When a property is held in joint names, disputes can often arise when the circumstances of one or both of the owners change. This can happen, for example, when co-habitees decide that they can no longer live together, when there are arguments over who has the right to live in the property or when the property is to be sold.
For most people, their home is their most valuable asset as well being as a symbol of comfort and security. It is therefore hardly surprising that disputes between co-owners can become protracted and emotional. When this happens, Pictons’ Litigation team can provide the professional knowledge and support you need at this stressful time.
We focus on giving practical and jargon-free advice and can explain to you the wide-ranging powers which the courts have to settle such disputes. However, in many cases, our experienced litigators can facilitate communication and/or mediation between the parties and thereby avoid costly court action.
Our goal is to ensure that your litigation is handled in the manner most suitable to a swift and cost effective resolution while safeguarding your legal rights.
