This presentation will cover community mediation, a free alternative to other conflict resolution strategies including court. This presentation will cover
  • How mediation leaves you in control of the outcome.
  • The differences between community mediation, alternative dispute resolution, and court.
  • What to expect to from a mediation.
  • Why go to mediation early, when problems first appear.
  • Types of landlord-tenant situations that could benefit
  • Behavior, noise, pets (even if rental assistance paid).
  • The 80% success rate coming out of mediation.
  • How to access mediation.
  • And more!
Attendees will leave with an extra tool in our toolbelt for present or future conflict.
Community mediation can help break through conflict around late rent, unauthorized animals, unauthorized residents, and any number of other issues.
