3. If one party is not in compliance with the agreement, the other party may request an order from the branch on the basis of the negotiated agreement. This order may not be appealed. This order is known to the public. If a landlord gives a warning or termination to a tenant, either the landlord or the tenant can ask the branch to try to resolve the issue through mediation. In some cases, the tenant may agree to move on a set date. The branch may enter into a negotiated agreement to confirm that the lease ends on that date. If the tenant does not move as agreed, the landlord can ask the branch to issue a property order. The owner is not obliged to complete an application for a property order and participate in a hearing. However, to get an order, the owner must pay $60.00, the same amount as the registration fee for an application. 6.
Non-confrontational: the Mediator will contact each party individually by telephone. The parties to the case do not need to meet face to face, or even talk to each other directly, at any point in the mediation process. Yes. It should also be noted that the parties will also have the opportunity to reach an agreement at an award hearing if they so wish. The parties have, after a hearing, a “cooling-off period” of 21 days to withdraw from any agreement reached at this hearing and, if they withdraw, the adjudicator then makes the decision, i.e. a decision on the matter that can be appealed to a court in the usual manner. However, if neither party withdraws from the agreement during the “cooling-off period”, the agreement forms the basis for a binding decision that cannot be appealed to a court if the report of decision is submitted to the parties. There are other agencies that do mediation, but such services would probably be prohibitive. RTB encourages the parties to enter into a separate agreement at each stage of the dispute settlement procedure.
If you wish to submit a settlement proposal to the requesting party, RTB is happy to forward it to the applicant for review. It is then up to the applicant to accept your proposal and withdraw the case or proceed to the hearing.

The official shall explain to the parties both the mediation process and the decision-making process. If they agree to try mediation, different approaches may be used depending on the disputes. For example, if the disagreement can be easily discussed, mediation can be done by phone or mail. If it is more complex, it may be necessary to have a more formal mediation. Mediation means that an impartial mediator helps the parties reach an agreement together. Mediation can only take place if RTB considers that this is the most appropriate way to resolve the dispute and if both parties agree. You can opt for personal mediation or telephone mediation. The best way to seek mediation would be to go through the residential branch Tenancies (RTB).
RTB resolves thousands of customer disputes informally each year as part of its customer service plan. Often, after-sales service employees can resolve an argument over the phone and landlords and tenants are satisfied. If there is a written lease agreement (a lease), the start date of the lease is usually clearly stated in that written lease. Information received during mediation is not taken into account in the decision. . . .
