The CIArb Property Dispute Scheme was launched in 2013 in response to demand from users, and encouragement from the courts keen to see less property disputes in the legal system. We now have over 15 years’ of experience helping resolve property related disputes.
The scheme applies to both residential and commercial disputes; covering arbitration, expert determination, and mediation.
Under the scheme, parties may request the appointment of a dispute resolver for a lower appointment fee of £360 (inc VAT).
The dispute resolver will be appointed from a specialist panel of neutral surveying specialists and real estate practitioners, all regulated to ensure that they have attained the appropriate level of qualification and experience.
We offer a bespoke service and complete range of methods, including:
Landlord and tenant
Easements and Rights of Light
Property ownership and Interfaces
Claims by solicitors, architects, and other professionals for outstanding fees in property related matters.
Claims for damage caused by utilities to adjacent property under statutory powers e.g. escapes from water mains.
Claims by utilities for damage caused by third parties, including other utilities.
How to apply
For a dispute to be referred to arbitration, expert determination, or mediation under the Property Disputes Scheme, either both parties will agree for the matter to be referred to the relevant form of ADR with CIArb, or there will need to have been a dispute resolution clause in a contract between the parties that names CIArb, or the President of CIArb, as the appointing body in any dispute under the contract.
If the application is unilateral, we will need to see a copy of the contract/written agreement between the parties before we can proceed.
Please complete the application form and return to DAS with the referral fee of £360 (inc VAT). The request form provides full details of payment, and the methods by which the application can be made.
