Set your boundaries before they ever become an issue with our boundary surveys

As Chartered Land Surveyors, Malcolm Hughes has the qualifications, expertise and experience to offer specialist surveying services in relation to boundary disputes in both domestic and commercial environments. We have experience with both English and Scottish law.

With expertise in mapping and measurement, a land surveyor’s work in a dispute involves accurate measurement of the area of dispute, assessment of available documentation and interpretation of how the documented boundary relates to existing features.

Working under RICS regulation and maintaining the RICS Code of Ethics, our calm and independent approach can provide both sides in a dispute with confidence in the reliability of the information that we provide, in circumstances in which there may be a breakdown in trust and communication between disputing parties. This can prove a great benefit in progressing to dispute resolution.

With a growing workload in this field, we deliver reports compatible with Civil Procedure Rules part 35 (CPR35), detailing the documentation that we have reviewed, our method of work and the conclusions that we have made from the information available.

The key to success in resolving disputes is to provide clear and informative plans that present factual information, and we pride ourselves in the quality and clarity of the plans that we produce.


At Malcolm Hughes with our Boundary Surveys, we can:

  • Provide expert advice
  • Measure your property to provide an accurate plan of existing features
  • Compare this plan to your deed plan to enable us to advise on the position of your boundary
  • Liaise with the Land Registry with regard to the title plan
  • Liaise with your solicitor to explain and discuss our findings.
