The Farmers’ Union of Wales and RDP Law are joining forces to discuss the issue of land disputes and are hosting a special members webinar to address this complex, costly and contentious area of litigation.
The event, which is free for FUW members, will take place on Wednesday 16 September at 7pm via Zoom and aims to shed light on the land registry process, boundary disputes, the importance of an accurate plan, rights of way and experts will share their top tips for avoiding litigation.
Keynote speaker on the night is Rhys Evans, senior associate within RDP’s litigation department, heading up all property litigation and contentious probate matters. Clare O Sullivan, senior associate solicitor within RDP’s Litigation department, who advises clients on a range of commercial and professional negligence disputes with a specialism in financial services litigation and regulatory disputes, will be available to answer questions.
“Irrespective of whether you are arguing over a boundary, ownership of a large area of land, or an access track, an early review of the pre-registration title deeds, Land Registry title documents and other documents by a qualified professional can often be the most cost effective place to start when a dispute arises,” said Rhys Evans, Senior Associate at RDP Law.
“Although a land owner should almost always seek to avoid a dispute whenever possible, we recognise that disputes do often arise, and this short seminar will seek to provide a brief introduction on the common issues we see arise, including some top tips for avoiding the cost associated with litigation,” he added.
FUW Operations and Membership Manager Caryl Roberts said: “These are very complex and often stressful situations and the seminar will certainly shed light on how to tackle them. We are therefore excited to host this seminar with RDP law and hope FUW members join us virtually on the night. It promises to be an informative evening with the opportunity to ask the team questions on the subjects.”
