Are No Win No Fee Arrangements Available for Boundary Disputes?
Conditional (or "no win no fee") arrangements can be put in place for boundary disputes, in appropriate cases. This type of financial arrangement can help a great deal by deferring payment of legal fees until a matter is concluded.
No win no fee arrangements are only appropriate in cases where the prospects of success are good. They also usually mean that the legal fees will be higher than if they were paid along the way. But the main advantage to the client is that the fees are not payable until the end. The solicitor will share the risk of the litigation with you.
Nobody wants to become involved in a boundary dispute and like any type of litigation, such disputes can be stressful and time consuming. Sometimes, however, they are unavoidable.
Boundary disputes can arise in a number of ways, including:
- poor boundary demarcation;
- through the use of an easements; or
- after work affecting the boundaries or neighbouring properties.
It is important that you instruct the right lawyer to support you if you become involved in a dispute about a boundary.
