  • Declaring a dispute when selling

    There is a dispute running with the neighbours. We are hoping to sell-up and move away.

    Do we have to declare this dispute to the buyers when we sell?

    What are the ramifications for us if we don't declare anything about this dispute?

    What actually constitutes a dispute in legal terms?

    Anyone help? Much appreciated!

    You will need to reveal it but it depends what it is whether it will maeka difference to the buyer.

    if it is about anti-social activities by the neighbour then clearly a buyer will be put off and all you can is try to play down the seriousness of it without telling half truths.

    If it about something that the neighbour alleges you have done then you won't be there when the buyer buys so it is not so likely to cause a problem, but it still depends.

    Moral, don't have disputes if you are thinking of selling.

      If letters have been sent does that make a difference? Thanks for the info!

        If letters have been sent then you will have to produce copies of them when you sell - you did keep copies?

          Yes I've got copies...what if the issue is never mentioned or disclosed to the new buyers...what's the comeback?
