Commercial Property Disputes

Experts in commercial property disputes

At Hart Brown, we know that commercial property disputes are never easy. If you end up in a dispute about your commercial property not only can it seriously affect your business but it may also affect the price when you come to sell it. Our experienced property litigation solicitors can help to advise on the following disputes.

  • Boundary disputes with a neighbour
  • Disagreements over a right of way or easement
  • Trespass on your land
  • A party wall dispute under the Party Wall Act 1996

As these may all involve complicated issues of fact and law you need to get advice from expert property litigation solicitors who are experienced in dealing with commercial property disputes.

Our specialist property litigation solicitors will take the time to understand the full history of the dispute. They will usually arrange a site visit before going through your options with you with the aim of finding the most cost effective solution. In particular, we will discuss with you at an early stage other ways of resolving the dispute without going to court, for example mediation or a ‘joint settlement meeting’.

We have contacts with a number of other property professionals so if we need to involve an expert witness, such as a surveyor or planning expert, we will be able to put you in touch with the right person.
