There is much more to mediation than what meets the eye. A mediator’s job is to listen and facilitate a conversation between the parties involved in a dispute.

They are not the judge, nor do they render legal advice. The job of a mediation involves bringing the two parties together to find a solution to the problem that has arisen.

A mediator’s job is to listen from the other party’s perspective. They then attempt to find ways to resolve the issue that is both mutually beneficial for the parties involved.

For example, if a homeowner is complaining about an upcoming foreclosure, the homeowner may want to ask his or her lender about a deed in lieu agreement.

In this arrangement, the homeowner would pay the late mortgage back to the bank and keep the home. 

This would be beneficial to both parties, as it would help prevent foreclosure and save the home from going into foreclosure. In addition, mediation can help the homeowner avoid losing his or her home.

A third common type of mediation involves the parties actually negotiating with one another. This type of mediation occurs when both parties agree on the issues that need resolved and agree on what the mediator can do to help them reach a resolution.

If the parties are not able to reach an agreement, a mediator can assist in finding a middle ground. For instance, if a homeowner wants to avoid a foreclosure but is worried about losing his or her home, he or she may tell the mediator about his or her concern about losing the house.
