Residential Real Estate Mediation
Maine residential real estate contracts require that Buyers and Sellers attempt to resolve most disputes arising out of their real estate transaction by mediation before they take legal action by going to Court. The Maine Association of Mediators offers a mediation program for the parties to a real estate contract to use when they have a dispute.
Under the program, Buyers and Sellers:
Mediation under the program has proven to be cost effective and efficient as compared to the time and legal expense of proceeding with Court action.
Mediation provides the parties an opportunity to identify their mutual interests in a confidential, nonbinding setting designed to encourage and facilitate resolution with the help of an experience, trained mediator.
If you have a dispute as a buyer or seller under the Maine Association of Realtors Purchase and Sale Agreement that requires mediation, or otherwise would like to pursue mediation to resolve a dispute arising from a residential real estate transaction, follow the Step by Step Instructions and review the Documents You Need.
