Mediation can be effective in settling disputes between landlords and tenants.  Not only does it leave the disputing parties in control of the resolution, it also makes it possible for the relationship to continue after the dispute is resolved.  It can also assist the tenant and the landlord in concluding their relationship on terms favorable to both.

Mediation is cost and time-effective.  It allows landlords and tenants to avoid the court system and arbitration in resolving their issues.  The mediation process can be used to settle a variety of disputes that arise between landlords and tenants, including:

  • Property repairs
  • Disputes between multiple tenants
  • Maintenance of common areas
  • Access to units
  • Rent increases or payments
  • Evictions
  • Security deposits
  • Noise and pet issues
