Neighbour law

What is neighbour law?

Neighbour law refers to all laws and regulations that regulate powers and obligations between neighbours. For example, neighbour law regulates how neighbours should behave towards each other and towards each other's property. Despite the rules of neighbour law, disputes can still arise between neighbours. These range from disputes over the property boundary, the property division, overbuilding and drainage to disputes over planting and/or windows within two metres of the property boundary.

No matter how good the mutual relationship between neighbours may have been at any time, a dispute can always arise. Delissen Martens assists you in reaching a good solution. In practice, such a solution often consists of reaching a compromise.
