Property Dispute Resolution

Whether you are in dispute with a neighbour over a party wall or boundary, or you are a landlord trying to recover rent from a tenant, property disputes can be stressful, sour relationships and are often not quick or easy to resolve.

At Rotheras our Dispute Resolution team can advise homeowners, landowners, commercial landlords, property developers and investors on a wide range of property disputes, drawing on their previous experience and insight to anticipate any problems which may arise.

Where possible we will encourage using alternative dispute resolution to resolve your matter; however, if this is not feasible our team have substantial experience to guide your argument through court.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.

Claim dealt with efficiently and to a satisfactory conclusion. Wayne Vickers visited me at home initially and explained everything thoroughly. Professional service throughout. Recommended
