Property disputes can easily arise in real estate, often leading to complex legal battles that are both emotionally and financially draining. At Midwinters, we have decades of experience dealing with property disputes. We understand the intricacies and are here to provide guidance and resolution at a reasonable cost. Let’s explore some of the common types of property disputes and the advantages of enlisting the expertise of our property dispute lawyers.

Boundary Disputes:

One of the most prevalent property disputes arises from disagreements over property boundaries. These disputes can stem from various technical, legal, and physical issues, such as changes in property ownership, lack of evidence regarding boundaries, discrepancies in mapping methods, and disputes over features like fencing and rights of way.

Co-Habitee Disputes:

This is another common form of property dispute. It is not uncommon for a couple’s home to be registered at the Land Registry in the name of one person. However, the other person may have invested a considerable sum of money and/or time in the property, perhaps as a contribution to the purchase price, improvements, or mortgage payments.

Another scenario is a family member making significant financial contributions to live in the same house as their relatives with the expectation that it will be their home, only to find they are being asked to leave without any return of their investment or acknowledgment of their share of the house.

Inheritance Disputes:

Inherited property disputes can be emotionally charged, especially when family members contest the distribution of assets. Whether it involves disputes over intestate estates, exclusion from a will, or disagreements over property sales, our lawyers can provide compassionate and strategic guidance to achieve a resolution.

Landlord-Tenant Disputes especially in relation to dilapidations:

Rental agreements and property maintenance issues often lead to conflicts between landlords and tenants. Whether it’s disputes over lease terms, property upkeep, or rent payments, our property dispute lawyers can provide sound legal counsel to resolve these matters effectively.
