California Civil Code Sections 5925 through 5965 require community associations and their homeowners to offer to participate in some form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) prior to initiating certain types of lawsuits in superior court. ADR means mediation, arbitration, conciliation, or other non-judicial procedure that involves a neutral party in the decision making process. ADR may either be binding or non-binding, as may be agreed to by the parties. This Summary of the ADR statutes is being distributed as required by California Civil Code Section 5960.
