Rights of Light

This hugely complex area has seen many cases go through the courts.

For example, if your new building is going to block the light going through your neighbour's windows - you could be in trouble. Or if your neighbour is extending their building and this is going to make your rooms darker, then your rights might be infringed.

If not handled properly, situations such as these could end up with damaged relationships and very costly disputes.
