Testimonials & Case Studies
Relationships turned unpleasant when a family was in dispute over their property. Eventually the disagreement became so intense that the family members took the matter to the High Court. The parties were the registered proprietors of one undivided fourth share each in the property with improvements. A loan was secured over the subject property in 1979.
One of the brothers, Sam, had the property under his care and was collecting rental monies for the premises rented out. According to Sam, he was using the rental monies towards the repayment of loan and payment of rates and necessary maintenance of the property. The other property owners asked Sam to account for the rental monies received, including payments made for repairs and maintenance. However, since, he failed to do so, the other three owners instituted legal proceedings against him in the High Court in 2014. They applied for an Order either that the property be sold and distributed equally among the titleholders or that the other three proprietors purchase the whole property including Sam’s share. They also claimed that all rental monies being received from the property were to be deposited in the Court until the matter was resolved. This family dispute had built up over the years before the parties agreed to resort to Fiji Mediation Centre for a speedy resolution of the matter. All differences between the relatives were set aside, as they successfully reached an amicable solution. The parties agreed and understood that the mediation proceedings constituted settlement negotiations between them. They were able to maintain their sound relationships among each other. The family members were provided an opportunity to make decisions in the matter on their own accord. This was a win-win situation for the family.
