Property Disputes

Property Disputes

A property dispute is a legal dispute concerning real estate. It can involve landlords and tenants, homeowner neighbors, property owners and local authorities, homeowner associations, family members, builders, trespassers, and a variety of other participants. Property disputes can revolve around anything from small disagreements about fence lines to major problems like mortgage foreclosures. 

Here are some examples of common property disputes:

  • Boundary disputes
  • Landlord-tenant disputes
  • Zoning issues
  • Homeowner association responsibilities
  • Ownership disputes

Mediation is one of the most common ways to resolve property disputes, because it leads to an outcome that is beneficial to both parties. More than simply "talking it through", mediation finds the root of the problem. Rather than having both sides hire opposing lawyers, one trained professional runs the mediation sessions. This person remains impartial and non-judgmental as both sides air their grievances.

Our mediators have seen a wide array of situations and we can work with your needs and your budget. We do our best to keep costs and hourly fees low to provide more access to resolution to everyone we can.

Rarely can a client not get ahold of a mediator in our office if they need one.
