Property ownership disputes such as cohabitation issues
Whether it be friends buying together in order to get onto the property ladder, parents lending money to their child and perhaps their child’s partner to enable them to purchase a property, the high cost of Jersey property dictates that people will consider Jersey property ownership jointly. A breakdown of a relationship between cohabitees, family members, business partners, or friends, can eventually lead to disputes over Jersey property ownership.

Party Wall disputes
Party wall disputes can occur between neighbours when buildings are renovated, or some other sort of construction work is carried out on a property. As one party instigates a change that affects both properties, there can be permission issues. Determining what you can or can’t legally do with regard to a Jersey party wall can become a source of conflict and lead to disputes with your neighbour.

In practicality, boundaries are often not clear, and over time, changes can occur that mean boundaries move. Determining which boundary line is correct can become a source of conflict and lead to disputes between neighbours.Boundary disputes are not uncommon and relate to an issue when two parties believe they have the right to a piece of land.

Under Jersey property law, you owe a customary duty to your neighbour. The Jersey concept of voisinage governs the relationships between neighbouring landowners. This essentially means a landowner can only enjoy his own property to the extent it does not injure his neighbour. Colloquially one may refer to this as “nuisance”, but in legal terms, the English concept of nuisance does not apply in Jersey. Voisinage is a doctrine peculiar to Jersey law.
