Mediation Model Clause

Mediation is fast becoming the preferred choice of resolving building disputes.  Mediation, as a form of alternative dispute resolution has grown so much ground that the courts nowadays insist that a matter be referred to mediation before it is litigated in a court.


For your convenience and ease of mind, the following mediation clause should be included in contracts where the parties wish to have any future disputes resolved by Mediation under BDTSA’s Mediation Rules:

“Any dispute or difference arising out of or in connection with this contract, or the subject matter of this contract, including any question about its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to mediation in accordance with the Mediation Rules of the Building Disputes Tribunal of South Africa.
