MEDIATION is available in Rent and Possession Cases
Mediation is a court approved alternative for settling your case without a trial. Mediation provides an opportunity to reach a mutually acceptable resolution of the dispute. Agreements may result in dismissal of the case, short-term monitoring or entry of an agreed judgment.
“Mediation” is a confidential process in which a mediator assists people to communicate and negotiate effectively as they explore options for resolving their dispute.
Mediation helps when …
- you wish to negotiate a payment arrangement,
- you need to resolve a dispute about how to calculate the claim,
- you are interested in continuing the tenancy as long as appropriate arrangements are made, or
- you want to explore unique options for resolving your dispute.
