Community and Neighbourhood Services for Mediation
Mediation is a neutral process where all parties voluntarily elect to participate. The Mediation process can be utilized to resolve a wide range of conflicts that arise in communities, particularly between neighbours.
You do not have to agree to resolve your legal dispute at mediation – however, you do have to cooperate, listen to the views of other participants and consider options for resolution. Typically, mediation is used as a forum to identify issues, suggest options and to explore alternatives for resolving the legal dispute – some of which might not be available to you if you go to trial.
Below are a few examples of the types of disputes where mediation can help:
- Formal small claims disputes including disputes between tenants & landlords, disputes over private sales between parties, and disputes over contracting services.
- Informal disputes between roommates, friends, neighbours, etc.
- Mediation of a range of Conflicts between business owners, vendors, clients, patrons, employees, residents of the surrounding neighbourhood, etc.
ADRAMS Mediation Services can provide both the venue and the facilitator to help resolve these types of community-wide disputes. We do this by hosting a conversation involving multi stake holders to a matter and often it is important to utilise a venue that is non-adversarial and a neutral party all stakeholders.
Examples of issues may include, but are not limited to: zoning disputes, Strata disputes, neighbourhood decision making, neighbourhood matters between neighbours. For more information in regards to State Administrative Tribunal and Mediation – https://www.sat.justice.wa.gov.au/M/mediations.aspx
