Successful rights of light case

We acted for a leading hotel chain on dispute and risk management issues relating to the rights of light at three landmark acquisitions in London.  We worked alongside our client’s rights of light surveyors to identify and analyse the potential claims and advised on the settlement of some of these claims, as well as how best to manage the risk of other potential claims being made in the future, whilst the developments were proceeding. 

We obtained a particularly good result in resolving issues on one site that had long been earmarked for development but where rights of light issues had previously prevented the development proceeding.
