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.
