Others: 12. Unresolved problems A. In the event of a problem that is not dealt with directly by this agreement, the roommates decide to schedule a home meeting to resolve the problem. All roommates should be prepared to work together and discuss the issue fairly. B. If the roommates are unable to resolve the problem, the concern may be brought to the attention of the lessor or an alternative dispute resolution service, depending on the circumstances.
n NOTE: You should consider discussing with your roommates how you will handle all disputes, and add in a term that you can all accept. For example, if you and your roommates decide that you all agree to participate in mediation, if there is a dispute that you cannot resolve alone, you can include a clause in the space mentioned above, which states that if the roommates cannot resolve the problem, all roommates must attend a mediation meeting within an agreed time from the date of the meeting.
