How are Property Disputes Typically Resolved?

Property disputes are commonly resolved through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. If these strategies are unsuccessful in resolving the matter, the dispute may progress to litigation within the courts.

Can I Sell My Property if I’m Currently in the Middle of an Ongoing Dispute?

Yes. However, it’s a legal requirement to declare any disputes when selling a house. Failure to declare a dispute when selling a property could result in legal repercussions, such as accusations of mis-selling.

What are Some Examples of a Property Dispute?

Property disputes can be wide-ranging and multifarious, but they commonly arise out of disputes concerning rightful ownership, zoning issues, or situations where the activities of one property affect another.

Examples of such instances include:

  • Disputed boundary lines
  • Use of a shared driveway
  • Installation of a tree or structure that blocks sunlight to a neighbouring house
  • Repossession of a property
  • Trespass
