Why use Mediation to Solve Landlord Tenant issues?
Avoid Court Proceedings
Filing an unlawful detainer against a tenant through the Los Angeles Superior Court system is expensive, time-consuming, and overwhelming. Between the time it takes to serve the 3 day notice, file the unlawful detainer, get a court date and possible delays, it can end up costing thousands of dollars.
Mediating these cases before they get to court can save time, money and stop issues from escalating.
You can use mediation either before or after you have filed the unlawful detainer, creating a neutral atmosphere find solutions that will benefit the landlord and the tenant.
Mediation allows solutions that are not possible within the court system and therefore leads to more satisfactory solutions for all parties involved.
The legal fees for an uncontested eviction is approximately $1100-$1500*, with only one defendant named not including the loss of rent. The average number of days from the time the case is started to the lockout is between 45-60 days.
The legal fees for an uncontested eviction is approximately $1200-$1800 with one defendant named not including loss of rent. The average number of days from the time the case is started to the lockout is between 80-100 days.
It will take longer to evict someone who contests the case because the court will need to schedule a date for trial so that the case can be heard.
Why bother with the expense when you can mediate amicable and cost-effective solutions?
Going to court should be your last resort, use mediation and negotiate win-win results so everyone succeeds.
