If you and your neighbours have fallen out and your life's a misery because of the dispute, mediation could be the answer. Our independent external mediators don't take sides; they help find a long-term solution that suits everyone. It can be free and is confidential, and works well when you are interested in resolving the problem.

We can help in most situations; disputes caused by different lifestyles, noise, parking, pets, children's behaviour, boundaries, property upkeep or communal areas and community issues.
