A nuisance is a substantial interference with a person’s use and enjoyment of their property or rights associated with it. Common examples of a private nuisance are flooding and noise. Often when a nuisance occurs there is resulting damage to the property, which, if the nuisance is not stopped immediately the damage will continue. It is important for both sides to act promptly when a nuisance occurs, to mitigate losses and gain full advantage of the available remedies, whether that be to stop the nuisance or be compensated for the interference.
We can help by:
- Providing timely advice as to your rights and responsibilities when a nuisance occurs or one is about to occur, and what remedies are available to you.
- Negotiating with an opponent to establish whether settlement can be reached.
- Liaising with and instructing experts in establishing the extent of an interference.
- Issuing and defending injunction applications to stop a nuisance and damage to property.
