PHB Free Landlord Tenant Mediation Pilot Program Launches
With funding from the Portland Housing Bureau’s Rental Service Office, Resolutions NW has launched a new Landlord Tenant Mediation Program.
The program provides free professional mediation services to landlords and tenants with a dispute related to a rental unit within Portland city limits. Mediation allows parties to engage in a full discussion and generate creative and flexible solutions to housing disputes. Mediation often results in higher rates of compromise, compliance, and satisfaction rather than adjudication through the courts.
Through this program, Resolution NW’s hope is that tenants can avoid losing their home, landlords can acheive renter compliance with the Rental Agreement without needing to engage in a court action, and most importantly – relationships can be improved.
Either landlords or tenants can initiate contact with the program by calling (503) 595-4890 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
