DMC offers you a 3 phase neighbour dispute resolution service. This design offers you the option to resolve disputes in a timely, cost efficient way and as a worst case helps reduce litigation time and cost. To see how we may be able to help you see more details on our Neighbour Disputes pages.

Contract disputes

Many disputes occur over contractual issues. DMC have staff that are able to advise you on methods to resolve these damaging disputes. Such disputes for example can develop between builders and land owners or management and staff. DMC offers Alternative Dispute Resolution solutions for all types of contractual issues where the amounts of dispute are less than £250,000. For higher value claims DMC would refer you to their network of suitable accredited mediators.

Determined boundary survey plans for Land Registry

Being Chartered Land Surveyors, Dispute Mediation Consultancy are able to offer at relatively low cost, determined boundary survey plans showing detailed measurements for your boundary. These plans offer homeowners and developers the opportunity for greater security of tenure by providing a more precise and measured detailed plan to Land Registry. This provides additional information within your deeds and prevents the possibility of future boundary disputes due to a poorly referenced old title deed drawing or inprecise Ordnance Survey-Land Registry extract plan.

Our determined boundary survey plans for Land Registry comply with the Court of Appeal requests for developers to provide you with higher detailed cadastral plans to a much higher standard than that achievable from Ordnance Survey mapping. This is especially important for developments in rural areas where Ordnance Survey mapping at 1:2500 is often not accurate or detailed enough to provide precise determination of the boundary on the ground. See more details on how we may help you on our Boundary Disputes pages.
