REAL ESTATE MEDIATION

Any party to a real estate transaction can mediate a dispute -- sellers, buyers, brokers, builders, home inspectors. In the past, when negotiations failed, parties took their case to court. Today, they have the choice of making effective agreements through mediation.

When a mutually acceptable solution has been reached, the mediator prepares a written agreement, detailing the terms of the settlement. Once the settlement agreement is signed, the parties are legally bound.

The Arizona Association of Realtors has established a Dispute Resolution System ("DRS") specifically designed for quick and low-cost mediation of any kind of real estate dispute.  Out -of - Court Solutions is an approved Mediator for the Arizona Association of Realtors.

Benefits of  Real Estate Mediation

Highly Effective

Statistics show that mediation is successful 80-90% of the time.

Saves Time - Saves Money

Mediation proceeds quickly, scheduled at the convenience of the parties. The delays common to litigation are avoided. Since the parties typically split the fees, no one pays an excessive amount.  

Non-adversarial

Mediation is collaborative. The disputing parties make all decisions and determine the very outcome of the dispute itself.

Private and Confidential

Anything said or presented in writing during mediation is strictly private & confidential, precluding public disclosure or later use as evidence in court.

Control

Mediation fully belongs to the parties - not an outside authority imposing a decision.

If a settlement is not reached, they are free to arbitrate or litigate as if the mediation never took place.

Getting Started

Any party can invoke mediation by submitting a written request to Out-of-Court Solutions.  Information packets which include DRS submission forms will be provided to all parties. Out-of-Court Solutions  will arrange, schedule, and conduct the mediation.
