The problem with boundary disputes is that they can become personal very quickly and ‘lines are drawn’ (literally sometimes) in a way that makes discussion and negotiation all the more difficult. Sometimes matters are unclear from the historical data available and often issues are complex.
A professional who can offer an objective (and honest) view, quickly get to grips with the issues involved, and be able to suggest a clear path towards resolution can save you considerable time, angst and money.
Determining boundaries positions can be a difficult process. Research of Title Registers, Deeds and Plans may be necessary as well as an onsite survey and measurement. Assessment of historic changes (which can occur by agreement or encroachment) may also be required.
Thorough research, though, provides a more certain outcome and will help define the accurate placement of the boundary in question.
Taking early advice from a competent surveyor is essential.
