Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is a method used to avoid the expense of court. It’s an official scheme which is confidential and usually faster and cheaper. It involves appointing an independent, neutral third party who will work with the those in disagreement or look at the case and make a decision.
Conciliation and mediation are the less formal methods of ADR, where appointing an arbitrator or ombudsman is more official. If an independent arbitrator is appointed, they will make a decision about a case which is legally binding, and an ombudsman will investigate how a decision was made and has some legal powers to enforce a decision made on their findings.
ADR is frequently used to settle consumer disputes, but also for issues with neighbours and family.
