Parties are strongly encouraged to provide any and all documents and evidence they intend to introduce during the hearing to the other party(ies) and the Association five (5) days prior to the day of the hearing.

Written notice of Legal Counsel or Witnesses must be provided no less than 15 days prior to the day of hearing.
  • STEP 5: Answer Mandatory Questions

  • The Parties to the transaction are the Principals of the companies indicated on this request. You are advised that it is possible that the Principal of the company may designate another licensed broker in the firm who acts in a managerial capacity to serve as the Designated REALTOR® in this matter.
  • STEP 6: Voluntary Mediation

    Voluntary mediation is a process in which the Parties, with the assistance of a qualified Mediation Officer, attempt to resolve the dispute. The Mediation Officer will attempt to create and maintain an atmosphere of communication between the Parties while facilitating their negotiation but will not dictate an award. Mediation is a viable alternative to formal arbitration, if the Parties are willing to compromise. NOTE: If your local Association/Board requires mediation as per their bylaws, select yes.
