The Irish relationship with land is much maligned and is a deep part of our culture as evidenced in films such as the version of John B Keane’s The Field.

It is however a fact of life that disputes in the area of land are not uncommon even in this modern age.

At Carmody Moran Solicitors we have handled a variety of such actions including:

  • Disputes over land ownership
  • Boundary disputes
  • Construction disputes and professional negligence
  • Rights of Way
  • Easements
  • Landlocked property
  • Adverse possession
  • Injunctive relief
  • Co- Ownership disputes
  • Management Company / Multi-Unit Development disputes
  • Commercial disputes
  • Matrimonial disputes

Often these matters have come about through no fault or intention of the individuals involved but as a result of the errors of other professionals in the conveyancing process such as lawyers or engineers or because of a lack of input from such qualified individuals or badly prepared maps or deeds or simple mistake.

As time has passed the situation on the ground may changed.  Persons can take action to develop the land ignorant of the legal position that then gives rise to a separate set of legal issues when the time comes to sell the land or some other matters occurs such as development.

The situation is often complex and tensions can become fraught.  Experienced advice can set your mind and ease and set about rectifying these issues in a cost effective, sensitive, and timely manner.

Land & Property Dispute Resolutions

If agreement cannot be reached alternative dispute resolutions such as mediation and arbitration can be considered as well as recourse to the courts for relief.
