How Can Land Rights Mediation Resolve a Land Rights Dispute?

The issue of determining land rights can become heated and escalate quickly into a long, drawn out court battle that lasts for years. Whether you are an individual, represent a company or work for a government agency, there are solutions that can be found through simple mediation efforts at a cost-effective price. There is no need to get entangled within the court system when there is another easier, faster and more affordable way to resolve complaints regarding land. It is possible to have both parties at the table come to a conclusion that is satisfactory to all involved. Even when a situation with land rights has become personal, mediation can step up to the plate and bring about a fair and conclusive resolution.

Some of the issues regarding land rights that we mediate include the following:

  • General planning with the county or city
  • Boundaries
  • Permits
  • Environmental quality issues
  • Takings
  • Tested rates
  • Subdivisions
  • Redevelopment

Use and Zoning

If it comes to the point where lawyers need to step in to resolve these types of situations, thousands upon thousands of dollars may have to be spent in order to get things sorted. Mediation provides a solution that is cheaper, faster and much more predictable.

Problems with Land Boundaries

If you are experiencing problems with a neighbor in the form of trees or fencing, mediation is a great step to take in order to get things settled fast. You do have rights as far as your land is concerned and it is much easier to work things out with the help of a third-party that is completely neutral than through an impersonal legal system. Mediation is a great way to resolve individual land issues that involve boundaries when your neighbors are involved. It is also the best method to use for family land situations and for larger issues that involve corporations and government entities.

Anybody that has a land boundary problem of any kind should turn to a mediator in order to see the best results.

Once a problem has been noted it’s time to put together efforts to find a resolution to the issue as fast as possible. Tempers can flare and communication can be lost altogether when the problem lasts for an extended period of time. As soon as things get hot and heavy, it is common for one side to pick up the phone and call an attorney. It would be much better to call a mediator instead to save time, money and a lot of frustration. Legal battles can last for years since the courts are tied up with a number of other lawsuits and simply can’t handle the caseloads.
