Types of Real Estate Disputes:

How Mediation Can Help:

Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution that involves a neutral third party (the mediator) who helps the parties to reach a mutually agreeable solution. Unlike litigation, mediation is less formal and less expensive. The goal of mediation is to help the parties to communicate effectively, identify their underlying interests, and come up with a creative solution that meets everyone’s needs.

Mediation is particularly well-suited to real estate disputes because it allows the parties to preserve their ongoing relationships. For example, if you are a homeowner who is disputing a boundary issue with your neighbor, you may want to avoid a contentious legal battle that could strain your relationship with your neighbor for years to come. Mediation can help you to resolve the issue and maintain a positive relationship with your neighbor.

Preparing for a Real Estate Mediation:

Before attending a real estate mediation, it is important to prepare thoroughly. Here are some tips to help you get ready:

Understand the issues: Make sure you have a clear understanding of the issues at stake and your goals for the mediation.

Gather information: Collect any relevant documents, such as contracts, deeds, and inspection reports, that may be useful in the mediation.

Choose the right mediator: Select a mediator who has experience in real estate disputes and who can help you to reach a fair and balanced solution.

Be open to creative solutions: Keep an open mind and be willing to explore creative solutions that may not have been considered in a traditional legal setting.
