As a firm we have specialised in neighbouring disputes since 2008. Having been witness to a significant rise in disputes between neighbouring and construction specialists within the industry we decided that seeking and supporting Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) was key to the harmonious resolution of such matters as boundary and land disputes, right of light, party wall, construction and building disputes.
Commonly parties would enter into dispute over a specific points which may or may not be fundamental to the source of aggravation. Seeking to find the source of the matters arising often allows the parties to find their own paths in balancing the dispute with their own goals and perception. Giving the power to the parties to take control of the dispute and resolution of it is something we strived to achieve. In fact of over 100 boundary disputes, none of those we have advised upon have been taken to Court to date. We now wish to take our expertise forward and offer our services as mediators, to anyone undergoing a disputed matters within our field of expertise.
Following a personal interest and investment into ADR, Victoria Dewey Bruce has now qualified as an RICS Mediator having undergone their property based, dispute resolution, through mediation course and now appears on their panel of mediators as an expert in her field.
