Hi Everyone,

I am having a dispute over easements with a neighbour and I need the help of a Solicitor.

Can anyone recommend a solicitor that specialises in Property law Please? Also if anyone has any experience with easements please let me know.

Thanks everyone.

A pleasure, let me know how you get on. Am intrigued to know what kind of right-of-way issues can emerge round here!

As you know I will be calling Fergus tomorrow.

I will give you fuller details as soon as I can but basically we own a driveway which a neighbouring property has an easement on.

This easement says (amongst other things) that the neighbour has right of way (on a strip of land 7' high and 7' wide) for maintenance purposes only. Despite the easement being very specific the neighbour is claiming that this strip of land allows him to use it for daily pedestrian traffic etc etc.

Hence the need for us to have a solicitor examine the easement in question.

Thanks once again for your help.
