Mediating Home Contractor/Homeowner Disputes-On Television
This posting is from David Leavitt, who is developing a television show to mediate home renovation disputes. Anyone who is interested should contact David directly. This sounds like an interesting way to resolve disputes without pursuing litigation:
I am casting Homeowners and Contractors for a home renovation dispute mediation and resolution TV show.
The scope and breadth of the dispute can range from any of the problems you usually see including, but not limited to, type of work, budget, build problems, personal problems, and homeowner changes.
Since we are a television show, we MUST complete the project in a relatively short amount of time (about 6 days), which will fit nicely with the needs of a homeowner and contractor. This means we seek projects that are large enough in scope to show a good before and after experience, and small enough in scope to be finished in no more than about three weeks. Some examples would be a kitchen expansion, new room, bathroom remodel, garage build, etc. Please keep in mind that we will consider all sizes of work if the people and the project appear good for the show.
We intend to make absolutely sure that the dispute is solved to the satisfaction of both parties and that the project gets done right, on time and on budget. It should be a benefit for the homeowner via dispute resolution and project management, and for the contractor for the same reasons as well as excellent publicity for his or her business. And of course, it could save them both the time and cost of legal action.
Interested parties should contact me immediately!
The sooner we speak, the sooner we can try to resolve your dispute!
Please call or email me ASAP!
