Renovation and Neighbour Disputes

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.

Civil and Commercial Disputes

Afsana mediates a wide range of civil and commercial disputes. She holds a wealth of experience in dealing with personal injury cases. If you have been recently injured or have a lawsuit against you for injuring someone, you may be able to mediate your case instead of going to a civil trial. Trials are by nature risky processes as a single judge decides the case following the trial. If the case is not decided in your favour, you may end up having to pay the other side’s costs.

In meditation, both parties are in control of the type of agreements they make and the cost of the mediation is shared. Afsana will help you find creative solutions that will benefit both parties, which can then lead to a faster and cheaper resolution.

Afsana works in the following areas:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents/Insurance Defence
  • Slip and Fall
  • Occupiers Liability
  • Assault
  • Contract Disputes
  • Small Business Disputes

If you would like to discuss your case with Afsana, please contact her to arrange a time.
