it can be possible for tenants to recover the service charge that they have paid.

    Our property disputes solicitors can advise and assist tenants with the process of recovering service charges. We can also assist landlords should they receive such a claim. We will always try to resolve service charge disputes outside of court where it is possible to do so. However, if we are unable to reach an amicable resolution, our lawyers are highly experienced in court litigation.

    Restrictive covenants

    A restrictive covenant breach can be expensive and frustrating, especially if you are required to remove the structure. Sometimes the covenant is no longer necessary and can prevent you from making suitable changes to your home, which can be frustrating and time-consuming.

    Our team of restrictive covenant solicitors can help look at the property deeds for any errors that might make the covenant invalid, as well as helping to contact whoever imposed the restrictive covenant to seek planning permission. If the restrictive covenant is no longer benefiting the land, we can assist in trying to remove the covenant.

    Nuisance neighbour and anti-social behaviour disputes

    Living next to nuisance neighbours can be extremely frustrating, preventing you from being able to enjoy your home and making life really difficult, especially if their anti-social behaviour is consistent. Such anti-social behaviour issues might include noise, rubbish dumping, harassment, and intimidation.

    At Woolsey Morris & Kennedy, we recognise your exasperation and understand that an anti-social behaviour dispute with your neighbour can be challenging. We will help you contact your neighbours to seek an amicable resolution, initiate court proceedings where alternative methods have not worked and can assist in seeking eviction of nuisance neighbours.

    Our property disputes fees & funding

    Fixed fee property dispute resolution

    In some instances, where it is appropriate, we can offer a fixed fee for certain stages of the dispute resolution process. For example, for drafting a letter before action. A fixed fee provides you with cost assurance, meaning that before committing you can be certain that it is appropriate in comparison to the outcome that you are hoping to achieve.

    Hourly rates for property dispute resolution

    Where your dispute is expected to require ongoing support, we will typically charge a fixed hourly rate. This rate will be based on the level of assistance and advice that is needed for your particular property dispute. We do this to ensure that you are provided throughout with the proper support for your particular case and to give you the best chance of receiving the outcome that you desire.
