Public and Private Nuisance Disputes

Nuisance that’s caused by your neighbours, or other parties can make life difficult. Here at Norrie Waite & Slater Solicitors we have the specialist legal knowledge to help you put an end to any nuisance you are experiencing.

Nuisance can take many forms such as 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 overhanging tree or hedge.

Nuisance is split into two types: these are 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 own property.

If your neighbours are causing a nuisance, there are options available to you ranging from obtaining a Court Injunction to force  them to cease their actions to obtaining compensation from them 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 from us 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.
