What is Pre-Litigation Mediation?


Inland Fair Housing and Mediation Board’s Pre-Litigation Mediation Program is designed to offer lower income individuals a less expensive alternative to filing a traditional small claims or unlawful detainer action, for resolving those disputes that may not be proper for a lawsuit, and for giving the parties to a lawsuit the opportunity to resolve their dispute before their court date. Mediation allows the parties to a dispute to sit down with an impartial and neutral third party who will attempt to help the parties work out a settlement of the dispute between them in a more relaxed environment at one IFHMB’s offices as opposed to a courtroom. Thus, for a modest fee, the parties to a dispute have the opportunity to resolve their disagreement without the time and expense involved in going to court.
