If your business finds itself in a land use dispute and direct contact has failed to solve the issue, seeking the help of a legal service provider should be your next step. Here is some basic guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.
Property and land use disputes often arise during the planning phase. Most frequently these disputes are the result of disagreements between businesses, councils and the public over the use of land or a proposed building development.
Mediation provides an opportunity for all invested parties to deliver their point of view in the hope of resolving a dispute. A mediator will present all of the arguments and provide information on the legal issues surrounding a conflict in order for parties to move towards a resolution.
If mediation does not produce a resolution to a property or land use dispute, then it may be necessary to take further legal action. The form this action takes depends on whose instruction a legal expert is acting on, so they will need to be consulted before briefing you further.
Any legal service provider appointed as mediator should have expertise in property law, preferably practicing in the local area. The Law Society's Civil and Commercial Mediation accreditation is a sign of quality to look for when choosing a legal expert.
