Neighbourhood disputes are common. Many people will from time to time come into conflict with a neighbour over an issue to do with:
It is often said that you can’t choose your neighbours! But you can choose how you address any disputes that arise between you. You may you have tried talking, but if this has failed, mediation may be a good alternative.
A professional mediator can help you and your neighbour to talk to each other in a constructive and fair way. Put simply, it helps each of you to hear what the other has to say, and to be properly heard yourself. Mediation is voluntary, so no-one can be forced to take part. What you and your neighbour say to each other also remains private, and no information will get passed on to anyone else.
If you are considering mediation as a means of resolving your neighbourhood dispute, then please complete the relevant referral form below, or you can contact us for further details and an informal chat about how mediation works.
