Unfortunately, despite widespread judicial criticism, neighbour disputes remain extremely common. They have also been known to even grab headlines due to the seemingly trivial nature of the dispute and the willingness of the parties to incur a significant amount of legal costs in fighting it. This book explores the various ways in which a neighbour dispute can arise, the remedies available and provides practical guidance to assist practitioners on how best to deal with such disputes, which can often prove to be extremely difficult to resolve.
