Preparing for the Real Estate or Construction Defect Mediation Process

When a real estate or construction defect dispute arises, mediation can be a helpful solution. Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party, the mediator, helps disputing parties reach a mutually agreeable resolution. Ensuring that you prepare for your real estate and construction defect mediation session can be essential in achieving a successful outcome. Here are some tips to help you prepare for your real estate and construction defect mediation session:

Get to Know the Mediation Process

It is important to understand what to expect from the mediation process before attending your first session. You should know that mediation is a voluntary and confidential process, which means that all parties must agree to participate and that any information disclosed during the mediation is confidential. Mediation is also non-binding, meaning the parties are not required to accept any proposed resolution.

Gather Relevant Documents

Before attending a mediation session for a real estate or construction defect matter, gather all relevant documents related to the dispute. This may include contracts, leases, correspondence, invoices, and other documentation that may help resolve the issue. Review these documents carefully prior to the session.

Identify Key Issues

Pinpoint the main issues in the dispute that you want to discuss during your session. This will help you remain focused on what is most important to you and avoid getting sidetracked during the mediation process. It is also helpful to prepare a list of questions or concerns you have to ensure all of your concerns get addressed.

Consider Your Goals

Think about what your goals are for the mediation session. What outcome do you hope to achieve? It is important to clearly understand what you want to accomplish during the mediation session.

Consider Your Options

Try to have a backup plan if the mediation session is unsuccessful. If you and the opposing party cannot reach a resolution during the mediation, what are your next steps, and what other options are you considering?

Attend the Mediation Session Prepared

On the day of the mediation, be sure to arrive on time and come prepared. Bring all relevant documents and notes with you, and be ready to listen to the other party and work with them to find a fair resolution to the dispute.
