Notice of Right to Voluntary Mediation

Pursuant to Section 7A-38.3F of the North Carolina General Statutes, all members are hereby informed that you have a right to initiate mediation pursuant to the terms of the statute to try to resolve a dispute with the Association.  Both the homeowner and the Association must agree to mediate the dispute, and each side is responsible for splitting the cost of mediation, including payment of a professional mediator.  The mediation process is an opportunity to reach an agreement to resolve a dispute – neither side gives up their right to go to court to have a judge resolve the dispute if both parties are not able to reach an agreement through mediation.  The specific process to initiate voluntary mediation is outlined in Section 7A-38.3F of the North Carolina General Statutes.
