Several issues can crop up when it comes to property matters. From resolving conflicts between commercial landlords and their tenants to determining the genuine title of a piece of land on an agricultural property. There might be a lot of problems, and they can take a long time to get rid of. These concerns are usually resolved through conflict settlement or property litigation, both of which would necessitate the assistance of knowledgeable counsel. But first, what exactly is property litigation, and who has to be aware of it?

What Is Property Litigation?

Before you go any further you should understand the term property litigation and what does it cover. Property litigation is a branch of law that focuses on disputes involving any type or value of the property. Property litigation typically involves resolving conflicts between property owners and their tenants, although it can also involve the ownership of residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural property. Any legal issues of the buying, selling, leasing, and ownership of property can be found under the umbrella of property litigation procedures.

You may hear the word ‘conflict resolution’ instead of ‘property litigation’ in some regions, but the two expressions refer to two separate legal processes. The term ‘litigation’ refers to issues that are resolved through the court system, whereas ‘conflict resolution’ refers to alternate methods of addressing issues that are not resolved through the judicial system. Most parties, therefore, prefer to pursue dispute settlement before proceeding to the lawsuit because it is generally less expensive and acrimonious than going to court. Because there are so many issues that might arise in the field of property, solicitors will frequently recommend conflict settlement and will guide you through the process, only resorting to litigation if required.

With so many concerns relating to property, solicitors suggest resolving the issues through dispute settlement and only resorting to litigation if required.

Who Needs Property Litigation?

Property litigation services can help a property owner, or someone wishing to buy a property of any kind, at any phase in the process, whether the property is residential, commercial, industrial, or even agricultural. Retailers, investors, developers, property managers, leaseholders, educational institutions, financial institutions, and commercial and residential landlords, for example, would all benefit from property litigation help. In summary, everybody who owns, rents, or leases a property of any kind may require the services of a property law solicitor or litigator at some point.

This is primarily since the property market is so complex, and regulations are continuously changing, that property owners and tenants find it difficult to keep up, preferring instead to rely on a professional legal team’s wide knowledge.

What Can Shergroup Do to Help You?

A solicitor who specialises in property issues can assist anyone who is involved in a property dispute or claim in a variety of ways. We can examine your unique circumstances and advise you of your rights, as well as more information about your concern, at the outset. We can then walk you through the steps of approaching and resolving the issue in a way that is satisfactory to all parties involved, without breaking any laws or causing more problems.

This could involve writing letters, holding mediation meetings, or engaging in discussions, among other things. We can also offer vital guidance and clarity to individuals and organisations who do not have a dispute but require property-related counsel. For example, the owner of a residential rental property may wish to speak with a property solicitor about the legal formalities involved in evicting a tenant, or the owner of a commercial property may require guidance on how to structure their lease agreement.

We’ll also go over all aspects of commercial conveyancing, including the numerous steps and checks that must be completed before a property can be legally transferred from seller to buyer, such as ensuring that the property is legally owned and not the subject of any ongoing disputes.


Property disputes may be costly, time-consuming, and frustrating. They can involve complex problems, making it difficult to understand your rights and legal options. As a result, obtaining competent legal assistance as soon as feasible is important.

Shergroup’s property litigation team can cut through the confusion and help you find the right way forward, helping you to avoid contentious litigation wherever possible.
