Why Are Property Boundaries Important?

At Property Boundaries Ireland, we supply our clients with the information they need to avoid these consequences, we deal with the stress so you don’t have too.

We understand property boundary problems are a niche area of the law. Our chartered surveyors have the knowledge and expertise to advise lawyers in any property boundary related legal disputes.

What Our Clients Have to Say
"We bought our holiday house in 2004 prior to the digitisation of the OSi and Land Registry (PRA) maps in Westmeath. For close to10 years we had no problems with our neighbours with regard to the position of our common boundary. To our astonishment the neighbour then tried to claim part of our garden using GPS co-ordinates extrapolated from their digitised LR map. It transpired that the digitised LR map of 2013 differed from their original paper LR map from 1991 with no transfer of land taking place and no change in the position on the ground of the accepted physical boundary features. The change was made in the Land Registry as a result of its mapping practices.
Paddy Prendergast co-authored many publications which we found very helpful. After studying the Green Paper of 2008 and the IPTFPB report of 2014, we ascertained that the very inaccurate digitised PRA map was produced using low resolution aerial photography. Paddy Prendergast’s support and expertise was hugely helpful in us dealing with a very unpleasant situation that was not of our making."
Paddy, I am so grateful for everything you have done for our family thus far. Our case has been particularly challenging with our neighbours. Since availing of your service, the on the ground survey and the very thorough, detailed and precise professional report will play a pivotal role in the future proceedings of our case (disputed right of way). I thank you also for discovering and identifying a further issue of which I was not aware of, the mistake regarding the property boundaries, your commitment and timely manner with resolving this issue with the Property Registration Authority has saved a huge amount of further time, effort, conflict and money on our behalf. I am forever grateful and I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who needs your expertise
