Commercial Property and Land Dispute Resolution

Our expert solicitors advise companies, partnerships, charities, social landlords and individuals on all issues relating to commercial property and land dispute resolution.  We also advise syndicates, investors, trustees and developers.

Why Lodders?

Our property dispute solicitors are specialists in the areas below; they look to understand your objectives and, where appropriate, plan a strategy to achieve those wherever possible.

Our team also provides advice so that you can seek to avoid any issue or dispute in the future.  For example, we advise developers who are considering purchasing a site, in considering with them matters such as restrictive covenants, rights of way, rights to light and boundary issues.  We advise as  to how these will impact on the proposed development and options for resolution if needed.

We adopt a practical and pragmatic approach and wish to achieve a commercial and cost-effective resolution for you.  However, where litigation is needed, we will pursue this vigorously on your behalf.  We enjoy working with your other professional advisers where appropriate.  These may include surveyors, architects, planning consultants and engineers in order to deliver a full picture service.

Our expertise extends to court proceedings, mediations, arbitrations, Land Registry adjudications, Upper Tribunal Lands Chamber (formerly Lands Tribunal) proceedings and expert determinations, including PACT.

If it would help to discuss any matter about which you are considering instructing us, please call the head of our team, Jane Senior on 01789 206149 or any member of the team listed to the right.  We would be delighted to hear from you.
