Because real estate issues are often complex, real estate dispute resolution requires the coordination of multidisciplinary teams.  We strongly recommend to our clients that they engage valuation experts as early as possible in the dispute resolution process.  We are convinced the great number of lengthy and costly disputes could be avoided or could be resolved more quickly, if the parties to dispute were in possession of proper valuation services earlier in the process.  Unfortunately, all too often, parties to the dispute are under the mistaken impression, that because of the cost, valuation services should not be obtained until late into the process.  There are in fact numerous consulting services available to the parties involved in the dispute that are both appropriate for use early in the dispute and are relatively inexpensive.
