Resolving a long-running neighbour dispute

Dean acted for clients locked into a long-running dispute with their neighbours. This was the second set of proceedings between the parties, in which Dean’s clients sought (i) access to their neighbours’ land to enable repairs to be carried out to the clients’ conservatory, (ii) damages to cover the cost of repairing the conservatory, and (iii) an injunction requiring their neighbours to stop making noise and causing a nuisance affecting their enjoyment of their own property.

Part-way through the second set of proceedings Dean was able to negotiate a settlement on behalf of his clients, whereby the neighbours moved house (thus access and the injunction were no longer an issue), and paid the full sum required to carry out the repairs as well as a contribution towards the clients’ costs.
