Most conveyancing solicitors or conveyancing lawyers will tell you that you that a sure way to kill a conveyancing transaction is the revelation of a boundary dispute between neighbours.
The conveyancing process requires in various forms to reveal disputes relating to the property and in particular boundary disputes. These disputes have to be revealed in conveyancing forms such as a Sellers Property Information From. With the introduction of Home Information Packs ( Hips ) and Property Information Questionnaires ( PIQ ) disputes should now be revealed even earlier. In yet another boundary dispute over a small piece of land of limited value the Court of Appeal has emphasised the importance of referring these disputes to mediation at the earliest possible opportunity. Good conveyancing advice dictates that such disputes should be resolved before you consider placing your property on the market and most certainly before the conveyancing process.
