Boundary Disputes

The Lea Hough building surveying team regularly receive instructions from solicitors and private individuals to attend land and properties, to determine the position of the boundary line where it is in dispute.

Our Chartered Surveyors will act impartially in identifying boundary positions. Typically our role will involve reviewing available documents and title plans, visiting the plot to take measurements and assess site features, and preparing an impartial Surveyor’s Report with plan drawing to establish the location of the boundary.

We can accept single instructions on behalf of one party in the dispute, or jointly instructed appointments.

Our reports can take the form of an Expert Surveyor’s Report, addressed to the Court for litigation proceedings, if required. We will act with reference to the current RICS Practice Note and Civil Procedure Rules.

Additionally, Lea Hough also regularly prepare detailed Boundary Plans, Deed Plans and Land Transfer Plans, compliant with Land Registry requirements, on behalf of Conveyancing Solicitors and purchasers of property and land, for the purposes of registering property/land with the Land Registry.

"I have read your report again and I appreciate the level of detail and the effort you have gone to in surveying the property - thank you. You’re looking at properties every day and you know what you’re looking for – so you’ve seen things that I would never have spotted. You have opened my eyes on numerous defects on this property and am seriously thinking about leaving the idea of buying. The report was money wells spent!"
