You can pursue your home warranty dispute in the court system or through private arbitration. A legal action in the courts is a unilateral process that you can initiate. In contrast, private arbitration requires that all parties agree to the arbitration process.
If you are interested in these options, it is worth speaking with a lawyer as soon as possible in order to avoid statutes of limitations that may prevent you from starting litigation after a certain amount of time has expired.
While it is not necessary to have legal representation, it is strongly recommended.
The Law Society of Ontario’s Referral Service can help you find a lawyer or paralegal. Visit their website at https://lsrs.lso.ca/lsrs/welcome.
