If you have plans for property construction work, such as developing a housing estate or a block of flats, or you’d like to add an extension to your property, the right of light law is something you must consider. It is also important to understand your own rights if there is a new development being constructed close to you.
We can arrange right of light solicitors in Southend to offer advice and help your claim.
The law authorises property and landowners the right to the natural light which enters their property through windows and skylights. You could have acquired this legal right to light once the window in your property has been there for over 19 years and 1 day.
Once it has surpassed this timeframe, if neighbours construct any building work that disrupts natural light from passing through your window, you have the right to contest the building of the structure or claim damages from your neighbour instead. Our right to light consultants in Southend will work closely with a right of light surveyor who will investigate your claim in aim of your desired outcome.
