Dispute Resolution

As part of our daily life we enter into contracts for all sorts of goods or services from houses to consumer goods. Unfortunately sometimes these transactions can go wrong which can result in a legal dispute which may cause distress as well as financial loss.

The legal system provides a necessary structure for the resolution of many disputes and our specialist dispute solicitors serving North Devon and Torridge have vast experience in resolving a variety of contentious civil disputes, including providing representation in court in Barnstaple.

Our legal team will always seek to resolve matters as quickly and efficiently as possible, guiding you through each step of the process. If appropriate, we will discuss the option of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, conciliation and round table meetings with you to seek to achieve an early compromise that is acceptable to you and could ultimately limit your costs. But if you require representation in court, a barrister or advocate – rest assured we are formidable litigators. Our Advocates have experience in helping to resolve a variety of disputes.

Boundary/Land Disputes

We are fortunate enough to live in a beautiful part of the world, within the rolling hills of North Devon and Exmoor, near enough to the coast to enjoy the sea and yet sometimes neighbour/land disputes can overshadow this. Housing and neighbour disputes can often occur because of overgrown gardens, trees that are damaging walls or overhanging property, high hedges or more commonly boundary disputes. A boundary dispute is a dispute over the position of where a boundary fence or wall lies. Perhaps the boundary line between your property and your neighbour’s property has been moved or an access you have had for many years is now blocked.

Party Wall Act and Escrow Agreements

A ‘party wall’ is the wall between your house and your neighbour’s house. The Party Wall Act can also apply to garden walls and fences and therefore any works in the vicinity of the boundary. The courts take a dim view of work without serving a party wall act notice and go on to cause damage to a neighbour’s property. Our specialist solicitors provide party wall advice across homes in the Barnstaple, Bideford, Torrington, Braunton, Ilfracombe and across the whole of North Devon. We represent clients in party wall disputes under the Act and in related appeals.
