Property

Your property, whether it’s your home, shop, office or commercial premises is usually the most expensive asset you hold. Disputes including rights of way, myriad construction and building issues, restrictive covenants, ownership or planning permission have the habit of becoming protracted over many years, prohibitively expensive, deeply entrenched and damaging to long-term relationships and local neighbourhood or community relations.

Global Mediation works with businesses, individuals, public sector agencies and other interested stakeholders to reach settlements to which all concerned parties can agree and move forward. Our mediators are experienced in consulting with surveyors, environmental officers and architects and we work closely with the parties to focus on the issues at hand and then identify solutions that are practical and mutually beneficial.
