Renovation disputes occur when the relationship between a homeowner and their contractor starts to become stressed or fails completely. This can happen for a number of reasons. For example, the parties may not be fulfilling the terms of the contract, failure to pay, defective, or abandoned work.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a sharp rise in the number of renovations that have taken place across Ontario. For more insight on this, please read Afsana’s article published by The Lawyer’s Daily “The Value of Mediating Renovation Disputes”. This has naturally caused an increase in the number of claims filed at the courts. Often these cases are costly because of the legal fees and expenses for expert reports and filing costs. Against the value of the claim, avoiding litigation can help both parties save money.
Neighbour disputes can often lead to frustration, causing your home to become a stressful place to be. Disputes of this nature can arise from building code violations, shared parking spaces, property encroachments, noise, to name just a few. Often these matters can be resolved by speaking to your neighbour and agreeing on a resolution. However, if the issues escalate, you may not be able to resolve them on your own and have to resort to legal representation. Mediation offers you the opportunity to resolve your dispute without having to go to court. This is a cost-effective method that not only saves you time and money but can also help you maintain a healthy and sustainable relationship with your neighbour.
