2017 Guide to Boundary Disputes

2 CPD Hours = £36

Competency/Learning Objective - Legal knowledge and skills

Establishing the true line of a boundary is a problem which bedevils residential and commercial property alike. In many cases the plans are, in the words of the Court of Appeal ‘worse than useless’, and practitioners must piece together the precise extent of the property from a variety of sources.

This course offers practical guidance in this complex area of the law, by reference to the latest case law. By the end of the course you should be able to advise authoritatively on:

  • the evidence needed to establish the true boundary

  • the relevance and effect of boundary agreements

  • the impact of the law relating to adverse possession

  • the potential for rectification of the register

  • the role of the Land Registry and others in determining boundaries
