What can you do about a dispute with a neighbor? Your next door neighbor's tree is hitting your roof and she won't trim it. Your neighbor plays loud music at 3 am on a weeknight. You think your neighbor constructed his new fence on your property. Your neighbor, when watering his plants, waters your car. These are common disagreements or issues neighbors face. Handling disagreements with a neighbor is a delicate and important issue. Mediation is a technique that can help you resolve small to big issues between neighbors. Mediation is a process in which people involved in a dispute sit down and find their own solution with the help of a mediator. A mediator is a person who is neutral to the dispute and has training in techniques to get people talking. Mediation can be done for small to large disagreements. The choice to enter into mediation means that both parties want to resolve the conflict, want to make their own decision or outcome (as opposed to a judicial decision), and maintain confidentiality for the issue. Common case issues that are covered in mediations with neighbors are: pets, harassment, property boundaries, vandalism, noise, money issues, cross- cultural conflicts, improper use of property (unauthorized auto repair, day care, etc.). The City of Austin currently does not have staff mediators for neighborhood disputes, however, below is a suggested location where you can contact for more information about mediation in Austin:
