Hiring a tradesman for a right to light/ daylight assessment

If you believe that your property’s access to natural light is being threatened, it is important to get legal advice from a qualified specialist. Plentific hosts information for over 75,000 tradesmen and specialists across the UK, and offers a service that can generate a list of the best contacts in your local area that offer the skills you need. The website will also give you quick and convenient access to customer ratings and reviews for each of your choices to help you compare them quickly.

What do you need to know about right to light/ daylight assessments?

By law every property is entitled to a certain amount of natural light. If you believe a construction, new or old, is blocking your light it can be good to seek advice as it may count as an obstruction. A common example is a neighbour building an extension or a new development beginning construction. If construction is still ongoing, or better yet if it has not started yet, the person in charge will want to settle things quickly, so you may be able to negotiate a joint payment for the assessment. If it is confirmed that your right to light is being blocked by a building you can take the property owner to court, where you may be able to negotiate compensation, a change to the development or a mixture of the two.

An expert will be able to explain your rights and outline your possible actions. Several firms utilise 3D modelling tools to demonstrate how a building’s access to light is being affected. Unless they are unfamiliar with such software they are unlikely to charge you for its use, so make sure your quotes do not include fees for this. You must also ensure that your chosen tradesman is fully qualified and certified as a surveyor. They may belong to an organisation such as the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. You should also take the time to read over customer reviews for your options to gauge their professionalism.
