Tenancy Services (MBIE) have introduced FastTrack Resolution resolution services for landlords and tenants offering a way to formalise an agreement (through a mediated order) where parties have reached an agreement in respect of a dispute. It is a fairly simple process whereby the parties agree on a solution and file a FastTrack resolution application. A mediator will then confirm the agreement before it is formalised. Once formalised, the Mediated Order will be forwarded to the parties and sent for sealing.
FastTrack Resolution can be applied for online at www.tenancy.govt.nz. The application fee is $20.44.
For more information on the process visit www.tenancy.govt.nz or call 0800 836 262 (0800 TENANCY).
