Property, Land and Real Estate

It’s not hard to see why Real Estate should so frequently give rise to disputes. Landlords and tenants, neighbors, mortgagors and mortgagees, owners and public or statutory bodies – they’re all naturally inclined to different points of view. The fact that it’s often a ps home or property in question also means that there’s an emotional and high value commercial aspect to such cases, which is why MCN mediation approach is particularly well suited to resolving such disputes early and effectively.

Whether the issues relate to rights of way, building and construction, commercial or private tenancy, or to environmental or planning concerns, parties in these cases frequently include a blend of private individuals, commercial interests, public sector agencies and community stakeholder groups. Often with deeply entrenched positions and a protracted history, settlements can be difficult to achieve, hence the frequent need for third party mediation or facilitation support.
