contentious matters

Disputes are best avoided. When that proves impossible, we can help you resolve contentious issues effectively, allowing you to concentrate on the real business of building houses.

We are experts in all forms of dispute resolution, from conventional litigation proceedings to adjudication and alternative methods of resolving disputes, such as mediation. Our experience covers all types of dispute including:

  • boundary issues
  • unforeseen ground conditions
  • contaminated land
  • subsidence
  • subcontractor and supplier disputes
  • quality and warranty issues

We are sensitive to the wider commercial considerations facing housebuilders and this is reflected the common sense, pragmatic approach our clients have come to rely on.

Our specialist property litigation team has a long history of successful cases including a case last year in the Court of Appeal where we helped our client successfully resist an application for permission to appeal out of time, in relation to a boundary dispute, with substantial costs sought against the other parties. We also successfully arranged for dismissal of a large dilapidation claim made in proceedings against our client with the former landlord withdrawing all claims.

In addition, our property litigation team has experience of advising both commercial and residential landlords in relation to recovery of possession, rent recovery and general advice in terms of enforcement of tenancies.
