Rapleys is pleased to announce our new service offering Neighbourly Matters after the appointment of leading specialist, Dan Tapscott.

Dan will lead a newly established national team focusing on all Neighbourly Matters issues including rights to light, party walls, daylight & sunlight amenity and access arrangements. Dan will support developers in maximising the development potential on their sites from inception to completion. He will also be representing neighbours to construction projects to protect and preserve their assets.

Increased development activity which can be seen in all regions and cities means that Neighbourly Matters issues are becoming more prevalent, both for those planning and developing their property portfolios and for those on the other side of the fence. Seeking the advice of a Neighbourly Matters expert early on can help to reduce the delays, costs and disputes further down the line.

Currently based in the Bristol office, Dan is looking to expand his team quickly to ensure full coverage across the UK. The team is already growing, with Jo Colebrook joining the Bristol Building Consultancy team in January.

With Dan’s appointment, Rapleys can now offer the full scope of Building Consultancy services to clients.

Dan states “I am genuinely excited to be joining Rapleys. Their multi-disciplinary services compliment my skillset in the field of Neighbourly Matters perfectly.

Having gained experience on notable schemes over the past 10 years in the South West, I am looking forward to replicating this throughout the Rapleys office network and establishing our team as the go to provider of Neighbourly Matters consultancy services UK wide.”
