Property development has its share of ups and downs. One of the problems you may face in the industry, is weathering roadblocks, court cases and other legal issues.

Mediation is a powerful tool that can assist property developers in proactively tackling the dispute in a way that is both cordial and favourable. 

If you face a disagreement (whether on the terms of contract, or with other impacted parties or stakeholders), it can set you back significantly and cause real issues in the long-run, not to mention the short term.

Conflicts (such as landowners pushing for the project to begin quicker, despite unfinished blueprints and other risks), can result in major delays, increased costs or defects. 

This, in turn, can lead to real disputes.

Other conflicts such as breaches of ‘duty of care’, where parties do not fulfil their responsibilities can also cause issues.

There are many other disputes a property developer might find themselves struggling with during the process of their contractor agreement. 

 

In fact, other disputes might include the following:

  • Negligence disputes
  • Electrical and Regulation issues disputes
  • Commercial construction disputes
  • Personal injury disputes
  • Property damage disputes
  • Public inconvenience, noise and nuisance disputes
  • Residential construction disputes
  • Architectural issues disputes
  • Contract and breaches of contract and variations disputes
  • Construction and engineering disputes
  • Material defect disputes
  • Property development disputes
  • Owner-contractor dispute
  • Payment issues disputes
  • Building defects and delay disputes
  • Surveying disputes
  • Insurance disputes
