It’s not uncommon for developers to be unaware of the right of light law, so it’s important to understand your rights when it comes to new developments disturbing your natural light.

If your property’s windows are older than 19 years and 1 day, then they may have acquired the right to light. This means that if the natural light from these windows becomes disrupted by a new construction, you can contest the building or claim damages.

With the right to light law, developers should make sure their new build, extension or construction does not disrupt surrounding neighbours’ light. It prevents situations like a neighbour building a property or extension close to another property and preventing light from shining over your building or land.

Similarly, if you’re a developer, you need to have regard to right of light entitlements and our specialists can advise you on the legalities too.
