Boundary disputes occur when two people most commonly adjoining owners believe that they both have the right to a piece of land. These disputes usually involve issues both of legal interpretation and of surveying judgement therefore in order to investigate these matters properly both legal and surveying advice is required.
If you are unaware of the exact boundary between two properties or who owns the hedge, wall, tree or fence between 2 properties then you can get an idea by looking at its title plan.
If there is any doubt, neighbouring owners can agree the precise location of their boundaries. The precise boundary can also be determined by HM Land Registry either:
- On application by the registered proprietor, or
- In the case of a transfer or lease of part, by the registrar in respect of any common boundary
