The “Emperor’s New Clothes” and Mediation!

Guido and Luigi Farabutto were the world’s first pre-suit mediators! Who, you ask, are they? These men were the tailors [swindlers, actually] made famous by Hans Christian Anderson and who made the Emperor’s “new clothes” [pre-suit – get it?!?] Okaaaaaaaay!?!

Well, the Florida Legislature actually gave us some good ideas in the newly amended mandatory pre-suit mediation protocol for community association – parcel owner disputes, F.S. 720.311.

You might find useful information to include in your confirmation letter [you do use one, don’t you?!?] such as mediation advance deposits [excellent choice!] and preparation time. Anyway, these are some things to think about.
