Party Walls, Access and Other Neighbourly Issues Short course


There are times when tension can occur between owners and occupiers of neighbouring properties. For example, situations when a neighbour has to provide access for work to be undertaken.

As a property professional, you might have to give advice in these situations, both with regard to the statutory rights of neighbours, and also seeking resolution to disputes.

This course examines these key issues and illustrates how they should be dealt with, by referencing practice-based case studies.
