This guidance note is essential reading for all RICS members interested in boundary dispute practice and will also act as an effective refresher for experienced practitioners. It focuses on the different stages of a potential boundary dispute and the processes that an RICS member could follow as an example of best practice.
Professional practice issues such as dispute resolution, mediation, how to deal with initial contact and clients are underlined; investigation techniques and appropriate resources are also highlighted. Particular emphasis is also given to the primary roles of Land Registry, Ordnance Survey, the professional advisor and the chartered surveyor in a dispute situation. The importance of boundary research, measured field surveys and advice on best practice survey techniques and final report are outlined.
This guidance note also contains extensive listings of further reading and online resources. It was prepared by the members of the RICS Boundaries and Party Walls Working Group (B&PWWG), the Mapping and Positioning Practice Panel (MAPPP) and the Geomatics International Professional Group Board (GIPGB). The B&PWWG is a cross-faculty specialist panel of technical and chartered surveyors from the building, land surveying (Geomatics) and rural areas of practice, and brings together some of the leading and most distinguished professional surveyors working within the arena of neighbour disputes.
