Mediation is a proven way to resolve disputes. With the support of trained mediators, you can get together and discuss things, coming to an agreement about the way forward that can then be made into a binding legal settlement. The costs of mediation are usually shared equally between the participants, and are likely to be significantly cheaper than going to court. It’s also much better for both of you, because the courts are adversarial, meaning that there will be a winner and a loser. This could create bad blood between you. Mediation, on the other hand, is win-win, and because you’ve agreed the solution together, you’re both more likely to abide by it. Surrey Mediation Service provides mediation from its offices in Wallington, near Sutton, and Ripley near Guildford, and would be happy to help you resolve your dispute with your neighbour.
