Real Estate Disputes

Rights of Light for Homeowners


We have specialist expertise in rights of light matters.  We have helped many homeowners recover, sometimes considerable, compensation when a new neighbouring development will or already has reduced the amount of light they previously enjoyed.

Our team can advise and help you:

  • Obtain compensation
  • Deal with negotiations with the developers – often we act for several homeowners living in the same block
  • Advise on settlement terms
  • Where necessary take court action – sometimes needed to prevent the new development being built
  • Find right to light expert surveyors needed to assess and value any claim.

Very often the developer will pay for you to see and be advised by a solicitor.
