Mediators Assisting With Disputes Involving Property Owners and Homeowner's Associations in Denver and Golden

Everyone has to share space with those around them. While homeowners can enjoy privacy and control over their own property, they may be affected by the actions of their neighbors. Many people do their best to avoid harming or inconveniencing others, some people are not so considerate, and this can lead to disputes between neighbors. In some cases, these disputes may need to be settled in court. However, court can be an expensive and time-consuming process. Many people prefer to find ways to resolve differences with their neighbors in a more amicable fashion. How solutions are found can be just as important as the content of agreements. Mediation is a great way for neighbors to resolve differences that is collaborative and enables a better future relationship.

At Pesch Law Office PC, our non-attorney mediators help people resolve a wide variety of neighbor disputes. During the mediation process, we will work closely with you and your neighbors to find workable solutions. With our help, you can make sure the other party understands your concerns, and you can reach understandings that will help you avoid conflict in the future.

Addressing Neighbor and Property Disputes Through Mediation

Our mediators can help address issues such as:

  • Landlord and tenant disputes – Lease terms, rent, and security deposits can become contentious issues. Whether disputes arise in the middle of a lease, at the end, or after the tenants move out, mediation offers a great way to find solutions efficiently and effectively.
  • Boundary disputes, easements, and encroachment - Neighbors may disagree about shared boundaries, and this may lead a person to build a fence or another structure that encroaches on their neighbor's property. Disputes can also arise about one person's use of another person's property, such as when a person regularly crosses through their neighbor's yard. Parties can find effective solutions by working together to address these issues through mediation.
  • Issues affecting property value - A person may be concerned that their neighbor's actions or activities will decrease the value of their property. For example, a person's property value may be affected by a neighbor who does not keep their lawn mowed, fails to trim hedges and bushes, has trash in their yard, or has not repaired damage to their house. Neighbors can use mediation to reach agreements about how these issues will be addressed.
  • Nuisances - Issues such as barking dogs or loud music can disrupt the peace and quiet a person expects in their home. At the same time, furry companions and music are big components of enjoying and feeling at home. Mediation helps neighbors determine how they can minimize disturbances and maximize home enjoyment.
  • Property damage - A homeowner may believe that their neighbor should pay for damage to their property caused by issues such as flooding from a burst water pipe or fallen trees or branches. By using mediation, neighbors are able to agree on how to address costs and repairs.

Resolving Disputes With Homeowner's Associations

In addition to disputes with neighbors, homeowners may encounter issues involving their neighborhood's homeowners' association (HOA). A homeowner may be fined by an HOA for violations regarding the use of their property, such as inappropriate decorations or failure to properly maintain their home and yard. In other cases, disputes may arise regarding renovations or improvements to a property that are not allowed under an HOA's rules and regulations. When resolving these types of disputes, a homeowner and HOA officials can use mediation to address these issues.
