The body of law concerning matters which affect relations between neighbours is wide-ranging and often complex. Now in its 5th edition, Neighbours and the Law
is the only publication so comprehensively to draw together all of this information in one volume.
This practical work explains the possible causes of action and remedies available to parties involved in a dispute. Neighbours and the Law
gives guidance on the various procedures for obtaining redress against private individuals, as well as against public authorities that fail to comply with their regulatory duties. It covers issues as varied as:
Rights to light, air and support
Rights of way and parking
Party walls, fences and hedges
Planning and building control
The 5th edition has been fully updated to take account of numerous developments in the law including the Housing Act 2004, the Clean Neighbourhoods & Environment Act 2005, the Planning Act 2008, amendments to the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 and all relevant new case law. It has many new and updated sections, dealing with areas such as empty dwellings, flooding, licensed premises, and proceedings before the Adjudicator to HM Land Registry.
There is an updated selection of precedents for use in frequently encountered situations. The title also includes the texts of Part 35 of the Civil Procedure Rules, the new Protocol for the Instruction of Experts to give evidence in civil claims and the Access to Neighbouring Land Act 1992, as well as a revised list of useful website addresses.
Neighbours and the Law
is a quick and convenient reference work for all solicitors, barristers, surveyors and other professionals advising on neighbour disputes, as well as for local authority legal and other departments who may be called upon to give advice to members of the public or to take regulatory action in connection with such a dispute.
