If you believe you’re entitled to make a claim, let’s talk.

A neighbour dispute occurs when two neighbours disagree over an issue. In the worst circumstances, this can result in harassment, threats and violence. If this is the case, you should call the police for support.

Less serious disagreements, though, can be resolved in several other ways. The simplest way is to talk to your neighbour and come to a resolution that works for both parties.

However, if this isn’t possible, you may benefit from speaking to a solicitor. An expert solicitor can advise you on your legal options and the best course of action.

What Could A Neighbour Dispute Include?

There are many different types of neighbour disputes:

  • Noise nuisance
  • Boundary disputes
  • Tree root damage, overhanging trees, and other garden issues
  • Parking and driveway issues
  • Shared facilities
  • Pets and pests
  • Invasion of privacy
  • Abusive or anti-social behaviour

If you would like some advice about any of these issues, we can help you assess whether you have a viable claim. Please give us a call on 01925 351 350 if you think you might have a claim.

Noise Nuisances

Noise nuisances or noise pollution claims are for when the level of noise created by a neighbouring property has a damaging effect on your day to day living.

To count as statutory nuisance, noise must:

  • Be unreasonably and substantially interfere with the use or enjoyment of a home or other premises
  • Injure health or be likely to injure health.

Put simply, if a noisy neighbour is preventing you from enjoying your home, or is harming you with the noise, you might be able to claim.

If you think you do have a noise nuisance claim, please call us at 01925 351 350. We can help you identify what you can claim for and how much compensation you are entitled to.

Tree Root Damage, Overhanging Trees, and Other Garden Issues

All tree owners are responsible for ensuring that their trees do not cause damage to neighbouring properties. They also have a duty to ensure that overhanging trees, or any other garden plants they are responsible for, do not stop someone from enjoying their property.

If your property has been damaged by growing tree roots, or gardening issues caused by a neighbour, you may be able to claim compensation.

If you think you might have a claim, we can help you get compensation for the damage caused. Please call us at 01925 351 350.

Abusive or Anti-Social Behaviour

Anti-social behaviour is a broad term which covers a wide range of behaviours including:

  • Threatening or intimidating actions
  • Racial or religious harassment 
  • Homophobic behaviour
  • Vandalising or graffiti
  • Animal Nuisance
  • Verbal abuse
  • Physical abuse

If you feel threatened or have been harmed by the actions of a neighbour, you should call the police. However, in cases where your neighbour’s harassment is not putting you in danger, you may wish to pursue legal action.

We can help you prevent future harassment from neighbours and claim compensation for any damages attributable to their actions.
