Mediation Service Offered by Balfours

10/11/2020

Shropshire and Mid-Wales have gained a new Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Accredited Mediator.

Balfours’ Partner, Richard Jones-Perrot BSc MRICS, has recently trained and qualified as a RICS mediator, drawing on his 23 years’ experience as a land agent working with clients in Shropshire Wales and Devon.

Richard explains: “In my field of estate, land and farm management, on occasions disputes are unfortunately inevitable. Frequently business and family are intermingled adding untold stress to protracted disputes which could potentially be very expensive.

“I see mediation as an important tool in preventing such matters from escalating to arbitration or to the court, where decisions are imposed. The mediation process is voluntary and flexible, allowing all involved to retain ownership and control costs.”

He continues: “The purpose of mediation is to clarify and prioritise issues, crystallise needs and assist parties in searching for solutions.  Once both parties agree to mediation it is my job to guide and manage controlled negotiations and to help the parties reach a consensual outcome that is acceptable to them.”

With expertise in long term strategic planning, succession planning, rural asset management and development, the mediator is a neutral third party who can bring new energy to stalled negotiations, exploring how parties can move from entrenched positions, by identifying the real issues, concerns and needs. If these situations resonate with your land related business or family, call Richard on 01743 239210 email This email address is being protected from spambots.

From the dining room, a side entrance hall links directly to the breakfast room and kitchen, with utility and cloakroom off to the opposite side. The kitchen benefits from an Aga and features an apex ceiling flanked with character timbers.  The living room also runs the full 10 metres plus, depth of the house, boasting a large bay window and outlooks to three aspects, plus a woodburner. The study completes the generous ground floor rooms again with fireplace.

Below stairs is a wine cellar and workshop, while the first and second floor provides a selection of six bedrooms and three bathrooms, the master room being a lavishly spacious ensuite. In addition there is a seventh room on the first floor accessed via traditional back stairs.

In keeping with its roots, there is a delightful enclosed garden with mature trees, including copper beech, plus terraced area, a double garage and ample parking. Scott adds: “Presentation throughout affords inspiring 21st century living anchored by Georgian architecture. We are marketing with a guide price of £900,000.” For more information call Balfours Estate Agents Ludlow office on 01584 707100.
