Thanks for agreeing to resolve your dispute through Alternative Dispute Resolution

If you have paid for us to set up the process through our set up service we will now contact the business in order to invite them to take part and put forward details of your complaint. We will ask them to respond within 7 working days to the proposal to resolve the complaint or to use the ADR process.

Please let us have details of the person or business so that we can contact them.

If they do not agree to take part, we will let you have a certificate to show to the Court that they have acted unreasonably which may be useful when it comes to the end of Court proceedings.

Payment for the set up service is deducted from the cost of the ADR process if the other party is willing to use alternative dispute resolution.

Please note that this service is not part of the approved ADR Process under the Alternative Dispute Resolution (Competent Authorities and Information) Regulations 2015.

2. If you remain unsatisfied, submit a Complaint Form and any documents (and make payment for the service) to ProMediate.

3. The business will submit its Response Form and any documents (and make its payment for the service)

4. ProMediate will allocate a mediator to try to sort out the dispute.

5. The mediator will contact you and the business and try to resolve the complaint within 28 days.

6. Dispute resolved/not resolved – If you reach an agreement the mediator will set this out in writing.

Simple!

Cancellation Terms are set out below.

Payment for mediations by consumers is a nominal charge per complaint based upon the value of the item or service in dispute as set out below:

Businesses also pay a fee for using our service:

Mediation Set up Service – What if the business isn’t responding?

We need the other party’s consent in order to proceed with the mediation process.  If this has not yet been received, we can contact the business or consumer for you using our mediation set up service.

We will contact the business or consumer for you and offer to mediate the dispute.

We can also make a “without prejudice” offer to resolve matters for you.

If the business or consumer refuses to use mediation or ignores our offer to mediate, within 7 working days, we will produce a certificate for you to show to the Court and to demonstrate unreasonable conduct by the other party which may mean that the Court will penalise them in costs.  If they do agree and pay their fee, we will conduct the mediation process.

Payment for the set up service is deducted from the cost of the ADR process if the other party is willing to use alternative dispute resolution.

Please note that this service is not part of the approved ADR Process under the Alternative Dispute Resolution (Competent Authorities and Information) Regulations 2015.

We charge the following fees for contacting the other party in this way:

£25 plus VAT for complaints up to £1000 in value. £50 plus VAT for complaints over £1000

Cancellation Terms are set out below.

This is really their last opportunity to resolve the complaint without Court action.


Mediation Set Up Fee

The parties to a dispute who agree to use Click2Resolve alternative dispute resolution procedure can withdraw at any stage and no costs can be claimed. The average length of each procedure is yet to be established, but will be within 90 days. Click2Resolve aims to conclude the process within 28 days of a complaint being registered.

The process has no legal effect until any agreement is reached when the agreement will become binding. If no agreement is reached, then the mediator will issue a case summary containing a record of any offers made and a proposed solution for consideration by the parties, which they are free to accept or reject. This case summary will have no legal effect, except that if the parties engage in Court proceedings they will be able to refer to the case summary at the conclusion of the Court process to demonstrate whether they have reasonably engaged in ADR and the Court may have regard to this when it comes to considering whether to award any costs to any party to the litigation, with reference to conduct.

The process is conducted by written means, although the mediator may contact the parties and conduct proceedings orally by telephone if this speeds up resolution of the complaint.

The annual activity report will be published here.

The Click2Resolve Dispute Resolution Method
Click2Resolve mediates disputes between the customer and business where they have reached a state of deadlock.
The process is entirely voluntary until any settlement is reached between the parties and nothing exchanged between the parties or offered by way of resolution can be relied upon in Court as it is without prejudice, until any agreement is reached.
If and when an agreement is reached, this will be binding on the parties. Otherwise, Click2Resolve will confirm that the matter has not settled.

If the business has signed up to it, the matter will be referred to the General Adjudication Service for a decision.

At any stage, the parties are free to withdraw from the process and pursue their claim through the courts.

3. Click2Resolve will notify the business and the Customer when the complaint documents are received and notify them of the mediator allocated to deal with the case. The mediatior will request a response to the complaint from the business and supporting documents.

4. Click2Resolve will notify the parties to the dispute as soon as it has received all the documents containing the relevant information relating to the dispute constituting the complete complaint file.

5. Click2Resolve will conciliate between the parties, by email and/or by telephone, to try to resolve the dispute.

7. If no agreement is reached within 28 days, the mediator will issue a confirmation in writing. The parties can extend the mediation period if both of them agree and pay another fee.
