Overview

Legal advice on neighbour disputes in Scotland

There are few things in life as challenging as a neighbour dispute. Our homes are our ‘safe space’. It is where we spend most of our non-working day, and increasingly where some of us spend most of our working day as well.

Neighbour disputes can arise over many things. Boundary disputes, overhanging trees and bushes, noise and anti-social behaviour are just some examples of how negative relations with your neighbours can lead to an intolerable home life.

Our team of lawyers across Scotland, with offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness and Highlands and Shetland, are able to discuss all available options with you: from seeking amicable settlement through mediation, to reporting matters to the relevant local authority departments and ultimately pursuing litigation to abate behaviour.

FAQS

Common questions about neighbour disputes
What are the most common Neighbour disputes?

Answer

Neighbour disputes take many forms. Most commonly, we see disputes arising over the precise location of a boundary on the ground, and associated issues regarding access for maintenance purposes.

Unfortunately, we are also regularly instructed in cases involving harassment, usually where a less serious dispute has been allowed to fester and get out of control.

What should I do if I have a dispute with my Neighbour?

Answer

Do not ignore it and hope it goes away. This is likely to result in an otherwise minor issue festering and becoming a bigger problem.

It could also result in a court finding that you waived your right to take issue with whatever your neighbour has done because you did not deal with it quickly enough. Take advice quickly to understand your options.

Can I take legal action against my Neighbour?

Answer

This will depend on the circumstances of the dispute. There will likely be a number of options available to you, not all of which will require legal action by you against your neighbour. To better understand your options, contact one of our specialist solicitors.
