Real Estate Dispute Resolution

You wouldn’t believe the things that people can fall out about when it comes to real estate. No one wants a dispute. Our aim is to ensure that real estate disputes are avoided and that your risk is minimised wherever possible.

If a dispute cannot be avoided, we’ll work with you to resolve it practically and quickly. Our objective is to narrow down the key issues and provide you with pragmatic, cost-effective and realistic solutions.

We have recent expertise and experience in a wide range of areas including:

       Housing         Commercial        Land

  • Injunctions
  • Restraint of Behaviour
  • Access
  • Breaches of covenant
  • Boundary

  • Lease renewal
  • Trespass
  • Easements
  • Boundary disputes
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Adverse possession

As you can see, the list goes on and on, so you’ll perhaps be pleased to learn that we have experience in handling all aspects of these kinds of dispute. Of course, nobody, or just about nobody, actually wants a quarrel. Which is why we always try our best to help clients avoid them if we can. But if all else fails and the gloves do come off, we work to narrow down the key issues and provide pragmatic, cost-effective and realistic solutions that restore peace and harmony as quickly as is humanly possible.
