Although land-use mediation is still relatively new, it is a promising area in which more people seek out resolutions outside of the courtroom. Although there are numerous documented cases of mediation in many disputes, mediators are now exploring new ways to help people resolve land use disputes without resorting to litigation.
A mediator who is competent in land rights is essential in these cases. This is why mediation makes more sense when it comes to land use. You're more likely than not to get the knowledge and expertise of a professional mediator if you are familiar with the area.

Mediation offers a flexible way to resolve disputes, even though many judges are familiar with land use law. A mediator who has a background in land use law will bring a deep understanding to the table and possibly some suggestions on how to resolve the dispute.
The courtroom can be set up to favor "winners" or "losers" in land use litigation. This is one of the worst aspects of land-use litigation. There is very little room for negotiation and the "loser", often feeling frustrated by the whole process and racking up expensive legal fees.
A land-use case can drag on even in a straightforward case. This is not in anyone's best interest and can lead to loss of earning potential in certain cases. Mediation allows for faster resolution outside of courtroom walls, rather than becoming embroiled in litigation. Mediation allows both parties to move on with their lives without losing time or incurring legal fees.
