Our Real Property Expertise

Tanfield is a leader in Real Property issues. From Boundary Disputes and Easements to Land Registration.

Building on the Set’s ‘traditional’ Real Property expertise – including Registered Land, Unregistered Land, Conveyancing, Trusts of Land and Co-Ownership – members of Tanfield’s Real Property team boast niche expertise in such specialist matters as Village Greens & Commons, Public Rights of Way, Rights to Light and Party Walls.

Linked to Tanfield’s equally well-respected Landlord & Tenant practice, members have also developed a strong specialism in Property Damage, Social Housing, Construction & Developments.

What sets Tanfield apart, however, is the strength in depth the Set offers, across all levels of call and for all types of Real Property problem or dispute. Consistently called to represent clients in some of the most high profile and notable cases, at all levels of court.
