RIGHTS TO LIGHT

 

A right to light is an easement and is the right to receive sufficient natural light through a defined aperture. As the density of urban areas continue to increase to meet the needs of a rising population, infringements from new developments are increasingly common.

 

We work closely with our clients, their designers and legal advisors, to assess and manage the risks posed to their developments by rights to light issues. We also advise neighbours on the impact of development on their property.

 

We provide commercial, director-led advice tailored to suit each individual client's requirements. Our service, for developers, designers and neighbours include:

 

  • Pre-acquisition advice

  • Detailed technical analysis  

  • Optimum development envelopes and advice on scheme amendments

  • Negotiation and settlement of claims

  • Procuring insurance quotes

  • Acting as Expert Witness
