Neighbourhood Disputes


It is important to have good neighbours in life so that you can engage collaboratively and constructively on mutual issues. However, sometimes it is hard to reach consensus because obligations and expectations may not be clear.

Two of the most common issues with neighbours are either about dividing fences and trees. Usually, it is possible to talk out issues and find a mutually agreeable compromise and that is the basis for most resolutions. But where this is complicated, or not possible, it can be necessary to take legal action.

The team at Maxwell & Co have experience dealing with neighbourhood disputes and we can advise you on your general rights as well as represent you in the ACAT to resolve these types of issues.
