Rights to Light - Assisting Developers

It is imperative for developers to establish at an early stage whether any neighbouring rights to light exist, and if so, how they are likely to be affected. This is where Daylight and Sunlight UK’s considerable experience and expertise can help by investigating neighbouring owners’ rights, accurately calculating the effects of the development and assessing the developer’s level of risk.

We also offer practical advice to mitigate the risks throughout the design process, saving considerable redesign costs. Once the design has been fixed, if required we can negotiate compensation settlements with the neighbouring owners, thereby negating possible litigation and helping to ensure the development gets built with minimal fuss or delay. As specialists in this field we would always advise developers to consider rights to light as early as possible in the design process.
