Background: This training is part of the Housing Mediation Project, a free mediation program that provides Blaine County landlords and tenants with an avenue for resolving housing-related issues without filing an eviction with the court. The pre-court eviction mediation program is available to landlords considering filing for eviction and tenants facing eviction.
Landlords can receive late and no rent payments, save time, remedy property issues, and avoid legal and court fees associated with filing an eviction.
Tenants can avoid an eviction filing on their permanent public record (which can make it extremely difficult to access new housing), maintain stable housing, and reduce disruption if a move is unavoidable.
Mediation is a fair, efficient, and confidential process for resolving disagreements.
A mediator is a neutral third party, not a tenant advocate. Any landlord concessions made in mediation are theirs to make, and there is no pressure to perform.
During mediation, trained mediators help the parties find a mutually acceptable resolution.
Payment arrangements made in mediation are paid 93 percent of the time. If a judge orders a cash award, the likelihood of seeing that money drops to 37 percent.
Pre-court mediation can result in a written agreement that can be used as evidence in court in the unlikely event the agreement is not complied with, and eviction becomes inevitable.
