Our property dispute services in Hastings

Landlord and tenant disputes

Maintaining a strong positive relationship with your landlord or tenant is often desired, but unfortunately, disputes can often occur over disagreements concerning the property management, tenancy agreement, or another reason. Disputes concerning landlords and tenants can quickly escalate, so seeking the right legal advice at the earliest opportunity is recommended.

Whether you are a landlord or tenant suffering from a dispute, our team is available to assist you. We have worked with a range of clients over the years. No matter the type of assistance you need, our solicitors are on hand to provide an efficient and effective service.

Our solicitors can assist with matters including:

  • Rent arrears
  • Dilapidation
  • Eviction
  • Property management
  • Breach of the tenancy agreement
  • Service charge

Disputes with builders

When you hire a builder to manage and participate in undergoing a project on your home, you are trusting them to use their skills and experience to achieve an excellent outcome. But where this does not happen due to their negligence, it can feel frustrating and has the potential to be very costly and time consuming.  

Our solicitors understand how complicated and upsetting such a dispute can be. When you work with us, you can be confident that we will always make sure matters are swiftly resolved and done in your best interests.

Boundary disputes

Boundaries are not always clearly set out in the property deeds, and when making amendments to your property, disputes have the potential to unravel with residents of bordering properties.

At Heringtons, we recognise how challenging boundary disputes are. When you seek our legal expertise, our solicitors will help to analyse your land registry title plans or, if necessary, the pre-registration deeds to establish the precise boundary.

Service charge disputes

When you pay a service charge, you expect to receive the service promised. Sadly, service charges are one of the main causes of landlord and tenant disputes. This is usually due to the service not efficiently being provided or making adjustments to the cost without reasonable explanation.

Service charges have to be served correctly in compliance with the law. Our solicitors can assist in proving the breach of law and help find a resolution without handling the matter in a court setting.

Restrictive covenants

Often, a restrictive covenant will be put in place on a property to prevent certain actions from being taken. For the owners of the property in question or an adjacent property, this can have a detrimental impact on those it affects.

If you are experiencing a restrictive covenant dispute, our solicitors recognises how challenging and stressful such a situation can be to deal with. We will take the time to fully understand your situation and the negative impact it is having.

Our team will carefully examine the property deeds in an attempt to find a loophole around the restrictive covenant, and where this is not possible, gain retrospective planning permission.

Neighbour disputes

Whether your neighbour is continuously loud, inconsiderate or projects anti-social behaviour, it can be frustrating and make your life extremely stressful and unenjoyable. Ensuring you have support from a solicitor is important during times like these.

We believe in non-confrontational approaches to disputes and will always attempt to resolve matters using alternative dispute resolution, such as negotiation and mediation. Doing this helps to maintain relationships, which is particularly important when living in close proximity 24/7.

Our solicitors have expertise in neighbour disputes, including:

  • Boundary
  • Right of way
  • Proposed extension
  • Anti-social behaviour

Our property dispute resolution methods

Our solicitors understand how important it is to prevent property disputes from escalating and ensure our clients feel stress free and confident in our abilities.

In most instances, out-of-court methods are not necessary for property disputes. Where possible, when you choose to work with the Heringtons team, our solicitors will guide you towards a non-contentious approach to resolving your dispute through the means of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as private negotiation and mediation.

If ADR is not appropriate for your matter, our solicitors can support you in preparing for court and during the hearing, helping to create a strong argument on your behalf and representation where desired. We have a high record of success and will tirelessly fight to achieve the outcome desired for your needs and best interest.
