Yes, but most mediators and lawyers will advise 7 people. As a general rule, an agreement is drawn up after a long period of discussion and compromise. Both parties tend to give up a little more with each offer and counter-offer. When the parties are about to reach an agreement, they often feel tired, frustrated and relieved. It is all part of the process. If you wait another day, each side may change its mind. The parties may not remember why they weakened their position during the negotiations and all the work they did to reach an agreement. The deal could fail. However, you should never sign an agreement with which you are not comfortable. If your mediation is successful and you are able to reach an agreement, you will be much more satisfied with the process. You will find that you are less frustrated with what happened and more allowed because you have been able to resolve your dispute to your satisfaction, without a judge having to decide what is best for you.
CjP also has a section for repairs that the owner is willing to do. If the landlord agrees but fails to make the repairs in a timely manner, the tenant can ask the judge to enforce the agreement. Even if the landlord does not make the repairs he or she has accepted on the CJP, the tenant must still make the payments he or she has accepted on time. The tenant does not have the right to suspend payment, even if the landlord does not make the repairs. The tenant must go to court to enforce the owner`s promise. That`s a very good idea. Lawyers are available in the morning at lord Tenant`s resource centre. You can ask the manager if there are lawyers who can look at the agreement before signing it.
If you are not clear on one term, you should tell the other party that you need a few minutes to look at a lawyer on the agreement. Make sure the conciliation meeting is clear, your side of the dispute is clear and listen carefully to the other party`s point of view. Prepare your proposals for implementation, but also listen to the other party`s proposal and be open to other ideas.
