Neighbour disputes

Neighbour disputes


Unfortunately, neighbourliness not infrequently gives rise to disagreements and, at worst, legal disputes between neighbours. We can assist with advice and in a legal dispute with a neighbour.

The relationship between neighbours is basically regulated by the Neighbours Act. The main provision is section 2, which reads: "Nobody must have, do or start something which unreasonably or unnecessary damages or disadvantages the neighboring property. A disadvantage includes something that may be considered dangerous."

The provision provides a basis for discussion and subsequent disagreement, including on buildings, construction, utilisation and use of neighbouring property. A very common source of disagreement is the height and design of hedges against neighboring property.

The Neighbours Act must be supplemented by the Fencing Act. The act contains provisions in respect of fences against the neighbouring property.
