WHAT NEIGHBOUR DISPUTES ARE GOVERNED UNDER NEIGHBOUR LAW?
Most neighbour disputes relate to parking, unsolicited noises, trees and shrubs as well as property boundaries. When these disputes cannot be settled amicably, it is best to contact one of our attorneys at Burger Huyser Attorneys in Johannesburg to advise you on the best way to deal with the matter.
In instances where neighbours become violent, abusive, threatening or resort to harassing you, it will be best for you to involve the police to defuse the matter or to arrest the suspects, whichever is appropriate. Should you have to resort to these measures, our attorneys are able to assist you in obtaining either a protection order or an interdict, prohibiting neighbours from performing certain unlawful acts.
