MANDATORY MEDIATION

The mandatory mediation, introduced by Legislative Decree No. 28 of March 4th 2010, represents the activity of an impartial third party who assists two or more parties to reach an amicable agreement aimed at settling a dispute and formulating a proposal of settlement.

Since March 2011 those who undertake a legal action must, therefore, previously undergo a conciliation and arbitration procedure.

The mandatory mediation it is envisaged for several specific cases:

  • Condominium disputes;
  • For real rights: property, usufruct, easement, etc.;
  • For hereditary division and successions;
  • In family agreements;
  • For lease or loan contracts;
  • For Business rents;
  • For claims of damages from: circulation of vehicles and boats, medical liability, defamation by press or other advertising means; 
  • For insurance, bank and financial contracts.

DURATION OF THE MEDIATION

The mandatory mediation process must have a duration no longer than 3 months. The procedure is activated before a mediation body which, upon request, and following registration in a specific register, governed by the Ministry of Justice, it is authorized to manage the aforementioned procedure.

Upon activation of the mediation process it will be appointed a mandatory mediator who will be responsible for dealing with the chosen matter and work to ensure that the parties reach a conciliation.

In case an agreement is achieved, the mediator will draw up a positive conclusion report which will be signed by both parties and their lawyers.

FILING OF A MEDIATION REQUEST

Filing of a mediation request: what is it and what does it imply? To file a mediation request means taking the first step to open a mediation process in the event of a dispute. 

ADR AND THE FILING OF A MEDIATION REQUEST

In a dispute of any nature – civil, commercial or corporate – the best and most correct solution to get out of it for the parties involved is to start a mediation procedure. In fact, a fair and shared solution can be reached without having to resort to costly judicial procedures.

The Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a solid conciliation procedure with excellent results, which resolves issues between companies or between companies and consumers, or even between workers and companies. The mediation procedure is governed by law in order to ensure a clear and streamlined path. 

HOW TO SUBMIT A MEDIATION APPLICATION?

The first step in starting the conciliation procedure is the filing of a mediation request. The mediation application must be submitted to an accredited mediation body – a public or private entity registered in the appropriate register – located in the place of the Judge territorially competent for the dispute.

The application must contain the indication:

  • of the Body
  • of the parties
  • the object of the claim
  • the underlying reasons

In practice, the filing of the application involves the statement of the will to find a meeting point for resolving the dispute, relying on the professional mediation of an impartial person. 

Once the request has been received, the Body sets the date of the first meeting, which must take place within 30 days from its application, and designs the mediator.

At this point the application and the date of the first meeting are communicated to the other party. The summoned party must communicate, within 7 days of receiving the communication, whether or not he intends to participate in the first meeting and, therefore, start the mediation.
