Determining Appropriate Dispute Resolution Method
Q: The owner of the shopping center where I rent space wants to make major changes to its appearance, but under my lease, the owner must get my consent before making them. I believe the changes will affect me, so I don’t think I’m being unreasonable by withholding my consent. But the owner asserts that I’m being unreasonable, and now things are at a standstill. I want to arbitrate the issue, but the owner wants to go to court to settle the matter. Who will prevail?
