What are the benefits of Mediation attempts with a Tenant?
Even if a Tenant doesn’t engage or respond to a Mediation attempt, the very polite and engaging letter sent by POSSESSION FRIEND can be used against a Tenant subsequently in allowing them an opportunity to resolve the dispute without a court process. Courts are not impressed with either claimants or defendants who are offered Mediation but don’t take advantage of, at least trying it. Courts see this as an immediate recourse to litigation and a potential waste of the court’s time.
Sometimes Mediation can work because relationships with a Landlord have broken down for whatever reason and a third party may be able to secure an acceptable outcome to both parties. We have known of cases where Landlords have used this to their overall advantage. Further discussion of this strategy upon Enquiry.
If POSSESSION FRIEND can gain an early success by using this strategy, it will eliminate the time and cost of court proceedings.
