Neighbours law

Neighbours law forms part of general contract law. It regulates the powers and obligations of the owners of adjoining properties. The objective of this law is to maintain and restore the peace between owners of adjoining properties. Common problems are disputes concerning planting or the placing of a fence. When you can’t solve the problem together, you can ask Obtentus about your rights.

Obtentus also offers the possibility of taking part in mediation. This is a form of conflict handling where parties examine which interests they really have. Parties create their own solution for their conflict. As a result of this, the dispute can usually be settled in such a manner that for both parties a win-win-situation arises. This is important because most people value a good long-term relation with their neighbours.
