planning issues with neighbours – these disputes accounted for 38% of the total.
Increasingly people are seeking legal action to get tough on these disputes and
resolve conflicts within the law. The Saga Legal Services report reveals 52% of those

31% found the process slow and tiresome and 16% said the advice had cost more than
Dewar Hogan [http://www.dewarhogan.co.uk ] is a law firm dealing entirely with
property litigation. Through specialising it is able to offer a fast and effective service
and it knows property law better than any other law firm in the country – surprisingly
there are no other law firms dealing exclusively in property law in the United Kingdom.
Although Dewar Hogan is in this advantageous niche position, it does not attempt to
insist on legal action where it’s not necessary; 40% of its work is purely advisory.
Additionally, it advises its clients of its fees up front and in advance so people can
make an informed decision on whether to take legal action over a boundary dispute.
Boundary disputes are commonplace in the UK and as the country becomes more and more
urbanised and lacking in space these disputes are likely to increase. As a result, legal
advice will become ever more important.
Dewar Hogan can assist with all areas of a boundary dispute from offering initial
advice through to advising on which barrister should take the matter to court, where
necessary. However, Dewar Hogan always tries to settle matters out of court amicably, as
this is generally the best course of action for all parties involved in boundary disputes.
More information on Dewar Hogan’s services and how it tackles boundary disputes can be
found on its website.
