This book is a practical guide for those seeking to resolve disputes between neighbours who are at war with each other - whether it be about noise, overhanging branches, the position of a fence, or some other irritation that has sparked neighbour rage.
It draws together the relevant strands of the law - on negligence, nuisance, misrepresentation, trespass, rights of way, boundaries, party walls, the right to light, trees and hedges, weeds and pests, waste water and drainage.
Written by solicitors with many years' experience of dealing with such disputes, it contains practical hints to hasten resolving difficulties; while recognising the desirability of restoring harmony between the disputing parties. It provides an insight into some of the many powers of the local authorities - to deal with noise, for example - which may be invoked to bring to an end the behaviour complained of.
The importance of seeking to settle a dispute without having to resort to litigation is a theme running through the book, as is the ever-vexing question of costs.
