Overview Can we help?

At Whitehead Monckton we have expertise in all aspects of property and planning disputes. We help developers, businesses and other organizations with properties they invest in, develop or simply occupy.


We “problem solve”, working closely with our specialists in other areas, including commercial real estate and planning.


We can assist with the following types of potential dispute:

  • Restrictive covenants
  • Disputes over easements
  • Eviction of squatters and travellers
  • Land contracts, disputes about conditional contracts, option agreement and overage disputes
  • Adverse possession and trespass
  • Boundary disputes
  • Rights of way, rights to light and party walls
  • Compulsory purchase
  • Development agreement and joint venture disputes
  • Determination of beneficial interests in land
  • Applications to register land as town or village greens
  • Judicial review of planning decisions 
  • Environmental law disputes

We have a very experience team of lawyers who handle a very wide range of business disputes. It’s important to ensure a commercial approach to planning disputes as any dispute will cause problems for business and may be disruptive.


Our experience highlights that disputes can be quite protracted before we are involved and therefore importantly, we will seek an early solution.  Where this is not possible, rest assured will pursue a case with vigour.  We favour Alternative Dispute Resolution, and can provide the full range of commercial mediation services, from the representation of clients to the appointment of an Accredited Mediator.
