Rights of Way and Easements

As London and surrounding counties like Hertfordshire are becoming more densely populated, it is increasingly common for neighbours to have rights of way over each other’s land.

This may be in order to allow for general access or to carry out renovations, or a covenant on your neighbour’s land may stop development which restricts light onto your property. These rights of way can be granted in a number of ways, and it is not uncommon for neighbours to forget about rights which were established generations ago.

If you feel that your neighbours are not allowing you to exercise your rights of way over their land, disagreements can quickly escalate. However, they are easily resolved by reviewing the relevant documents to establish what rights of way exist over the property, and our dispute team is experienced in helping clients resolve these issues quickly and without damaging the personal relationship between neighbours.



What our clients say

  • "No improvement to service needed. Alison was the epitome of professional calm in going over options and maintaining patience, and indeed advised against a path that certainly would have achieved higher fees for her, but the correct call in retrospect. So I feel her advice was professional and unbiased. She was attentive in keeping me appraised of news, and maintained a polite and stress free approach which kept me calm and optimistic a final result in my favour would occur. Would recommend her, and the firm, to others." Anon
