Property Dispute Resolution Solicitors City Centre Glasgow

Property disputes can take many forms. They can arise in respect of the ownership or use of land in relation to both commercial or residential property, such as disputes over deposits, repairs, boundaries or access. The sheer scope of property disputes is reflected in our client base, which includes private individuals, landlords, tenants, contractors and developers, who commonly ask us to help them answer questions such as:

If you are asking yourself the same or similar questions, our property dispute lawyers are ready to help you find the answers. Just as no two property disputes are the same, how a matter is best resolved depends on the particular circumstances. We will work with you to find the best possible solution, so that your property dispute is resolved in a way that protects your interests and achieves the best possible outcome.

Litigation isn’t the only means of resolving a property dispute. In many circumstances, alternative methods of dispute resolution provide a more suitable, less costly way of bringing a disagreement involving property to an end. These more informal processes include:

  • Negotiation – where parties and their representatives enter into discussions aimed at agreeing to settle a property dispute
  • Mediation – where parties voluntarily appoint an independent third party (the mediator) to help them explore issues and reach a compromise
  • Arbitration – where parties agree to refer a dispute to an independent third party (the arbitrator) who hears both sides and then decides a legally-binding outcome
  • Adjudication – where parties agree to refer a dispute to an independent adjudicator who considers the evidence in order to reach a legally-binding decision

These methods of property dispute resolution are often less time-consuming, less stressful and much cheaper than litigation. The potential outcomes are also far more flexible because they are informed by the will of the parties involved in the dispute rather than dictated to them by a court. There are circumstances, however, where the only way of bringing a property matter to a close is by getting a final determination from the courts.

Property Litigation

Whether pursuing or defending, engagement with property litigation needs to be planned, managed and expertly conducted. This requires a deep understanding of both the relevant law and legal procedure as they apply to the case at hand. It also requires commercial acumen, objectivity and confidence. Our team has over 28 years’ experience litigating matters in Scotland’s tribunals and courts. We know how much our clients value our personal and effective service, and we’re dedicated to maintaining a sensitive eye on the economics associated with achieving a practical resolution.

Headed by director David Doig, we have particular expertise in disputes involving neighbours and matters involving the interpretation of deeds of conditions relevant to common property. We are also known for our expert knowledge of the law surrounding tenancy agreements, both domestic and commercial, and regularly assist clients to resolve issues arising in the creation of tenancies, through the operation of leases and on termination of such contractual arrangements. We also regularly provide advice and assistance with regard to service of relevant notices to quit and AT6s and pre action protocols, as well as raising appropriate proceedings on behalf of landlords for eviction/ejection and removal of defaulting tenants. We also have experience in evicting parties utilising land to which they have no title to occupy.
