No one wants to get involved in a long and expensive title dispute.
Sometimes common sense goes out the window and where horns are locked it’s difficult to disentangle them.
Boundary disputes and encroachment can occur with relative frequency in country areas. Sometimes boundaries are ill defined and land has been occupied beyond what is known as the legal extent of the title.
In a sale transaction this may show up in the searches and most cases it can be resolved. It is rare that a title issue is insurmountable and results in a sale falling through. However, it is helpful to seek advice and get things straight at the start. This can avoid expense and frustration further down the road.
As property solicitors we look for solutions and often find a way of resolving the issue without making a fuss.
