Blog: Neighbours at War!?

How often have we seen what appears to be a minor or insignificant issue or dispute between neighbours, escalating quickly into a full scale war?

If there are signs that trouble is brewing, do your best to resolve things peacefully and quickly by having constructive conversations – do avoid aggressive notes and emails – have a chat, invite your neighbours round for a drink, develop a cordial and respectful relationship – make it easy to talk about things that could otherwise cause trouble.

If an issue or dispute cannot be resolved quickly and easily, seek professional advice as soon as possible, to ensure firstly that you understand your legal rights, and secondly to discuss and agree a plan towards a reasonably satisfactory outcome, perhaps using a third party mediator to intervene and lower the temperature.
