Neighbours' rights and obligatioA good neighbour… until you can no longer access your property.

Issues relating to neighbours' rights and obligations can often cause emotions to run high. This is because such issues usually relate to problems about ownership of immovable property, for example because a neighbour is encroaching on somebody else's land. This is often regarded as a huge violation of a person's property. Other examples include disputes about a site boundary or about shared foundations. Illegal nuisance is also a common problem. All these problems have to be resolved.

They occur not only between private individuals but also between private individuals and project developers with adjacent plots.

Our clientele therefore includes parties from outside Amsterdam, in places ranging from Rotterdam to Holysloot and everything in between. We can help any of the parties involved thanks to our experience with complex legal aspects concerning neighbours’ rights and obligations and our knowledge of the latest jurisprudence in the field of:

  • illegal nuisance
  • other types of nuisance
  • refurbishments and extensions
  • problems relating to site boundaries
  • building work relating to windows and openings in façades
  • servitudes
  • rights of way/rights of access
  • common ownership and permissions
  • problems relating to fencing
  • acquisitive prescription
  • discharge by limitation
  • problems relating to foundation work
  • interim injunction proceedings and building stops
  • liability in the event of damage

Often we manage, in consultation with your neighbours, to find a workable solution which does justice to your legal position. Sometimes, however, parties are diametrically opposed and a clear decision is needed.
