Are you based in Rayleigh and are planning a new development? For example, a housing estate or a block of flats? Perhaps an extension to existing property? Or do you own a property near to other property or land which is being developed? Then you should be aware of neighbouring ‘rights of light’.
If a window in your home or commercial premises has existed for more than 19 years and 1 day, then you may have acquired a ‘legal right of light’ through that window.
If your neighbour builds a structure which affects the level of light illuminating a room through that window, you may be able to either prevent that structure from being built or claim damages from your neighbour for the ‘injury.’ Our right of light solicitors in Rayleigh can help you with this.
If you want to develop your property in Rayleigh, you will need to investigate whether any neighbouring windows have acquired this legal right of light over your land. Our right to light consultants in Rayleigh can assist you by providing you with a surveyor who can perform this investigation.
