Boundary Disputes

Boundary dispute aerial photograph

NCAP's holdings of aerial photography span 80 years, which makes them a vital tool in litigation. Our aerial photographs can provide the detail needed to prove property boundaries and rights of way.


Many locations across the UK are covered by NCAP aerial photography at multiple dates from the 1940's to the present day. These photographs can potentially demonstrate access and boundary conditions on precise dates. Aerial photographs can provide evidence of the construction or demolition of buildings and extensions. They can depict the locations of features and additional details not present in traditional maps, providing evidence for legal professionals and home-owners. Our Letter of Authenticity can support this by documenting the provenance of an image, and assist in proving a case.
