What is a mediator, and how do they work

In the United States, landlords and tenants often find themselves in disputes. A lot of these disputes can be solved through mediation. In this article, we will discuss how a mediator can help resolve these real estate disputes. The first thing you should know about a mediator is that they are not judges or lawyers appointed to settle a dispute by law. Instead, a mediator is someone with knowledge and experience in solving problems who may also have training as an attorney or social worker – but does not represent either party involved in the case. Mediators work by listening to both sides of the argument, then advising those parties on how best to solve their problem together without going to court for judgment from an outside party such as a judge. A mediator can be a good option for those with disputes that may take more than just one day to resolve or those having trouble getting in contact with their landlord or tenant, as they are often flexible and available at all hours of the day.
