The law was interpreted in a case where the Jaramillos, who were tenants, sued their landlord and the property management company, among others, for violations of the housing code. The landlord asked the court to impose a clause in their tenancy agreement stating that all disputes should be tried. The Court of Appeal referred to the lower bargaining position of tenants relative to landlords in the event that the compromise clause could not be applied. The court stated that there is no law preventing tenants and landlords from entering into an independent contract, which is separate from the tenancy agreement.

It should be noted that the words “landlords” and “tenants” generally involve the creation of rental rights, which are avoided in leases. However, these terms are used in this article for simplicity. While Justice O`Connor described the FAA as “a building of its own creation,” the same description could be applied in practice to the demanding and established activity of the provision of arbitration services. As more and more parties began to include arbitration clauses in contracts – as well as the willingness of the courts to enforce those clauses – there were more disputes requiring arbitration.
