There are a number of issues which give rise to conflict in the ownership, rights and responsiblities, around property in Ireland. It is said that one never actually ‘owns’ a property, but retains an ‘interest’ in it, for the duration of your own life. How this is managed in your lifetime, and how it is passed along after your time, can lead to conflict, with family, neighbours or th authorities.
When you find yourself in a property dispute mediation offers the opportunity to open up a conversation, to air the issues, to change perceptions, and to bring about a peaceful resolution. Many mediators have specific experience in the property sector. Mediation is a cost effective way to handle property disputes.
