South Florida Condominium and Homeowners' Association Mediation
In response to the steady rise in legal disputes involving homeowners'
associations (HOAs), the State of Florida (as of July 1, 2007) now
requires all parties to these disputes to undertake mediation before
filing a lawsuit and/or arbitration proceedings. In addition, the
Florida condominium statute allows arbitrators to require mediation in
disputes between the association and its owners and Florida Circuit and
County Court judges require mediation of these disputes before allowing
them to proceed to trial.
Supreme Court Certified, Florida Dispute Mediator
At Association Mediation, Inc., located in Hollywood, we offer experienced mediation services to Florida condominium and homeowners' associations. Our founder, attorney Eric M. Glazer,
has been practicing homeowners' and condominium association law in
South Florida for the last 17 years. He knows firsthand how
highly-charged and difficult these disputes can become, as seemingly
trivial matters can quickly escalate into prolonged and expensive
courtroom battles. For example, people may be willing to litigate pet
or parking disputes that last for years and cost thousands of dollars.
Mediation Offers Many Advantages to Florida Homeowners' and Condominium Associations
aim of mediation, a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is to
reduce congestion in the state courts of Florida. In addition, at Association Mediation, Inc.,
we also know from experience that mediation is less costly, less
time-consuming, and altogether less combative than going to court.
Other advantages of non-binding mediation include:
- It is a confidential process.
- It removes the speculation of what a judge or jury might do
- It can facilitate constructive dialogue
- It still gives parties the chance to take their dispute to court if negotiations break down
