HOW TO RESTORE THE PEACE PRESUIT MEDIATION

Under Florida Statutes 720.311, disputes between an association and a parcel owner regarding use of or changes to the parcel or the common areas and other covenant enforcement disputes, disputes regarding amendments to the association documents, disputes regarding meetings of the board and committees appointed by the board, membership meetings not including election meetings, and access to the official records of the association shall be the subject of a demand for presuit mediation served by an aggrieved party before the dispute is filed in court.  Neither election disputes nor recall disputes, nor the collection of any assessment, fine, or other financial obligation are eligible for presuit mediation.

 

STEP 1 - Find a Mediator

You must find one or more acceptable mediators to mediate your dispute. You can find Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediators listed HERE.

 

STEP 2 - Send Offer to Mediate

The aggrieved party sends a letter called a statutory offer to participate in pre-suit mediation, by certified mail, return receipt requested, with an additional copy being sent by regular first-class mail, to the address of the responding party as it last appears on the books and records of the association. The responding party has 20 days from the date of the mailing of the letter to serve a response to the aggrieved party in writing. The response shall be served by certified mail, return receipt requested, with an additional copy being sent by regular first-class mail, to the address shown on the statutory offer.
