Boundary Disputes
Practice and Precedents, 2nd edition

William Hanbury


Boundary disputes can lead to a particularly painful form of litigation. In addition to the strong feelings of disputants, challenges for practitioners arise from increasingly complex legal principles, a wide range of dispute resolution methods (including specialist tribunals and mediation) and a greater focus on costs.

The second edition of this book has been much expanded and updated to offer lawyers and litigants-in-person:

  • guidance from an experienced practitioner to help identify and assess the evidence a summary of the funding options
  • a concise exposition of the law showing how it applies to practical problems
  • detailed coverage of the rules relating to the First-Tier Tribunal (Land Registration Division) and how it has worked in practice.

Statutory extracts are given in the appendix for quick reference and an expanded range of precedents are included on the accompanying CD-ROM for ease of customisation.
