Carlisle Solicitor Practice


We represent our clients in courts and tribunals across the country. We have seen it all – but there is always a new challenge to meet.

We appreciate that property disputes can be particularly sensitive because the opposing parties will often be neighbours. You will still have to live or work next to each other when matters are concluded. You can trust us to find a solution which meets your needs but also handles those important relationships with sensitivity.

We work closely with our non-contentious property department and have a wide range of experience of resolving property disputes through litigation, mediation and other types of alternative dispute resolution. Where appropriate, we are often able to assist our clients to resolve issues through negotiation to avoid incurring the costs and anxiety of litigation.

Our experience includes:

  • Dilapidation, disrepair and end of tenancy issues
  • Trespass and adverse possession
  • Possession and forfeiture
  • Easements, boundaries, and rights of way
  • Covenants
  • Party Walls Act disputes
  • Use and abuse of land
  • Planning and environmental disputes
  • Shared access, parking and boundary disputes


No two disputes are the same which is why we build a plan tailored to your needs to get you the outcome you want. We’re always flexible in our work with clients and that also applies to how you can fund any litigation work.

There are a number of ways of funding, which we would be pleased to discuss in more detail:

  • Legal Expenses Insurance
  • Hourly rates for agreed levels of investigation and advice
  • Fixed price quotations for agreed levels of investigation and advice
