Boundary Disputes - Recent Developments & Case Law
Boundary disputes are among the most intractable forms of litigation, the difficulties being caused not only by the emotional involvement of the parties but also by the range of procedural ways in which the available claims may present.
Useful guidance is to be had from the Boundary Disputes Protocol, and as ever it is vital to keep an eye on the developing caselaw in this technical area. Recent developments have illustrated the elusiveness of the dividing line between boundary disputes and adverse possession claims, for example.
This webinar considers how the dispute framework has potential to dispel misunderstandings and narrow the scope of disputes, so as to support efforts to achieve settlement at the least damage to the parties.
