Boundary Disputes

The Land Registration Act, 2000. In the UK land ownership by Title Deed is in course of replacement by a system under which owners rely upon a Certificate of Title, as opposed to original deeds.

On both the original Deeds and on the modern Certificates the lines on the plans do not necessarily represent the precise location of physical features such as fences, walls and hedges, etc.

When a dispute arises the exact location of a boundary is identified by investigation of both the physical and documentary evidence. The fact that land can (in certain circumstances) be acquired by “Adverse Possession” must also be considered.

At Tombleson Associates we are qualified to advise on a wide range of land tenure issues including, for example: covenants, easements, leases and licences, etc.

We can arrange for Land Survey Plans to be drawn to scale with great accuracy.
