Styles v. Smith

DATE: 12 Dec 2005

 The court concluded that an exchange of correspondence by solicitors instructed by the parties to a boundary dispute amounted to a concluded settlement which was outside the operation of s. 2 of the Law of Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1989, in accordance with the principle in Neilson v. Poole (1969), and which was therefore an enforceable agreement determining the boundary.

Toby Watkin appeared on behalf of the successful defendants.
