WHAT IS MEDIATION?
Mediation is the process where a neutral mediator meets with both parties in the dispute to help everyone come to a voluntary resolution they all agree to. A mediator assists the parties in negotiating the settlement, which is then formalized into a written and binding agreement.
Mediation has grown tremendously in the past decade as an alternative means of resolving disputes, because agreements reached voluntarily by both parties are satisfying. Taking a dispute to court is expensive and time-consuming, and there is no guarantee of success.
The mediation process is non-binding, meaning you do not have to enter an agreement unless you are satisfied with its terms.
WHAT IS ARBITRATION?
An arbitrator is similar to a judge. Once parties agree to submit to arbitration, the arbitrator’s ruling is legally binding.
The arbitrator oversees an informal hearing, where both sides present their case. After the session the arbitrator reviews the evidence and issues a ruling, typically within a week. Because arbitrators aren’t bound by the strictures of the law, they can provide creative and effective solutions. Choosing to use an arbitrator instead of suing in court leads to a faster resolution and saves you legal fees.
HOW LONG DOES MEDIATION AND ARBITRATION TAKE?
Many Broward County residents turn to mediation or arbitration for their real estate disputes because they can be much faster than litigation. A successful mediation may require only a single meeting with the parties. With either mediation or arbitration escrow disputes often can be resolved within a few weeks.
IS ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION (ADR) RIGHT FOR YOU?
Mediation or arbitration is a beneficial approach for resolving most real estate escrow disputes. Alternative dispute resolution is a growing field because of the many benefits it offers for avoiding lengthy litigation. Of course, sometimes a lawsuit becomes necessary, especially if a client believes the other party engaged in criminal activity or is not acting in good faith to resolve the dispute.
