Mediation/Dispute Resolution, How it works

The State of Oregon offers dispute resolution or mediation services to residents and landlords of manufactured home park and marina communities. In mediation, the disputing parties work with a neutral third party (mediator) to help resolve their disputes. The mediator facilitates the resolution of the parties' conflicts by supervising thoughtful exchange of communication between parties.

Dispute and conflict are a natural part of living and the natural tension arising from perceived or real differences. Mediation offers an opportunity to explore options, learn from the past, look to the future and generate solutions that meet joint needs and mutual benefits.
