Can you sell a house with a boundary disputes?

Can you sell a house with boundary disputes?  The simple answer is, it depends on your buyer.  The good news is that Property Saviour will buy your house with boundary disputes.

You may have a boundary dispute with your neighbour.  These challenges can include:

  • Neighbour’s fence or wall that’s erected on your land;
  • Unable to sell your property because of ongoing or historic boundary dispute;
  • Historic boundary disputes dating back as far as 12 years or longer;
  • Boundary disputes can prevent buyers relying on mortgages from buying your property.

When a buyer finds out that a property has a boundary dispute, they do their research on Garden Law website where people complain of living in hell for years on end.  Here is a typical exchange of a boundary dispute on Garden Law website:

Question from a typical first-time buyer

“Hi – We are currently trying to buy a house that has a boundary dispute.  The neighbour has said the fence is about 20cm on his land.  Our solicitor brought this to our attention and has gotten the vendors side of events. He has however had to inform the mortgage company and reckons it could affect our chances of buying the house.  The survey came back all fine. We tried knocking on the door to the neighbour as we are happy to re-erect the fence further over but can’t seem to catch them in.
I wanted to know if anyone had experience of this.  I have googled but can only find info regarding selling.
Will this really mean we can’t have the house?  And yes we have thought a lot about whether we want to live next door to them, one of reasons we are trying to speak to them is to try and gauge how awful they could be!!”

Run several miles. My parents lived for years next door to some thoroughly unpleasant people who brought one ridiculous claim after another, it cost my parents thousands and they couldn’t move because no-one would buy their house due to ongoing disputes. Eventually they sold up and left; the people who bought it soon got embroiled in similar and ended up moving out leaving the house empty for six years until they sold it at a loss. I’ve since dealt with similar issues at work and have formed the view that no house is worth it.
