Our employees provide free legal advice and support in reclaiming unduly paid mediation costs. You can fill in our contact form and we will contact you. By filling in how much medition costs you have paid and what the provided services of the mediation office were, we can give you legal advice about your situation directly and if you can reclaim your costs. If the mediation costs were disproportionate and thus reclaimable, we will send you a formal letter which you or we can send to the mediation office. Before taking any legal steps, we will try to contact the mediation office and reclaim the costs. If this fails, our tenancy lawyer can take over and start a legal procedure.
