In Place of Strife

The Mediation Chambers

Property, Land and Real Estate

It’s not hard to see why Real Estate should so frequently give rise to disputes. Landlords and tenants, neighbours, mortgagors and mortgagees, owners and insurers or owners and public or statutory bodies – they’re all naturally inclined to different points of view. The fact that it’s often a person’s home in question also means that there’s an emotional aspect to such cases, which is why mediation is particularly well suited to resolving such disputes early and effectively.

Areas which are regularly resolved by our mediators include:

Landlord and tenant:

  • rent reviews
  • dilapidation claims
  • property management, including service charges
  • leasehold enfranchisement [1] 


Neighbour disputes:

  • boundary problems
  • party wall disputes
  • rights of way
  • adverse possession
  • restrictive covenants

 
Public realm:

  • town planning
  • compulsory purchase and compensation
  • environmental, pollution and contamination

 
Professional negligence:

  • claims against solicitors, surveyors, valuers and architects

 
Mortgages:

  • disputes between borrowers and lenders

 
Insurance:

  • coverage disputes
  • subrogated recoveries of property liability claims

 
Agriculture, farming:

  • partnerships
