Disputes in community schemes are inevitable, and can have far-reaching consequences. It is vital for any affected parties to know and understand the internal and external remedies available to them, to resolve any issues of dispute.
The Dispute Resolution in Community Scheme Course Notes will provide an understanding of the various types of community schemes and how disputes that arise in them can be resolved, by the parties themselves or with the assistance of the Community Schemes Ombud Service (“CSOS“). The course is compiled by Professor Graham Paddock.
