Converting a Mediated Settlement into a Director’s Order Policy: Residential Tenancies

The Converting a Mediated Settlement into a Director’s Order Policy outlines how a residential tenancy officer can issue an Order of the Director if a party fails to comply with a mediated settlement.

This policy explains how a residential tenancy officer can convert a mediated settlement into an Order of the Director if a tenant or landlord doesn’t comply with the terms of a mediated settlement. Once converted to an Order of the Director, it has a 10 day appeal period and can then be converted to and enforced as an Order of the Small Claims Court.

Information includes:

  • process to have a mediated settlement converted into an Order of the Director
  • wording of the Order of the Director
  • who to mail copies of the order to
  • exclusions to the order if not included in original mediated settlement
  • possible exclusion of some or all of a mediated settlement if too much time has passed
