Rights of Light

right of light- final

We can offer a wealth of experience in interpreting and applying all matters relating to rights of light, advising on any scale of project, whether for the developer or the neighbour. Between them, our directors have many years of experience and have provided expert evidence in leading court cases.

When acting for the developing party our role ranges from pre-purchase advice on likely massing options and risk, through to detailed advice on site optimisation in conjunction with the design team and negotiating agreements with affected parties. This includes detailed technical studies using 3D modelling and the most up-to-date, bespoke computer software, as well as providing advice on both injunction risk and potential compensation liability.

When assisting the affected neighbouring owner we can advise on the likelihood of a court granting an injunction, the process of stopping works and the potential to claim compensation as an alternative remedy. 

Key points

  • Take advice as early as possible in order to ensure appropriate technical studies are undertaken in good time.
  • Establish risks associated with the development and agree on the strategy to adopt.  Ensure the strategies are flexible, as this process deals with other people’s amenity and is a subjective area.
  • Take advice from recognised legal experts in this complex and litigious field. Where necessary, we will put you in contact with suitable solicitors and/or barristers.
