Rights to Light
Anstey Horne has the most experienced dedicated rights of light department in the UK.
Working across the whole of the UK from our offices in London, Birmingham & Bristol we have been delivering solutions to affected schemes, maximizing the development potential of a site whilst respecting the amenity of neighbouring buildings
Rights of Light can be one of the key determinants of the development potential of a site, particularly in dense urban areas.
We work with investors, developers, owners and occupiers to assess schemes and provide clear strategic advice on potential Right of Light issues, whilst proactively managing any associated risk.
With our practical and creative approach we look to take account of the commercial opportunities as well as the limitations.
From site acquisition through to the resolution of rights by negotiation, we advise our clients on how to optimise the development potential of a site, whilst mitigating the impact to affected neighbours.
Using the latest specialist software and 3D laser scan data, we create 3D models and undertake cutting edge analysis to deliver solutions to affected schemes, maximizing the development potential of sites and providing certainty to enable development to progress.
We analyse proposed schemes and review the impacts on our client’s properties that adjoin proposed developments. We devise strategies for negotiating a settlement or scheme variation to settle any potential claim for loss of light.
Rights of Light Management
We advise owners of property portfolios on the management of their assets, including the use of Light Obstruction Notices to prevent neighbouring properties from acquiring a right to light.
