Most adults in the UK either own property or aspire to own property. As a long term investment, owning property has few comparators!
Inevitably, the benefit of property ownership brings with it obligation – and sometimes burden. Disputes over property rights (whether between neighbours, joint occupiers or landlords and tenants) are common and draining in equal measure. If you are engaged in any property dispute, then Coyle White Devine can assist. David Sheahan heads up our property dispute department and routinely works for land owners, property developers, landlords, tenants and property licensees. We have clients in both the commercial and residential sectors. Property disputes are generally resolved within the context of County Court or High Court proceedings. However, dispute resolution by mediation, arbitration or through the Lands Tribunal represent a core part of our property dispute practice.
If you need assistance in resolving a dispute in any of the following areas, then please make contact with David Sheahan:
- Business lease renewals
- Rent arrears
- Breaches of covenant
- Service charge disputes
- Boundary disputes
- Disputes over right of way and rights of light
