A useful process in conflict cases

Boundary Disputes

Disputes concerning property boundaries are almost always personal, they can be bitterly contested and in addition, they can lead to the irreparable breakdown of the trust and relationships you have nurtured over many years with your neighbours.

Disputes of this nature can also potentially reduce the value of your home as your most vital asset and can negatively affect your quality of life and in some cases, your health. Plans, conveyances and property deeds are often out of date and not as accurate as they ought to be and the conflict between neighbours can easily escalate beyond what is deemed reasonable.

Global Mediation’s team of experienced and skilled mediators will focus on an outcome to the dispute that not only pleases both parties and offers the ‘correct’ outcome, they will pay particular attention to mediating the ‘best’ outcome. This is the result takes into account a satisfactory resolution both parties can agree to and the interpersonal issues that have manifested themselves as a result of the dispute.
