Right to Light Dispute Solicitors

The light that enters your home can have a significant impact on your enjoyment of a particular room. A “right to light” is a right, known as an easement, that gives a landowner the right to receive light over another person’s land to particular windows in a building. Disputes over the right to light usually arise when property owners have concerns about a neighbour or building developer causing a reduction in light through an obstruction on neighbouring land, which could result in a breach of the right to light. When this happens, it is natural to want to take action to protect it.

Are you experiencing difficulties protecting your right to light or involved in a dispute with another property owner or developer over right to light matters? This is a complex area of the law, and seeking specialist legal advice is often the only and most effective way to achieve a favourable outcome.


Dispute Resolution For Right To Light Claims

We understand that property issues can be extremely frustrating and stressful. Therefore, we prioritise good communication and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to simplify the process. This approach helps to find a fair solution that protects your interests without escalating the situation into unnecessary conflict. If you require specialist advice on a right to light issue, our specialist dispute resolution solicitors have the longstanding experience and expertise to help.

Our team can advise and represent you during negotiations, helping to keep the process constructive and giving you the best chance of a positive outcome that protects your interests. At Rose & Rose, our dispute resolution lawyers are skilled negotiators and highly skilled in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), so we can often resolve these disputes out of court.

Court Proceedings

Our property disputes team will advise you on where this is likely to be your best option and can assist with preparing your case and providing representation for any required court hearings. While our aim will always be to resolve matters outside of the court, we also have strong court expertise, meaning we can provide the best possible representation where more robust action is needed.
