Neighbouring/Neighbouring Protection; Dispute resolution Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Trees and shrubs, habits, sounds, cats, dogs and last but not least, of course, the children: there are many occasions for the neighboring community to become a real dispute. Many paths lead back to peaceful coexistence. And in many cases, there are clear rules. The Arbitration Office is set up to settle disputes in matters of neighbourly law (i.e. civil litigation) as a voluntary activity. The arbitration office should be called in whenever the regulations adopted by the competent specialist office (e.g. building regulations office, public order office) are insufficient and the neighbourly situation threatens to escalate. The law regulating out-of-court dispute resolution also stipulates that in neighbouring disputes a judicial action can only be brought if the parties have previously visited a so-called quality body and tried to do so there. to reach an agreement. Quality bodies in this sense are, on the one hand, the arbitration offices. On the other hand, lawyers can be recognised as a quality body. They can, of course, only act as a quality authority in a dispute with neighbouring law if they do not themselves represent one of the parties on a legal account.
