Public and Private Nuisance Claims
Nuisance caused by neighbours, or other parties can cause stress and generally make life difficult. Here at Norrie Waite & Slater Solicitors we have the specialist legal knowledge to help you put an end to the nuisance.
Nuisance can take many forms including physical damage to your property, smells, leaks or noise. It may also include interference with your rights over land, such as a right of way or an overgrowing tree or hedge.
Nuisance is generally split into two categories: Public Nuisance and Private Nuisance. Public nuisance is where someone's actions affect a number of people as a whole and private nuisance is where those actions cause interference to an individual's use or enjoyment of their land.
If your neighbours are causing a nuisance, there are legal remedies available to you ranging from a Court Injunction to oblige them to cease their actions to financial damages for any losses you have suffered.
It is often possible to settle these problems without the need to go to court, but it is important to get expert legal advice so you know your rights and know how to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.
If you need any further assistance we can help and you should contact us for a consultation.
