January 2024

Following JK Rowling’s recent dispute with neighbours over hedge maintenance, Director and Head of Residential Real Estate Goli-Michelle Banan comments on resolving boundary issues.

Goli-Michelle’s comments were published in The Telegraph, 26 January 2024, and can be found here.

“We had one where the neighbour of a client built a fence that was much higher than the one before. They said it was for privacy reasons but our client argued that it was not just unsightly, it also blocked the light coming into their garden.

“It’s more common in cases where neighbours have a shared pathway, larger properties or blurred boundary lines.”
