Can I mediate a dispute with my condominium association?

In general, yes, any type of dispute can be mediated. In Illinois, as of January 1, 2019, all condominium associations are required to have a mediation process in place to help resolve homeowner disputes, except for disputes regarding unpaid assessments. Participating in mediation does not bar a homeowner from filing a lawsuit against the condominium association but it is more efficient and much less expensive than filing a lawsuit. It also allows for creative solutions and gives everyone involved an opportunity to share their concerns and create a lasting resolution.
