Both parties can negotiate using an impartial mediator in order to try and resolve the dispute.
It can prevent the dispute being elevated to legal proceedings/court which can be an expensive and lengthy process.
It can prevent further stress, upset and frustration.
ADR is quick so should reduce the time to resolve the dispute.
The company the complaint is against and the customer who has made the complaint. If the customer wishes to have a representative to act on their behalf, they will be required to provide authorisation to do this.
It depends on the circumstances as the purpose of mediation is to gain all the necessary information in order to gain an amicable conclusion between both parties, therefore, neither party can keep adding to their complaint as this can and will frustrate the process.
However, if there are further issues encountered when the contents of the agreement is being carried out, this will need to be reported to the mediator and a new agreement will need to be drafted and signed by both parties.
In ADR, mediation involves an impartial professional guiding parties towards a mutually agreeable solution through open dialogue, without legal binding. This 'soft' process challenges viewpoints and fosters compromise. At Dispute Assist, our mediators specialise in home improvement and renewable energy disputes, ensuring efficient, industry-focused resolutions.
Conciliation, a more assertive ADR approach, brings parties closer to resolving disputes outside court. An experienced officer proposes potential solutions if parties struggle independently. Dispute Assist excels in this, leveraging our industry-focused ADR Officers to facilitate fair settlements by drawing on their industry expertise.

Consumers and installers and businesses must provide the dispute resolution officers with evidence.
The officer will ask both parties for this information if required. On some occasions it is not always required if the complaint is something that can be done with just a couple of phone calls.
The ADR process has a 90-day resolution time with extensions if necessary and both parties agree.
However, at Dispute Assist our aim is to resolve complaints quickly and fairly and our average dispute resolution time is industry-leading at just 5.6 days.
Any compromise agreement is binding on both parties providing both parties have read, digested, and signed the agreement.
