It makes the two sides see sense and therefore saves greatly on legal costs. Global Mediation I would recommend them to anyone.

Landlord & Tenant

Disputes often arise between landlords and tenants on issues surrounding rent, disrepair, rights, obligations, deposits and service charges and a litigious route to working out differences leads to spiralling costs, loss of income and potentially homelessness.

A swift and cost-effective resolution to disputes between landlord and tenant is of benefit to both parties and Global Mediation’s team of experienced, accredited mediators offer both parties a mutually satisfactory outcome to all types of landlord and tenant disputes that affect the landlord’s investment opportunities and the tenant’s livelihood, business and residential interests.

Working with our mediators greatly enhances the potential for a mutually beneficial result for all parties concerned and focuses attention on keeping the channels of communication open and rebuilding trust and relationships.
