Home Ownership Mediation

Home Ownership

When a couple is married, it is obvious that they would have a lot of property which is jointly owned. During a divorce, it has to be decided that which parent would have access to which property and this cause a lot of disputes. There are various factors to be considered while solving disputes around the family home as the children often live there too. Therefore, it must not only be seen as jointly owned property but as another basic need of the child. It should be ensured that the life of the child does not suffer due to the disputes over property.

What Is Mediation for home ownership disputes?

You can take help from the third party in order to have a better communication with the other parent regarding the ownership of this property. If there is a provision of co-parenting then you can opt for a family home in which both parents take care of the child side-by-side or turn-by-turn.

Any disputes over the family home can be resolved through mediation and our mediators are experts in handling such situations. The main task of mediation is to ensure that the future of the child is secure and none of the disputes make the child suffer or linger longer than necessary.

There are many cases in which parents have a jointly owned property and after separation, they fight over these things. After separation, it can be very complicated to assign or transfer the ownership to one parent as the value of the house cannot be determined sometimes. Parents cannot handle the situation by themselves as these situations are very complicated.


We recommend that you approach a mediator rather than going to the court while trying to resolve issues surrounding ownership of the family home to avoid lengthy, legal battles and to save you time and money. 

You must decide, with the mutual consent of both the parents, what to do about the family home.

If you cannot reach such a decision, Lakes Mediation will help you to do so. We help you to avoid the efforts engaged in the court by maintaining a friendly environment so that you can share each and every information regarding your child as well as the property you own mutually.

At Lakes Mediation , we give you all the information about what you need to do to decide the value of property and what is to be assigned to each parent.

The main purpose to hire a mediator is that when such disputes arise, the child doesn’t suffer and these disputes are resolved quickly.

There is reluctance in parents when it comes to sharing information about the value of the property.

Our mediators are well experienced to handle such situations. Our mediator ensures that parents have an interest in the life of the child and act according to that.

To reduce the complications that arise in the process of valuing mutually owned property, it is better to take the services of a mediator who is an expert with all the information that is required to handle such situations.

We can communicate this information to you through our mediators.
