Watch now: Dispute Resolution’s Boundary Disputes webinar

In the first in a series of informative webinars for commercial and residential landlords and tenants, Lodders’ dispute resolution experts Jane Senior, Vicky Khandker, and Ellie Crofts discuss the different methods available to resolve boundary disputes and issues.

The webinar outlines a general overview on how to approach boundary disputes, which are notoriously time-consuming and costly.

Our speakers discuss the initial considerations of evidence, common practical and legal issues, and how boundary disputes can be resolved.

You can watch the webinar in full below, it has a running time of around 45 minutes, including an informative Q&A.

Residential and commercial disputes

Jane Senior notes there is generally quite a difference between residential and commercial boundary disputes, and that they are therefore treated differently by the Courts.

Jane highlights this with a case study, and some rules of thumb when it comes to property boundaries, suggesting every effort should be made to settle boundary disputes at the early stages.

Options for resolving boundary disputes

Our second speaker, Ellie Crofts, then considers alternative options for resolution, which do not involve formal court proceedings.

Ellie notes that ideally court proceedings are a last resort, and the Court generally expects that parties to litigation to have explored these alternative methods. Parties who refuse alternative dispute resolution (ADR) can be penalised, and in some instances, court proceedings are suspended until ADR has been fully considered.

The property boundaries resolution of disputes bill

Lastly, Vicky Khandker explains a boundary disputes bill has been presented to parliament. The bill proposes a notice system, which provides for surveyors to determine the position of a boundary and make an award. If this award is not appealed, it can be presented to the land registry. Vicky explains, however, that the bill is not without its issues.

Q&A

The session rounds off with a short Q&A session, chaired by Vicky, which covers topics such as how to remedy mistakes made by the land registry.
