Dallas Real Estate Mediator
If you’re looking for an experienced real estate mediator in Dallas, Texas, call Rasansky Resolution Center today at (214) 275-5333. We can help resolve complex and contentious real estate issues efficiently, fairly, and cheaply.
There are many different types of real estate disputes; many of which can be settled through mediation rather than the more expensive and time-consuming process of litigation. Some of the more-common disputes include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Failure of a seller to fully disclose any problems that may exist with a property he/she is selling, or other misrepresentation about the condition of the property
- Repair and inspection issues
- Issues related to the market value
- Operational, occupancy and use disagreements / land use and zoning issues
- Title disputes
- Commission disputes
- Breach of contract
- Buyer-seller disputes
These are just a few of the possibilities that could lead to a real estate dispute, and thus the need for a mediator. While most real estate transactions are completed to the satisfaction of both parties, there are going to be exceptions. This is why we exist; to help resolve conflicts quickly, fairly, and without the need for an expensive, drawn-out trial.
Real Estate Mediation in Dallas
While many people believe that trial is the only way to solve a real estate dispute (or pending lawsuit), the reality is that litigation can be time-consuming as well as financially and emotionally demanding. Taking your case to trial should be the last resort. There is no guarantee that you will win (even if the facts seem to support your claim), and even if you do win, you may end up spending much more on litigation than you are entitled to receive.
Fortunately, there are other ways to resolve disputes other than costly litigation. Mediation in the real estate sector has been gaining in popularity due to its inherent efficiency in resolving conflict amicably. It is not only less time-consuming, but it is also less costly than litigation for settling disputes. In fact, many real estate contracts are quite specific and require all parties to use mediation or arbitration to settle any disputes that may develop.
Mediation is an informal type of dispute resolution that does not require the parties to enter a courtroom. Instead, the parties work with a neutral third party (a mediator) who attempts to help them come to a mutual agreement. The mediator does not have the power to force the parties into a specific decision, but rather assists in helping the parties negotiate and come to a settlement without the need for litigation.
While real estate mediation is usually quite successful, there are some cases in which the parties are unable to reach an agreement. In that case, they are free to pursue any other means they have available to them in order to resolve their dispute.
One thing to remember is that even in cases where mediation does not resolve the dispute, it can still help the parties narrow their dispute areas, express their feelings regarding the dispute, and thus allow future proceedings to move much more efficiently and focused. These prior discussions could possibly even help reduce the amount of time necessary when engaging in litigation. Our founder, Jeffrey Rasansky, can help you resolve any issues you may have through mediation.
