Negotiating contracts using Mediation Andover

It would appear that the great majority of experts now recognise that Mediation Andover is a method for resolving disputes that is not only economical but also speedy and successful. For a long time, I have been of the opinion that this method may also be utilised in the process of negotiating contracts.

The Landlord and Tenant Act of 1954, which governs lease renewals, is one area in which I have seen this strategy put into practise. Even if, in a legal sense, the parties may be seen to be litigating if proceedings have been issued, in practise, they are discussing the parameters of a new lease agreement.

Customers frequently voice their dissatisfaction with the fact that lease renewals seem to take on a life of their own and frequently result in significant additional expenditures. This may be the result of transactional attorneys going back and forth over the terms of the lease, valuers disputing about the rent, and litigators attempting to hold off the court process.

Would it not be a good idea for the client, together with its transactional lawyer and rental valuer, to spend one day in a room together and negotiate with the other side with the help of a Andover mediator?

This may in the future result in fewer disagreements between parties, in addition to saving time throughout the process of concluding negotiations. There is far less room for misunderstanding if the customer is present during the negotiating process. At the same time, everyone’s attention will be focused on the issue at hand. As the talks develop, the attorneys are able to walk their clients through the many possibilities and the implications of each choice, and they may modify any drafting to reflect these changes.

Other typical types of agreements, such as development agreements, sales and purchase agreements, and even the broader spectrum of ordinary commercial contracts might also benefit from the utilisation of Mediation Andover. Additionally, it might be utilised in the negotiation of s106 agreements, which are frequently a substantial cause of delay in the planning process.
