Anstey's Boundary Disputes

Anstey's Boundary Disputes

The third edition of this classic text provides expert guidance written in an entertaining manner on a very common area of disputes in residential property surveying – boundaries. These cause more problems between suburban neighbours than any other matter. Although potentially simple to resolve, such disputes often end up in court, due to a misunderstanding of the issues involved. Updated by David Powell, an expert in this field, the new version contains new material throughout, including:

  • references to the new Land Registration Act;

  • new information on adverse possession;

  • the preparation of an expert report;

  • the use of modern measuring techniques;

  • two new chapters on boundaries in housing estates and aerial photography;

  • a wealth of anecdotes and diagrams; and

  • case studies.
