Right to Light Issues You May Need To Assist
Your assistance will be invaluable – you will need to advise them on title matters, or matters relating to Light Obstruction Notices, and, in the event of there being issues that can be resolved by negotiation, then you will be required to draw up, or check, a Deed of Release.
Seek Right to Light Advice From the Experts
Here at Smith Marston, we are experienced in dealing with a wide range of loss of light legal cases. We provide specialist advice on legal right to light matters. We can advise and give guidance on the next steps in the legal process and support you with your case.
Learn How to Deal with Loss of Light Settlements
In certain situations, there may be no possibility of a negotiated settlement. If this is the case, you will be required to assist your client pre-court by way of advice over case law, pre-action protocol, Part 36 offers, obtaining injunctions, and of course, if matters proceed to court, your involvement will be essential.
Establishing If Right to Light Law Has Been Injured
Of course, before much of the above is required, it will first be necessary to establish if there is indeed an injury to light that might be classed as injurious. Often we find that whilst people will sometimes suffer ‘some’ loss of light, it can sometimes not be significant enough to demonstrate a legal injury worthy of pursuing through the courts.
