Unless the time and place of the hearing are fixed by the submission, or the parties are otherwise informed thereof, the arbitrators must give notice to both parties of the time and place of their hearings at which evidence will be received by them upon which to base the award.1 If the two arbitrators who are originally appointed disagree and they appoint a third arbitrator or umpire, notice must be given to the parties to the submission of the time and place of the rehearing before the original arbitrators and such third arbitrator.2 If notice of a hearing or of a rehearing is not given, a party who is actually present at such hearing or rehearing can not take advantage of such failure to give notice.3 The parties are not entitled to notice of meetings of the arbitrators at which they consider the evidence which has been adduced by the parties and at which they deliberate upon the award which they are to make.4
