At Whitehead Monckton we have expertise in all aspects of property and planning litigation. We help developers, businesses and other organisations with properties they invest in, develop or simply occupy.
We “problem solve”, working closely with our specialists in other areas, including commercial property.
Going to Court should always be considered a matter of last resort, but we are able to act quickly where necessary by taking injunction proceedings. The team is experienced in handling litigation in all the specialist forums for property disputes. These include not only the High Court and the County Court, but also the Property Chamber (both First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal) and the Tribunal (Lands Chamber).
The areas our work covers includes the following:
Disputes over easements
Eviction of squatters and travellers
Land contracts, disputes about conditional contracts, option agreement and overage disputes
Adverse possession and trespass
Rights of way, rights to light and party walls
Development agreement and joint venture disputes
Determination of beneficial interests in land
Applications to register land as town or village greens
