Real Estate and Related Matters:
In California Arbitrators and Mediators must be familiar with the standards and forms of the California Association of Realtors (C.A.R.). C.A.M.S. takes great pride that our civil panelists are not only well familiar with C.A.R. standards, forms and issues, but are also very experienced with real estate and related litigation. Whether it is a prelitigation dispute over a failed transaction; a dispute between landlord and tenant (residential or commercial); a property line dispute or disputes related to eminent domain and other governmental disputes, and other real estate related disputes, C.A.M.S. is the right place to turn for an ADR Professional.
Further, because disputes that involve residential or small commercial property are often richly complicated by the emotions of the parties, the thoughtful, compassionate style of C.A.M.S. panelists is the perfect fit for such needs.
Real Estate contracts often contain clauses requiring the parties to mediate before taking any other adversarial steps. The failure of either party to do so may have a strong negative impact upon the refusing party. Our experience suggests that the reason for the refusal is often the cost of mediation. C.A.M.S. offers extremely competitive rates. So much so it is unlikely a disputant will be able to find lower fees and more efficiency from any mediator or mediation service in the Inland Empire or anywhere in Southern California. Since most of these cases resolve without proceeding to arbitration or trial, most frequently, the fee is well spent.
